Commissioned work for Hokksund Junior High School (2012)

As part of the art program for Hokksund Junior High School, I organized and carried out a workshop for a group of sixteen students attending the 10th grade, in collaboration with Jon Benjamin Tallerås. The aim of the workshop was to pinpoint some questions about the media culture and camera based art, in addition to teach the students about photography and video as a means of expression, both theoretically and practically. We tried to discuss what it means to participate in a photographic culture where assessments, identities, ideals and power are being articulated and performed through and with photos. And we were interested in finding out how meaning is created in video/photography and how we can obtain tools to construct stories about ourselves and our own identity.
