During the preparations for the next exchange in 2019, Prof. Winde and his assistants Samaneh Khosravi and Tim Brederecke as well as Maryiam Kahvand from the Graphics department had a meeting at Nazar Publishing House in Tehran. The collected works of the first TWO-Cities project are now to become a book with excerpts of every students work. After a long process of editing and discussing the layout and the final product, the team around Prof. Winde decided to print the books in Tehran. Last proposals are made concerning paper and binding.
A very long and intense day with 29 photography portfolio reviews. The teaching staff and the assistants discussing the works of every applicant by their portfolios and homework as well as their personal presentation. The favorites are defined by a detailed score system which is filled out by the teachers after every review. By this the decisions are independent and fair. After an hour over time and even some acrobatic strength, the workshop participants are picked.
For the last hours of the Workshop in Tehran, we decided to take a step back and see where we spent the last 10 days. To do so, there is no better place than “The roof of Tehran”. At the foot of the mountain and after 20 minutes of walking, we reached a nice area with a few attractions and probably the best view on a city with 15 million inhabitants.
Tim Brederecke from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund has already arrived at the Teheran University of Arts.
He is giving a three day workshop for the Iranian Students about the use of several digital techniques.
