São Paulo–based photographer Claudia Andujar (b. 1931, in Neuchâtel, CH) has dedicated over four decades of her work to the Yanomami, an indigenous community living in the Amazon region in the northern part of Brazil. In the 1970s, when the Yanomami’s local habitat found itself exposed to severe external threats, the photographer turned to activism and from that point on devoted her life and work to campaigning for the community’s legal rights.

Family workshop: Photogram – Creating with Light

Photograms are pictures that are taken in the darkroom without a camera. As you experiment with different materials and creative ideas, you will create a wide range of interesting compositions.  Light reflections, shadow plays, razor-sharp silhouettes and superimpositions – the sole requirements are light, photographic paper and fluids. This workshop requires a minimum of five registered participants and is limited to a maximum of twelve people, based on the space available in the photo lab. The workshop is held in German.

Workshop: Camera Obscura – Back to the Origins of Photography

This workshop is devoted to the phenomenon of the camera obscura. After entering the museum’s very own “dark chamber”, you will experiment with pinhole cameras and expose your own images outside, which we will then develop together in the black-and-white lab. The resulting negatives and positives are yours to take home with you. This workshop requires a minimum of five registered participants and is limited to a maximum of twelve people, based on the space available in the photo lab. The workshop is held in German.

Workshop: Cyanotype – The Fine Blueprint Process

Immerse yourself in this old but still wonderful fine printing process. John Herschel developed this unique technique in 1842 in an attempt to find a method for producing durable photographic images. After an introduction, we prepare the chemical solution used for the coating. Once the paper is ready, you cover it with your motif. Then we expose and develop it. A few additional tips and tricks from a professional will enable you to manipulate or colourise your pictures. This workshop requires a minimum of five registered participants and is limited to a maximum of twelve people, based on the space available in the photo lab. In order to produce the pictures, you will need a digital negative. Further information will be provided upon registration. The workshop is held in German.
