Blinde Fotograf:innen, junge Migrant:innen, Schüler:innen und Gehörlose: Aus sehr unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln schauen wir im f/stop LABOR auf das Thema TRUST/vertrauen. Die sozio-kulturellen Perspektiven setzen sich mit Fragen des gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhalts auseinander. Im Labor experimentieren vier Gruppen und entwickeln dabei eigene Arbeiten im Dialog zu den künstlerischen Positionen der Hauptausstellung, vom Essay über einen Vodcast bis hin zu einer Plakatwand. Die Entstehungsprozesse lassen sich online mitverfolgen.
