This photo exhibition comes out of the summer workshops at the Künstlerhäusern Worpswede, during which a temporary group forum was built by the architecture Constructlab with an international group of helpers. The Berlin-based photographer Simone Gilges has produced a series of intimate and personal pictures that capture fleeting moments and details of the production of the wooden structure, going beyond mere documentation. This exhibition is part of the 2016 RAW Photofestival in Worspwede, and also serves as the official opening of the Künstlerhäuser’s new forum.
