UFoto - City scout Dortmund

  • The event took place in the winter semester 2012/13.


  • Herr Felix Dobbert, Department of Photography, Seminar for Art and Art Science (Faculty of Art and Sports Science)


The starting point of the photographic university seminar was to explore the Dortmund U. The historic building underwent many changes on its way to becoming a "lighthouse" for Dortmund - indications of this conversion can be found in many places. Using the medium of photography, the "city scouts" artistically developed references to the architecture and the urban environment. The focus was on very subjective views, from strictly formal interpretations of the building to critical and humorous approaches.
