LANDSCAPE AS CHARACTER
August 19th - 26th 2017
in Lemvig, DK
After the great success of last year’s Summer School in Aarhus, we are hosting another summer camp this year in Lemvig under the title “Landscape as Character.”
The CAFx Summer School 2017 will focus on the temporal nature and character of the Danish landscape. With reference to the 17 UN goals for a better world, we will shed light on the future, present, and past of the magnificent sceneries that make up Western Jutland.
Our landscape was generated 10,000 years ago by the huge glaciers of the last ice age and is now under transformation from rising sea levels as a product of climate change and by other hyperobjects.
Come explore these transformations landscape under the guidance of a team of excellent filmmakers and architects. At the summer school, you will meet the renowned filmmaker Johann Lurf (AUT), the architect and filmmaker Morten Meldgaard (KADK) and the veteran architect and educator Peter Henning Jørgensen (KADK). Through the medium of film, they will work with students to investigate the landscape and seascape of the small Danish fishing industry town of Lemvig.
Participants will work in groups with film, photography, montage, drawings, maps, and found objects. The final results will be screened publicly to a wider audience in Lemvig.
If you are a student, a professional in the fields of relevance or if you are simply interested in the field of landscape and film and have basic experience working with film, sign up now for our summer school in August 2017.
The 2017 Summer School has been conceived by CAFx with support from the Aarhus2017 programme and Municipality of Lemvig and realised in collaboration with the KADK’s School of Architecture.
