This workshop is about understanding what the body as an object means in nature from the point of view of a photographer. How is it possible to reflect one’s feelings to the outer world?
We will explore how to inspire each other and how to work together. Working in teams and individually, I would like to invite you to study and question yourselves and your connection to the surrounding world – including your teammates, friends, and the constructed physical world.
Also, I would like to ask you to bring in and connect your personal experiences and your own, true personality into this creative process.
Day 1 (first part): I would like to ask each of you to prepare a short introduction about your work and the objects you brought. Please look around at your home or your close neighborhood and pick one object that you really like/love and another that you hate (like plants, books, clothes, knick-knacks, etc…) Bring them to the workshop. You will be asked to describe them and to tell what your relationship is with the objects and why you like/hate them in 5-10 phrases. I will also give you a short presentation/explanation of my work and projects.
Then we will also start the first photo-shooting session of the workshop.
Day 1 (second part) and Day 2 (first part): This is going to be the main part of the workshop when most of the images, objects, and installation ideas should be realized. Example: one person/group creates a first set in 30mins-2hours time to set up and produce the photographs. Then they are ready to show it to the others, who are going to form small groups to work together on being inspired by this image/set and create a response. Then new groups create new responses, etc, etc… until the idea escalates and achieves a certain form. Then we stop it and restart with a new idea… This is how to keep connections between different images created by different people/groups… For the start of this idea, it would be helpful if all of you could bring in a few favorite/hated objects from home, let them be used by others, etc. The goal is to let you produce and develop an idea of what you discover together.
Day 2 (second part): Finalisation of the projects, taking last images, selection/sequencing, printing, and building the final result into a group installation or pop-up exhibition.
Yes, if you are a student of a professional who is interested in the relationship between photography, objects and installations to represent your research or a certain topic.

Bring your camera, laptop and please bring two objects from your own home for the first day (we will start with this part): one object that you like and an object that you hate. These should be objects that you can spare during the weekend and keep with us during the whole workshop. Along with the objects you are asked to write down and print out in 5-10 phrases your description and personal relation to the objects.

Peter Puklus is an artist currently living and working in Budapest, Hungary. He studied photography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest (MOME) and new media design at the École National Supérieur de Création Industriel (ENSCI) in Paris.
Puklus is a returning lecturer and workshop leader in photography at MOME, Budapest and CEPV, Vevey, Switzerland.
In 2012 Puklus published two photo-books: ‘One and a half meter‘ with Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg and ‘Handbook to the Stars‘ with Stokovec, Banská Stiavnica. In 2016 Puklus published his third photobook ‘The Epic Love Story of a Warrior‘ in cooperation with Self Publish, Be Happy, London. This title got shortlisted at the Aperture / Paris Photo Photobook Award 2016. Recent solo exhibitions of Puklus include ‘Life is Techno’ at Trafó Gallery, Budapest, ‘New Works‘ at Conrads Gallery, Düsseldorf, ‘Unsafe to Dance‘ in C/O Berlin, Berlin, ‘One and a half meter‘ in Robert Morat Gallery, Berlin and ‘The Epic Love Story of a Warrior’ at Capa Center, Budapest and Raster Gallery, Hungary.
The most recent project of Puklus entitled ‘The Hero Mother – How to build a house’ received Grand Prix Images Vevey 2017–2018. Related recent exhibitions are ‘The Hero Mother – How to build a house’ in Images Festival, Vevey, and ‘The Hero Mother – Subtitle‘ at Glassyard Gallery, Budapest, Hungary. This project has been published in a book form under the same title in cooperation with Witty Books and Image Vevey in October, 2021.
Beside the photographic gaze which can always be found in the center of Puklus’ works, he recently started to explore undiscovered territories beyond the wooden frame. His recent projects involve sculptures, objects, paintings, installations, drawings and videos. Either in the gallery space or in a photo-book form, storytelling has a substantial role. Puklus mixes different genres and medias and makes them relate each other. Oil on canvas paintings, tufted rugs and wooden installations became more and more visible and are usually mixed with photography and other medias in his most recent solo shows, such as ‘You told I had beautiful hands’ at Artkartell projectspace, Budapest in 2020, ‘My language is not silence’ at Glassyard Gallery, Budapest in 2021 or in the group show ‘Metaphysical Passage Through a Zebra’ at Ludwig Museum, Budapest in 2021.
Puklus is represented by Glassyard Gallery in Budapest and by Robert Morat Gallery in Berlin.
