Bonvin’s studio: from photography to video, creating a collective video installation

Laurence Bonvin is a Swiss-born documentary photographer and film maker based in Berlin and Geneva. Her work focuses on the transformation of landscape around large urban centres and other suburban phenomenon. 

My idea is to create a collective video installation made from singular sequences on the question of knowledge, repetition and gestures.

“I intend to lead, share and learn on the process of writing, shooting, editing and presenting videos with a small group of students (about 5-7 max).

We will take Makerere University as a starting point to further explore the streets, relevant buildings and workshops of Kampala. Symbolically opening the University to the city, bringing the city and other types of knowledge into the University.”
