Make your own pinhole cameras
The simplest kind of camera: Participants make their own pinhole camera using a can or box and photographic paper. Then the quest for the best motif can begin: Still lifes, portraits or the diverse forms of architecture in the MuseumsQuartierncan be captured with this simple camera. The participants then develop their pictures themselves in the mumok darkroom with the professional help of photographers.

Photograms – Pictures without a camera
Since the early days of modernist art, artists have experimented with photograms, where objects and different materials are placed directly on light sensitive paper and then exposed to light. The resulting image is a document of the traces of real objects. Participants experiment with light, time and materials, creating a refined imagery that arises through the process of arrangement, exposure and developing in the dark room.
