Photography students explore Berlin

Our BA (Hons) Photography students have recently spent an exciting three days exploring Germany’s capital, Berlin.

Our BA (Hons) Photography students have recently spent an exciting three days exploring Germany’s capital, Berlin. The optional study trip was open to all students, providing them with an opportunity to experience Berlin’s renowned art scene and gather inspiration for their current projects.

Staying in the Mitte district the students had Berlin’s main attractions on their doorstep, including Museum Island. A suggested itinerary highlighted the city’s top photography exhibitions and art galleries. Recommended points of interest included the private collection of contemporary art at Sammlung Boros and the Helmut Newton exhibitions housed in the Museum of Photography.

Year Two student Rasha Kotaiche shared her Berlin experience with us, saying: "With so much history, art and culture just five minutes from our hotel, the 8 am starts were worth it! We could see everything from our bedroom window, from the Reichstag building to the brightly lit Sony Centre. One of the best places I visited was the Das Filmhaus which explores German cinema from the beginning to where it is now.”

Fellow student Leah Wareham also commented: “The suggested itinerary was very useful in giving us ideas of where to go. However as a group we explored so much more, finding photography exhibitions that were very useful for our studies.”
