Short introduction from the Artist about the workshop’s main focus:

Regarding the different appearances of daily life, the main aspect of this lecture/seminar is a visual research on the “landmarks”, made by city residents in their subtile and obvious facettes. 

(Re-)arranging, creating and composing the urban space is based on individual and public habits, mostly directed by personal needs and intentions. The results are subtile and sustainable changes of the city architecture and public spaces. 

Order as social form” is a current part of Manuel Schroeder’s lectures in “social photography”, a field of research I’m realizing with universities, schools, art associations and museums since 2006.
