Cooperation Luminous brings together physics and art photography at the TU Dortmund. Both disciplines
conduct research with light—but pursue entirely different interests; both disciplines observe light—but in very different ways. In the project Cooperation Luminous they enter into dialogue with one another.
Cooperation Luminous is one of a series of projects in which photography students at the TU Dortmund University transfer the research methods of the flâneur to the university. They become campus amblers.
They discover and reveal unexpected perspectives, rupturing the documentary gaze in order to open up aesthetic ways of seeing. In this way they tap into the ‘magic of the university, of which it itself is hardly aware’.
This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition: Cooperation Luminous from 30. 05. 2018 to 05. 07. 2018 at the City Campus of the TU Dortmund University in the Dortmund U
