Every year the students of the Master Photography course at the AKV st. Joost go on a study trip. We decided to visit Tunis during the week of the first election after the revolution of January 14th 2011. This publication is a representation of the work students and teachers did during the week.
The film TUNESIE MAHDIA 18.12.2010 MUST SEE RIGHT NOW!!! is the result of my research of visual languages. In Tunesia I tried to discover what happens if you make a family holiday film, in the same way as the revolutionary films are made, known from youtube and the news.

The others are mirrors for the consciousness of the individual. The interaction between people is the place where culture is born.
What do we think about other people? What do we base our judgements on? And how are our images of the other formed? These are the central questions in our investigative project What To Say about the Other.
