Social Design

offscreen combines design and photography with social projects. Organized as a collective between me and the photographer Susanne Keller, we aim to raise awareness about intercultural (mis)understandings in our society. Through our participatory photography projects, we pursue this by giving voice to target groups that are underrepresented in our society.

We lead the workshop following the guidelines of Photovoice as taught by an NGO with the same name in London.


MA Design

offscreen was created as part of my studies at the Bern University of the Arts, which I completed in 2020.


Community center Grünau

This project has been held with a group of migrant women living in the neighborhood of Grünau in Zurich. The first part of the workshop consisted of a photo dialogue, intending to get to know each other better through the conversation with pictures. In the second part, we encouraged the participants to try out creative ideas by giving them some tips and inspiration for taking pictures at photo stops.

The results of the workshop were exhibited during a neighborhood party.

The photographs taken by the workshop participants Adriana, Amina, Barbara, Golsah, Khadeeja, Mafuhja, Sadia and Zeynep
