Critical Issues and Ways of Thinking About Them

wahv participates in the annual course for school leavers, with two sessions including an interactive element, in contrast to the rest of the lecture-based programme. Between the initial briefing and final presentations, students had a month to compile short smartphone-based photographic reports on any or all of the following themes:

  • creeping water levels: chronic impacts
  • the things that are still the same after a thousand years
  • how the natural world becomes part of built Venice
  • “what’s ok and what’s not” – modernity and the ancient city

Keywords from the session included: allure, job opportunities, food, graffitti, provocation, guilt, sunset (and dawn)
