Liked the Sec­ond Home Pho­tog­ra­phy Ex­hi­bi­tion at be­ta­haus berlin? Check out the panel dis­cus­sion at Cen­tre Marc Bloch! Join our team of young journalists and photographers on April 10th at 6pm to discuss the future of European youth. Why do we leave home? What places are we drawn to? What is the so­cial im­pact of con­tem­po­rary pho­tog­ra­phy? We are look­ing for an­swers. 

The Sec­ond Home Pho­tog­ra­phy Ex­hi­bi­tion, which united eight of the best pho­tog­ra­phers in the Sec­ond Home Pho­tog­ra­phy Con­test 2013, can­not help but stay true to it­self: after one short month in the café of be­ta­haus berlin, the ex­hi­bi­tion is mov­ing on in search of a new home - just like so many young Eu­ro­peans. 

Tak­ing the step from a first to a SEC­OND HOME, how­ever, is more than the mo­ment in which we pack our suit­cases and climb on a boat, train or plane. Be­hind us lie our own well-known cul­ture, tra­di­tions, fam­ily and friends, but maybe also un­em­ploy­ment, fear for our fi­nan­cial sur­vival or bore­dom. Be­fore us beckon en­tic­ing new lands: for­eign lan­guages, bet­ter job op­por­tu­ni­ties and new friend­ships. Why are we leav­ing? What places are we drawn to? How to use pho­tog­ra­phy to il­lus­trate mi­gra­tion move­ments? From April 7th to Sep­tem­ber 30th 2014, the Sec­ond Home Pho­tog­ra­phy Ex­hi­bi­tion will be on show at the Cen­tre Marc Bloch (Friedrich­straße 191, Mitte). The of­fi­cial open­ing will take place on April 10th at 6pm when you will have to op­por­tu­nity to meet some of the young pho­tog­ra­phers in the ex­hi­bi­tion. The open­ing is fol­lowed by a panel dis­cus­sion hosted by the Cen­tre Marc Bloch dur­ing which we will share our thoughts and ideas on "Pho­tog­ra­phy and Youth Mi­gra­tion in Eu­rope". 

Join the dis­cus­sion with Jean-Paul Pas­tor Guzmán, win­ner of the Sec­ond Home Pho­tog­ra­phy Con­test, re­searchers In­grid Tucci (DIW Berlin) and Serge Reubi (Cen­tre Marc Bloch) as well as Elke Pohl, rep­re­sent­ing the Berlin Sen­ate Del­e­gate for In­te­gra­tion and Mi­gra­tion. Do you have some­thing to say about youth, mi­gra­tion or pho­tog­ra­phy? Don't miss the op­por­tu­nity! We are look­ing for­ward to burn­ing ques­tions and ex­cit­ing an­swers. More up­dates on Face­book and Twit­ter
