The Danish School of Media and Journalism is Denmark's largest education and research institution in journalism. DMJX trains communicators who can create messages in words, images or animations that other people can decode and understand - and thus shape the world with.
The two campuses in Copenhagen and Aarhus educate everything from communicators, journalists and photographers to TV and media organisers, as well as graphic and interactive designers. Across their diversity, they all bear the DMJX trademark: they can tailor messages to target audiences, develop ideas and concepts and produce on time.
Through application-oriented research, knowledge is created for the benefit of industries and education, so that they are always relevant to the labour market.
DMJX also has a unique global collaboration with approximately 100 universities in more than 30 countries across disciplines.
An exhibition of work by photojournalists DMJX is renowned for educating world class photojournalists, and it is the only school with a documentary approach. The photojournalists find their stories among real people, and they use their photos to document the time that we are living in. Guests are invited to see an exhibition of the students’ latest work. Students will be presenting and elaborating the ideas behind their work.
The acknowledged Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist has exhibited her video installations all over the world and in 2020 she installed her biggest permanent work yet at DMJX’s facilities. The installation is titled Earth lights and ping pong with the sun and consists of multiple hours of video material which paints surfaces, interiors, and bodies with light.
The video artwork is only turned on for ten minutes each hour at those times of the day when daylight does not interfere which makes it unlikely to experience the exact same kaleidoscopic projections twice. The vision behind the art installation is to inspire and to be of benefit to the students who are enrolled in DMJX’s courses. Pipilotti Rist’s art installation will be on display for the conference guests of the Impact Tour at DMJX.
DMJX takes part in creating the development of tomorrow through the ambition: Why follow the development, when you can create it yourself? With an innovative approach, practice-oriented research lays the foundation for practical experience-focused educational courses where journalist students get in touch with reality in the ever-changing media industry. Julie Sommerlund, the new rector at DMJX will present the school and her ideas of how to educate the journalists and communicators of tomorrow.
The Impact tour invites conference guests together with citizens of Aarhus to visit DMJX’s campus in Aarhus. Guests have the opportunity to hear more about DMJX’s visions, enjoy an exhibition of the work of the photojournalists from the school as well as the opportunity to experience the video-based light installation by artist Pipilotti Rist.
