Stille Heldinnen*innen – Hinter den Kulissen der Graphischen is a photography project of the 4th grade photography course in cooperation with some students of the 4th grade graphics course. For the project, the pupils set out to portray people who work at the Graphische but are not teachers or pupils, i.e. employees from the laboratory, porter's lodge, cleaning, doctor’s office, secretariat, administration and workshops.

However, they were not asked to take only a "quick" photo. The pupils spent a few hours or up to a whole day with the person to be photographed, getting to know them and their tasks better, which gave them an opportunity to think outside the box and to see who is in charge of which tasks. A further concern of the photo project was to honour the commitment of those who, working "quietly and in the background," make the smooth running of the school possible in the first place.
