Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts 2012

Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts
16 July – 25 August 2012

Two courses in photography

The primary aim of Katharina Sieverding’s course is, on a macrosocial level, intensive discussion of the cultural, social and medial positioning of artistic image productions. On a microsocial level, the focus is on the process of finding the potential of each participant, encouraging individual methods of work and articulation, and providing theoretical and practical support for creative development. Assistants Frank Bartsch, Bodo Schlack (both Berlin University of the Arts) and Orson Sieverding (Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design) will provide the participants with experimental and conceptual support in the analogue and digital laboratories

Duration: 6 – 25 August 2012

The course with Jo Ractliffe, Not a thousand words: photography and narrative, explores photography’s spaces of slippage – between real and imaginary, fact and fiction, truth and lie. Much of the course will focus on the tension between photography’s documentary status and its fictive capacities, especially with regard to its evocative and associative potentials in narrative construction.
Participants will work as a group on a ‘cut-up’ storyboard project, as well as individually on their own projects, exploring a range of visual modes and forms, image/text relations and narrative strategies.

Duration: 16 July – 4 August 2012

Costs: € 840.- (red. € 600.-)

Master of Arts in Contemporary Arts Practice: Call for applications until 15th of April 2012

MA CONTEMPORARY ARTS PRACTICE


The Master of Arts in Contemporary Arts Practice is a multidisciplinary degree course for artists from the visual arts, the performing arts, music and literature. Its starting point is the student’s individual approach and choice of emphases; together with interdisciplinary projects it enables multidisciplinary exchanges with students and teaching staff from other disciplines.

The course aims to foster an independent artistic outlook within a framework of collective and interdisciplinary working interrelationships. The course of study sharpens students’ individual artistic practices through direct engagement with other artistic strategies. A knowledge of current discourse in other art forms causes their view of their own work to change.
SPECIALISATIONS
We offer four options of specialisations: Fine Arts, Music and Media Art, Literary Writing, Performance Art
