Deadline for summer acceptance: June 15, 2013
Transart, the Unschool Art School
Berlin and New York
Validated by Plymouth University, UK
Very few spots left for this year’s Transart MFA and Certificate programs.
This summer in Berlin,
make a collective stop-motion animation in one day, watch and discuss Afropean films for another; sit in on 24 talks in the “Trans-what?” symposium, take a tour to the outer edges of Berlin from the film Umland, explore the politics of place through the ecological metaphors of “The Native and the Invasive,” walk the walk in the workshop “Within Walking Distance,” inquire into what actually happens when we think, share, engage in a voice lab and perform your voice across the thresholds of personal limits, stay up too late, approach ways of ending without making it an end in itself, hear Ensemble Xenon’s composer-performers straddle the fence between free and noted music, take on a life-drawing class with a life of it’s own, experiment, cafe hop in “Writing Art/Artist’s Writing,” consider displacement in a mobile discussion group, get lost, critique critiques, see all the nominated films from the Nostalgia short film fest over several evenings, don’t think about your job once for three weeks, participate in speed crits and slow crits, perform or show in a public open-frame event, get new takes on old work, show new work for the first time, learn the basics of psychoacoustics, hear what fifty other artists are up to pecha kucha style, go to openings, galleries, fool around, get suggestions for a list of books on your topic you can’t put down.
Take it all back to your studio along with your plans and create a body of work like nothing you’ve done before.
Be assured of the support, encouragement, feedback and resources you need in order to take all necessary risks.
Find a sustainable balance. Keep working, pay as you go.
Work on-site and online: two winter sessions in New York, three summer sessions in Berlin, work wherever you want.
Talk to Transartists, faculty and advisors by Skype or in person to hear more.
But first, apply for summer acceptance by June 15, 2013.
