The Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art is a roving art academy that was initiated in Saas-Fee, Switzerland, 2015. This summer it will take place in Berlin, Germany in association with Import Projects and the Kunstverein Rosa-Luxembourg Platz. It will concern Art and the Politics of Individuation and utilize the writings of Gabriele Tarde and Gilbert Simondon as its foundation to explore such topics as the politics of affect, the gendered brain, the cognitive turn in cognitive capitalism, the multiple body and the effect of metadata.

Inquisitive students and professionals hailing from artistic discourses such as painting, drawing, film making, sculpture, performance, sound studies and installation as well as those associated with the aligned fields of poetry, cultural studies, gender and queer studies, architecture, philosophy of mind, neuroscience, sociology and politics, are encouraged to apply. Lectures, discussions and workshops with outstanding artists and thinkers will be accompanied by an exhibition produced by participants in the last days of the course.
