About the 2015 Summer Academy programme
“The production of meaning” is the motto of this year’s International Summer Academy course programme. We ask about the sense of our (individual or social) conduct, and how meaning can be produced with artistic (critical and curatorial) resources. Many artists are working on this and related themes in very different ways, attempting—to put it simplistically—to understand and represent the world we live in, producing a multiplicity of meanings and opening the way for different interpretations.
