Upcoming scholarship announcements

To enable artists with environmental and social concerns to participate, several new project-based scholarships will be announced in the March Newsletter. Additional merit-based scholarships are in the works as well.

Upcoming Berlin residency highlights
Due to the strong interest in the MFA Creative Practice program this year, the summer program residency in Berlin has been extended in scope and size. Here are some highlights:

– Three curated shows will take place at Milakunst in the hip Mitte gallery district, and two more at the up-and-coming SomoS Art Space. We look forward to giving everyone can the opportunity to experiment, showcase their work and get to know the Berlin art scene. Weekends will be bustling with openings and cultural excursions alongside the regular academic program. There will also be a weekend pop-up event for all students.
– Linda Montano is developing a performance course for Transart this summer in Berlin as well. Linda is a seminal figure in contemporary feminist performance art and her work has been critical in the development of video by, for, and about women. Attempting to dissolve the boundaries between art and life, Linda continues to actively explore her art/life through shared experience, role adoption, and intricate life-altering ceremonies, some of which last for years. Her influence is wide ranging—she has been featured at venues like The New Museum in New York, MOCA San Francisco and the ICA in London.
– 24 European curators and artists will be giving Pecha Kucha-style presentations before they engage in all-day critiques with students on each of the three Fridays of the summer residency.

A program overview of courses in Berlin this summer is here. The full program will be published in the News from Planet Transart to which you can subscribe here.
