Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts 2011

Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts

Application Deadline May 15th
For courses at Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts 2011

 

The Summer Academy 2011 offers 20 courses with renowned international artists in painting, drawing, figure modelling, printmaking, stone sculpture, photography, jewellery and garden architecture.

 

“What do pictures tell us? Our world is full of them, and there should be good reasons for adding to them. What kind of reasons could these be?” asks Peter Friedl (i.e. documenta 12 Kassel 2007) in his course “Pictures as concepts” from 18 July to 6 August 2011. The course evokes not so much the materiality of art, as its potential for intensifying aesthetic experiences and finding suitable models.

 

“Acts with objects in urban space”, this is what Christian Philipp Müller (currently contributing to the exhibition “Theatergarten Bestiarium” at Haus der Kunst, Munich) tries out with the participants of his course from 8 to 27 August 2011. Finding the ideal place will be as important as an adequate documentation.

Application Deadline May 15th
For courses at Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts 2011

The courses are in painting, drawing, figure modelling, performance, printmaking, stone sculpture, photography, jewellery and garden architecture. Beside of the application deadline we want to focus on the courses mentioned below. Deadline for regular applications is 15 May!

 

PETER FRIEDL / Pictures as concepts
18 July–6 August 2011

 

What do pictures tell us? Our world is full of them, and there should be good reasons for adding to them. Anyone who exhibits something is thereby creating new realities, and strictly speaking, exhibition is a medium. The course evokes not so much the materiality of art, as its potential for intensifying aesthetic experiences and finding suitable models. It is designed for those with unreserved interest in both theory and practice. The end result may be pictures, installations, performances, texts, lectures or new ideas. Peter Friedl’s conceptual work deals with the wide variety of conditions, possibilities and genres for the representation of complex topics against the background of the relevant (hi)story. Using various forms of medium and style, he explores political, cultural, biographical and aesthetic power configurations.

 

CHRISTIAN PHILIPP MÜLLER / Acts with objects in urban space, performance and sculpture
8–27 August 2011

 

The course is in three parts: designing an act in public space, defining sculptural objects and developing modes of documentation as an art forum. During the course, details will be worked out for actions for the urban space of Salzburg Old Town. Therefore objects and portable sculptures will be produced and ideal locations and times for implementation will be established. The aim is to stage one’s own body in urban space, improvising with objects and other performers. Christian Philipp Müller’s intermedial works are linked by a strict but humorous methodical premise: the production of a work starts from its context and occasion. Since the late 1980s his works have updated the designs of historical concept art and institutional critique on the basis of an extended perception of site-specific art.

KATRINA DASCHNER / Performance and the performative
8–27 August 2011

 

Again international performance artist Katrina Daschner will offer a 3-week performance class. The course will start with the presentation of some performative approaches describing various treatments within performance, but mainly based in the visual arts. It may conclude with a design for a performance as a work in itself, a rendering in photographs or film, a dramatic spatial concept or a live performance.

 

Katrina Daschners approach of performance is based on a wider concept including conceptual performance, performative installation, videos or photographic works, dramatic staging and theatrical production, as well as performative speech act or social gender identity attribution.
