About the 2018 Summer Academy Programme
The focus this year will be on combining genres and techniques in the artistic process—as for instance from painting to sound with Ei Arakawa, or from performance to installation with Yorgos Sapountzis. Also, in a photography course Ahlam Shibli, artist at documenta 14, explores the notion of "home."

Instruction will also be given in techniques and crafts. Aisha Khalid directs the course on the traditional technique of miniature painting, Caroline Achaintre uses a variety of materials to "bring objects to life," and Jakob Kolding focuses on the method of collage.

Teachers 2018:
Caroline Achaintre, Ei Arakawa, Diana Campbell Betancourt, Tony Chakar, Martin Herbert, Aisha Khalid, Jakob Kolding, Andreas Lolis, Till Megerle, Ruth Noack, Emeka Okereke, Ciara Phillips, Yorgos Sapountzis, Hubert Scheibl, Ekaterina Shapiro-Obermair, Ahlam Shibli, Sabrina Steinek/Sabine B. Vogel, Mark Van Yetter
