The Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts welcomes your application to participate in one of its 19 courses.

About the 2020 Summer Academy programme
The programme of the 2020 Summer Academy aims to tackle fundamental questions of art, text and curatorial production. Under the motto New horizons, the 2020 course programme seeks new possibilities for the creative artist, curator or writer to define their own position in the world in which we live. How, in times of worldwide rebellions, shocking consequences of climate change and unequal distribution of resources, can new horizons be conquered in each respective work?

Teachers: Bani Abidi, Caroline Achaintre, Sammy Baloji/Lotte Arndt, Cäcilia Brown/Anna Hofbauer/Mikkel Holm Torp, Eli Cortiñas, Brenda Draney, Per Dybvig, Louisa Elderton/Klaus Speidel, Marina Fokidis, Thea Gvetadze, Nadira Husain, Cameron Jamie, Randa Mirza/Lara Tabet, Noële Ody/Toni Schmale, Ahmet Öğüt, Tobias Pils, Vaclav Pozarek, Nicolaus Schafhausen, Massinissa Selmani
