Die Werkstatt als Material- und Ideenlabor I

2018W, Seminar (SE), 2.0 semester hours, course number S02312


During this semester each of the participating students should get the possibility to find his/her very personal way to enter the dialectic relationship between the materiality of the world and the artists ideas.


Considering the process of artistic work its like the chicken-egg-problem. We have ideas try to form materials and things according to our ideas. But: There is no idea without prior experience with materials, which triggered this idea.

Knowing this prevents from getting stuck in endless elobarations of concepts before getting started with doing art. 


Examination Modalities

Students should be participating in at least 70% of the total time.

hand-on-mentality is expected. At the semester's end we will organize an exhibition at one of the Viennese "artist-run" spaces.
