2024S, artistic Seminar (SEK), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S03948


Open Space is a course dedicated to long-term students’ individual projects. Operating as a transdisciplinary platform focusing on the group members’ projects and work, the course aims at supporting students with the development and the implementation of artistic strategies based on the specifics of their personal projects. As a group, we collectively investigate relevant artistic strategies contributing to the development and finalization of each participants’ project.

The working method is based on interdisciplinary and transversal approach, responding to the challenges of artistic production both conceptually and technically.
Students  share regularly the development of their projects. At least, one presentation of one work per semester is required.

Course Goals:

* to develop and foster knowledge on artistic strategies and their implementations
* to support students with the conceptual and technical development of their projects
* to foster critical thinking and communication skills

* to develop and foster knowledge on interdisciplinary approaches and collaborations
