ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL TO REGISTER TO ALL STUDENTS:
In collaboration with the University of Amsterdam and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and facilitated by the Erasmus' Life Long Learning Programme, the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe is happy to announce from September 2010 on:
EXHIBITION ANALYSIS AND PRACTICE IN AMSTERDAM AND KARLSRUHE
A unique opportunity to live and study in both Amsterdam and Karlsruhe from September 2010 until January 2011 within the context of Prof. Suzanne van de Ven's seminar 'Exhibition Analysis and Practice' (EAP).
What is this about? EAP (familiar to most, yet referred to again at the bottom of this mail) will shortly - and temporarily - manifest itself in an adapted format. It will migrate between two cities, be rooted in two Universities, and be linked to the re-opening programme of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, allowing for optimal exchange between students, curricula, art contexts and institutes whilst intensifying the study of its known subject matter.
What does this mean? As a participant you will be part of a group that is composed of an equal number of (international) students from Amsterdam and Karlsruhe, under Prof. Van de Ven's continuous guidance both in Germany and abroad. Your group will successively reside in both cities for the duration of the seminar. Additionally, you will be entitled to join a selection of courses within the frameworks of the respective master programmes 'Artistic Research' and 'Cultural Analysis' at the University of Amsterdam. And finally, there is a possibility for participation in educational projects at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy on the basis of selection.
What should you do? Act fast, register now: As always, this seminar only allows for a restricted amount of dedicated students, invited on the basis of interviews. The interviews will take place during the weekend of July 17-18. In order to be scheduled for an interview, you are kindly requested to register by sending an email to Suzanne van de Ven (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating your name, discipline, semester and giving a short indication of your motivation. Registering is possible until Thursday July 15, 12 o'clock (noon), or until all interview slots are taken.
And what else? Do not hesitate to contact Suzanne van de Ven via email in case of questions. For updates on the curriculum of this course, and for updates on available courses with the Masters Artistic Research and Cultural Analysis, please regularly check this site.
This seminar takes place within the framework of the Erasmus student mobility programme. This means that:
- Credits earned at the University of Amsterdam are acknowledged at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe.
- You are eligible for an Erasmus student mobility stipendium of circa 180 euro per month; we will assist you with your application.
- You are eligible for use of the University of Amsterdam's housing facilities for exchange students; we cannot guarantee your opening, but will no matter what assist you with finding accomodation in Amsterdam.
- English is the language spoken in this course.
EXHIBITION ANALYSIS AND PRACTICE
What is an exhibition? For sure you have all visited many until now, and carefully studied the works on display, but how often have you ever looked at the exhibition itself? This intensive class is an introduction into the realms of exhibitions and exhibition-making, both from a practical and contemplative perspective. On the basis of actual study-cases, visits* and textual material the many aspects of the medium exhibition will be dismantled and discussed, in order to develop a language for approaching exhibitions and, ultimately, a concept of one's own.
This intensive theoretical/practical class allows for a restricted number of dedicated participants and is open to all departments. Students should apply by sending an email to email@example.com and will be invited on the basis of interviews.
* Among others Amsterdam, Antwerpen, Basel, Berlin, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Eindhoven, Enschede, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hannover, Heidelberg, Istanbul, Kassel, Karlsruhe, Köln, Lüneburg, München, Rotterdam, Stuttgart, Unteröwisheim, Utrecht, Wolfsburg.
