IP Creating a Context #3: Krakow

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

The CREATING A CONTEXT Erasmus Intensive Programme (IP) Krakow 2014 brings together postgraduate Fine Art and Architect students from Newcastle University, Akademie der Bildenden Künste München, Politecnico Milano, Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam, Glasgow School of Arts, Université Catholique de Louvain Bruxelles and the Kunstakademie Münster  to collaborate on new innovative artworks and spatial solutions.

Using the concept of an international ‘biennale’, the curriculum will emulate a ‘real’ professional context. The students, working in small cross-disciplinary and transnational groups will be invited to respond to a specific site. This practice led approach will be embedded in a theoretical framework that enables a critical discussion and understanding of European art and architecture production and exhibition practice.

Here is the agenda of the two weeks and the Lablog presentation Beyond Memorialisation (140710).
