The Practice Modul is conceived as a space for exchanging references and experiences and weaving together your own network of the interests, topics and ideas that inhabit your artistic practice. “Building your world” and learning how to communicate about it to others.
We will have moments where we share references and interests that can come from many different fields (cinema, literature, economics, history, anthropology, etc.) amongst each other. These moments of exchange can take the form of reading, watching, lectures, walks, discussions, exhibition visits, whatever the person who shares decides. The students can use this format as a way of reflecting upon the interests and references that underlie their work and trying to tie them together. We will develop a form of “archive” that regroups the things that we all share.
There will also be moments for group Mentorate (Marta and Annemarie together with 3 students) as well as individual Mentorate and group discussions (all of us) of your works in the atelier.
At the end of the semester we will organize an exhibition either based on the experience of the Modul or on your individual works. The form and content of the exhibition will be determined together. The exhibition can take place at ZHdK or elsewhere.
