International Summer Academy of Fine Arts – Lectures/Discussions (Salzburg)
Salzburg, University of Salzburg, Unipark Nonntal, July 20 – August 21,
Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts Programme of events, lectures and discussions 2012
The 2012 programme of events presented by the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts focuses on the topical theme of The studio.
As a place of production, the studio is a highly-charged, mysticised place where art is created. Here the artist invents him/herself. Here the production methods and their historical development become apparent. A studio, however, can be many kinds of place. The architecturally defined space, the classic sculptor’s or painter’s studio, is only one possibility. The computer memory, a shared office space, the street, the city, an exhibition, a café – all these and more can function, temporarily at least, as a studio, or can be defined as such.
In contrast to the course programme, the programme of events is without fees open to all those interested, being intended as a substantial contribution to the mediation of contemporary art and forms of discourse in Salzburg.
Lectures and discussions A new series of events has been developed for the topic of The studio. Five evening sessions in the new Salzburg University Unipark Nonntal, each consisting of two to four short lectures followed by public discussions, will deal with the five topics listed below. The lecturers are art historians, curators and artists from all over the world.
History and current relevance of the studio – Katharina Grosse, Jon Wood 20 July 2012, 6.30 p.m., Hörsaal 2, Erzabt-Klotz-Straße 1, Salzburg To start the series, the history of the studio, traced by curator and art historian Jon Wood with the help of studio photographs taken since the 1850s, will be contrasted with the today’s position, presented by artist Katharina Grosse. In 2007, she had a “studio machine” built by augustinundfrank architects in Berlin, where she lives and works.
Moderation: Hildegund Amanshauser
The city is our “factory” – Shaina Anand/Ashok Sukumaran, Niels Boeing, Charlotte Cullinan, Christoph Schäfer 25 July 21012, 6.30 p.m., Hörsaal 2, Erzabt-Klotz-Straße 1, Salzburg Here the questions concern the relation between city, artist and production, and what has changed in the post-industrial, digital age. How does the city change? What influences its relation with the artist? Are new places of collective production really a model for the future?
Moderation: Hildegund Amanshauser
Political interventions and working in collectives – Tania Bruguera, Jörg Franzbecker, Voina, What, How & for Whom 27 July 2012, 6.30 p.m., Hörsaal 2, Erzabt-Klotz-Straße 1, Salzburg The question of site, function and structure of studios entails the question of artistic production. What persons, in what functions or roles, are involved in the creation of a work? What form does the work take? Participants will discuss work in collectives, interdisciplinary work, dissolution of roles (we speak of “cultural producers” now, rather than of artists, curators, etc.), participation and artistic work as collective knowledge production.
Moderation: Helmut Draxler
The global/local studio – Christoph Draeger, Jens Hoffmann, Bojana Pejic, Bisi Silva 7 August 2012, 6.30 p.m., Hörsaal 2, Erzabt-Klotz-Straße 1, Salzburg The age of globalisation raises the question of the conditions of artistic production the world over, what the regional differences are, and how artists react to these. The discussion will look at the field of tension between “local” and “global”, which concerns any artistic production intended as supra-regional.
Moderation: Georg Schöllhammer
Getting out of the (traditional) studio – Wouter Davidts, Christian Jankowski, Philip Ursprung, Carey Young 21 August 2012, 6.30 p.m., Hörsaal 2, Erzabt-Klotz-Straße 1, Salzburg Since the modern movement, artists have increasingly been taking over new spaces as their (post-)studio – media, landscape, museums, public space. Works are conceived as site-specific, their content relating directly to their location.
Thus Christian Jankowski made a television studio or a church his studio, “cleaned up” Nam June Paik’s studio in the museum dedicated to him in Korea, and in her work Everything you’ve heard is wrong (1999) Carey Young made Speakers’ Corner in London the scene of her production.
Moderation: Raimar Stange.
