Situation Laboratory (2012- )
Situation Lab is a practice-oriented intensive course. The overall aim of the course is to enable the students to develop their own artistic practice by exposing it to a variety of other experimental practices and perspectives. This spring, the emphasis will be on embodied, relational and performative techniques, as well as on the interrelations between human and nonhuman entities. We will be working both in the studio as well as outside in various locations.
Altogether, the course consists of nine daylong sessions. Each of the first six sessions focuses on a specific theme that will be explored through a series of exercises and tasks. The themes and the composition of the sessions are modified according to the students’ personal and artistic interests.
