Context & Installation

Tutor: Edwin Zwakman

My art classes are based on multidisciplinary education. During the studies, I help students to develop their visual and artistic qualities. Students go through a deep psychological thinking transformation. I use cognitive visual arts as an instrument to learn how to still our minds through art making in different media. Doing so we are able to create a bridge between art, concept, theory and presentation. I introduce students to a successive series of visual experiments aimed at improved conceptualism in the depiction of our world, I call this “making and matching.” I would also discuss contributions made by artists like Basquiat, Wilfredo Lam, Duchamp and Bas Jan Ader.

Critical Practice

Tutor: James Beckett

“Door het gemaakte in relatie te brengen tot iets anders, een omgeving een ander ding, een ander mens, breidt de betekenis zich uit en herpositioneert zich in ander contexten, belangengebieden en invloedssferen. Dan is kunst niet alleen het gevolg van individuele actie, maar ook iets dat kennis produceert over de sociale en culturele dynamiek waarbinnen zij circuleert”. —Richard Sennett

Conceptual Art

Tutor: Vincent Vulsma

Conceptual art investigates the conditions of art as being art. Material compositions of artworks are not limited by their physical form. It is about immaterial matters, such as language, relations, conditions of (re)presentation and distribution.

Art & Design

Tutor: Hester Oerlemans

Kunst & Ontwerp heeft grofweg te maken met alles dat zich afspeelt tussen idee en uitvoering; het uitzoeken van welke verschillende uitvoeringen er mogelijk zijn, het maken van schetsen, maquettes of prototypen, het doen van grondig materiaalonderzoek en het anticiperen en inspelen op de uiteindelijke presentatiewijze en -context.

Crafts & Materials

Tutor: Gijs Assmann

The main focus is the making process. The tutor group is trying to resolve the separation between crafts and the intellectual. The making process is research, depth and translation of an idea into a concept, more then it is a production process. It is to say that it is about translating language to image, or even better: thinking with your hands.

Facts & Fiction

Tutor: Korrie Besems

Post production, reframing, appropriation and recycling images are generating new conceptual frameworks, which are contributing to new and hybrid media.

Photography, film and text are the product of cultural research. Contradictions such as real/fake, facts/fiction and documentary/staged are no longer oppress but are food for thought. Trying to generate new visual experiences which are closing the gap between private and public, art and design. This tutor group demands a critical and engaged attitude towards ones own work and of one other.

Performance

Tutor: Alicia Framis

Perfomance art combines theater, music with values and different ways of visual arts
