Mode of study
Prerequisites and co-requisites
First part of the course will use different strategies to create connections between the students’ own artistic experience, the verbalisation and discussions of this experience, and contextualisation of the process.
It will be divided into two parts – the first investigating differing ways from experience to verbalisation and context, the second offering conceptual contexts to the process, and contemporary framing of the students’ practices.
