People who are interested in freedom, true freedom, not only to be able to speak vulgarly in public, must first with the help of style, change content. If the style is masterful, fluent and developed, if changeable and the summit as well, may be raised above the content created by snatches of color, electricity and light. Content is that which man keeps in his thoughts and is not flaunted.
This studio is intended for students whoch begin with a technical image and work on its transfer to other media. This freely moves among installation, object and site-specific projects. Emphasis is placed on the use of form and material as the bearer of idea.
The studio is designed as an open platform which the students bring their topics and inspirational sources, define the topic, are critiqued and learn to work with boundaries and limits such as a vital part. The take part on constructive criticism and implement their work with an awareness of its cultural and historical context.
