Learning outcomes of the course unit

Man and technology, production, utopia, filter bubbles, educational turn, participatory practice, excursion, future of work

Each student consistently searches for the assignment himself. Defining one's own interests, authentic problems, unrepeatable sensitivity is the basis of the work of the artist, the art student is supported in this effort by the studio team. The key moment in each semester is the realization of the vacuum, the absence of the assignment, the need to find in one's own experience or interest one's own problem, from which the assignment will become further research.

The work can take various forms: reading, writing, observing, thinking, collecting (textual, visual, physical) material, photographing, filming, working with a series of photographs, editing video, working in a 3D program, telephoning, installing ...

Assessment methods and criteria

Research, work and cloud

Students are led to artistic research as a source of topics and a depth of understanding of a specific problem. Artistic research is based on finding information and inspiration sources, searching for details as well as general context. Artistic research is also a work process based on constant self-education, in the environment of the studio, this education is naturally applicable to the entire team.

In the studio, we are looking for ways to realize and grasp the presence. The process is more important in education than a partial result. The aim of the studio debate is to teach students to talk about unfinished projects, to admit the possibility to change part of their work on the basis of feedback, not to focus on a specific idea of the result.

The work means active dealing with the current project. The work can take various forms: reading, writing, observing, thinking, collecting (textual, visual, physical) material, photographing, filming, working with a series of photographs, editing video, working in a 3D program, telephoning, installing ...

Cloud is the memory of the studio. Resources, literature, ideas, links that will be heard at the studio meeting are recorded in the cloud, where they remain available.
