KF-101-1 Visual art in context
The course will focus on various aspects related to site-specific art. The students will gain experience with different sites and contexts linked to these: The physical, phenomenological or cultural site, sites related to community involvement and sites as a part of an ecologically connected totality.
During the course, site-specific problems and expressions will be highlighted. Themes regarding art in public spaces and socially engaged art forms will also be discussed. Site-specific art can often be of a temporary character, and use of digital tools such as photography and film will be suitable methods of documenting and presenting the students work. The course will implement writing workshop related to text production within various genres. A variety of exhibition productions and mediation strategies will be a part of the course.
The course is based on teaching in- and outside of workshops, as well as lectures and counselling, both individually and in groups.
