Modules with continuous application:
Independent Publishing Collectives
MATERIAL | ONGOING, ZURICH
Apprenticeship in real life setting: Self-publishing or Independent-publishing: MATERIAL is specialized in publications without the involvement of an established publisher. The author therefore controls the entire process, including the design of the cover, the number of copies, the interior, the distribution, the marketing and public relations. Self-publishing is not limited to books, but includes pamphlets, brochures and fanzines, as well. The quailty of these works varies considerably. MATERIAL also offers space for other forms of art (performances, concerts, workshops and exibitions).
The duration of the apprenticeship (1—6 months) depends on how many (E)CTS you choose. For further information please clickhere.
Art Led Participatory Processes
Jay Koh | ONGOING, EAST ASIA and CU-HAVANA
This module introduces participants through a brief history of artists working in community contexts. It begins with the avant-garde, which emerged out from the modernist trajectory, moving forward into explorations of progressive movements as artists began working outside of studio and gallery spaces, and turning into public participatory, socially engaged and community art practices. The module examines some key differences between works coming out of this trajectory with those that have evolved from the democratisation processes after World War 2.
