Sculpture (sculpture/ installation/ spatial conception)
Sculpture includes all three-dimensional artistic work that is cast, molded, screwed, cut or glued, etc., and is defined in a certain relationship to the space surrounding it. The body can also be understood as a material.
The spatial relation is determinant for the distinction of what “sculpture” can be and is reflected in the terms of “sculpture/ installation/ spatial conception”.
The everyday study life
The student’s own practical work and intensive search for what art can be form the center of the course. Excellent workplaces are available for this purpose in the new studios in Knooper Weg and in the Arfrade workshop hall.
Every week the class meets. Criteria and standards for art develop through discussion and close observation.
Guests and excursions broaden the horizon beyond the university.
Technically, almost anything is possible. Exhibitions put the “research laboratory” of study on stage.
Space is always present as a condition of art. It is a focus in our teaching area to learn to understand the change in the various ways of looking at space, to make it visible and experienceable in one’s own artistic works from the ground up and experimentally.
The project room serves this purpose, where works with space are presented regularly on Wednesday evenings.
