INTERNATIONAL COURSE IN CONTEMPORARY ART

15.09-05.10 2003

****************************************************************************
***************

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO THE PUBLIC EVENTS OF OUR NEW
PROGRAMME IN TIHANY

The course focuses on helping artists to reach a heightened understanding of
their
work in a wider artistic, cultural and theoretical context. Our aim is to
encourage and
develop the production of new works, ideas and concepts through giving
access to a
tutorial, seminar and workshop programme from an international field of
teaching
staff drawn from Goldsmiths College, London, the Hungarian Academy of Fine
Arts,
Budapest as well as invited internationally renowned artists. The
International Course
in Contemporary Art is a collaborative research initiative between the
Visual Arts
Department at Goldsmiths College and the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts.
Lecturers from both universities have the opportunity to develop their
research
through an artist-in-residency programme, that can involve studio practice,
curating,
exhibiting and academic writing as well as being key figures of the teaching
team in
Tihany. This new relationship is hoped to continue and develop through
communication and debate into something new, that is beneficial for
students, tutors
and lecturers.
