Everything can be art, BUT art cannot be everything. We need challenges of the real life in order to meet them artistically. Everything can be art: shopping lists, crosswords, old child’s drawings, city maps, fake eye lashes, construction plans… simply everything! It only depends on how we include the things into the artistical process and which issue we want to deal with. In this course, we use all things collected in our households and which are of no use any longer but are not to simply thrown away. This “stuff” can be reason, motive or material for pictorial working as it is analysed, changed, arranged or associated becoming meaningful. In this course, pictorial working is not limited to one technique or medium but crosses such borders so that every participant is accompanied to achieve his or her best possible realisation of his or her pictorial idea. We approach objects differently and create new connections at the same time. This course is suitable for beginners and advanced students.
