Visual Arts

Dear friends of the Neuburg Summer Academy,
This year’s course program includes a number of innovations for visual arts. First, there are four new teaching artists. Furthermore, our team developed new course concepts which replenish the established offer of the two-dimensional and three-dimensional areas grahic reproduction and painting, printing, sculpture and object. Hence, this year we can offer a course in the area of photography, film and video. Additionally, there are two courses for cross-media work. The aims of these courses are to bridge the typical divide between drawing, photography and sculpture and to offer cross-border working.
The aim of all courses is to address, to promote and to develop individual interests and strengths of the participants. During the courses, our lecturers will offer freedom and support for continuing existing projects, developing new ideas and approaches, and experimenting with new techniques or strategies. Therefore, all courses are open for beginners and persons who have already gained experiences in the corresponding working fields. These courses are also suitable for preparing for entrance examination at an art academy or university of art. With this in mind, we are looking forward to registrations of different age groups and different professional groups, as this unique mixture unfolds the strengths of the Summer Academy by  transmitting and dealing with arts and enthusiasm for arts.

Warm regards,
Goda Plaum
Artistic director of visual arts

“Art is beautiful, but requires a lot of work” (quote from Karl Valentin)
And one question always remains: what are the characteristics of a panel painting / mural painting/ stereoscopic picture in order to become a good image, and how can my work be developed according to my mind? In my course, you will be able to work picturesquely in an intensely practical manner and you will gain new impulses for your creativity. This course is directed at artists who want to paint and look for artistic exchange. I will provide opportunities to consider images precisely and with a fresh view, to share texts, movies, music and other inspirations, to train observation and perception, and of course to reflect one’s own painting development. It can be painted in acrylic, oil and egg tempera on different formats and picture carriers. Upon request, there can be an offer for stretching and preparing canvas and for basic information about composition, perspective and colour theory.

This course is aimed at persons interested in developing current projects in the area of film and video art or at persons seeking the final impulse for developing an idea into practise. Knowledge is not as important as delight in experimentation. Depending on group tendency or needs, we develop first drafts or we focus on required aspects. Furthermore, scenic motifs and animated sequences of all kinds are possible. Freed of dogmas, our starting basis will lie on experimenting with all possibilities concerning photography and moving-image: scenic-narrative, realistic, abstract, experimental. We deal with the language of images which includes rules and conventions of composition and theory of colours, and narrative techniques in order to achieve attention and effect. All participants need their own camera and ideally their own laptop or similar device for digital editing. Upon request, I am pleased to recommend programs (open source / commercial).

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.

My approach consists of drawings, pictures, photos, video recordings and own texts which are either unfinished or do not have an effect on the proper place. We breathe new life into them developing them further. Fears of contacts and blockades disappear by extending the medium. Perhaps a new process or form is needed in order to keep on working on the original ones. The new medium probably helps to realize that you were too restricted and that there are other forms which are more fun or which suit you better. What could you do with your own drawings or the many photos lying in a box or waiting on your hard disk? Perhaps there will be a new composition and connection with other materials, memories and images. I will offer a beamer and a camera so that we are able to experiment with projections, sound and light. Furthermore, I will provide a scanner and a printer (black and white).

During this course, we will explore the medium of printing on a practical and theoretical level. The practical work will be complemented by individual and group discussions in order to develop and analyse your own working process trying to find your style. Besides, we focus on theoretical aspects of printing techniques and their expandability, various printing artists and other related topics. Relief printing, flat printing of offset plates and gravure printing (dry point) are available on the printing presses. Furthermore, big handmade prints, monotypes, frottages and digital printing techniques are possible (lithography / stone printing is only available under suitable climate conditions and only for participants who are familiar with the technique). During my studies with different printing techniques and their unconventional use, large format prints and lots of prints in sculptural form and conceptual background have resulted. I would like to incorporate my practical experiences and my theoretical knowledge into this course. A two-week booking is desirable.

Our focus lies on developing your own picture concepts. Using a holistic approach, we examine and reveal taken decisions as well as possibilities and strategies of realisation. These reflections and findings form a flexible and still stable basis on which your own pictorial work can be developed in different directions. A special focus lies on attentiveness during the artistic process which is accompanied and supported by individual and group discussions about your own working and by analysis of visual positions of other artists. Collective discussions about each individual context will lead to expressions and correspondences in colour, form and material. Necessary requirements for this course are years of experience in artistic practice and knowledge of painting techniques. A two-week booking is desirable.

This course provides space for diverse, three-dimensional working with classic materials (i.e. metal, clay, paper, plaster, wood, no stone processing) and it broadens the view for other surprising materials and strategies. Every day there is an offer to take part in a little, playful practical exercise of three-dimensional thinking. Inspired by works of contemporary artists, there are little “morning exercises” which should challenge the participants to discover together new material and space. These exercises will help to develop discovering new possibilities for your own individual work and to learn from the ideas and strategies of others. The focus will lie on developing and realising individual ideas – figurative, abstract or installative. This course is suitable for persons who have already gained experience in three-dimensional designing as well as for beginners who want to gain basic knowledge.

How do I find my own picture language? In order to respond to this question, I would like to provide you a path with a wide range of exercises for different techniques of painting, drawing and printing. Concrete subjects will be graphically realised and implemented in acryl painting. Furthermore, you will get the chance to discover printing techniques like monotype or dry point etching. In the morning, there will be further exercises for the science of colour and composition. In the afternoon, free working is at the focus.
The variety of suggestions will give you the opportunity to discover your strengths and preferences, to test them in change of techniques in order to develop your own pictorial language.
This course is suitable for beginners and advanced students.
