( 18 ECTS Credits )

 Individual Artistic Work, 18 ECTS-credits and The Conditions of a Collaborative Practice, 18 ECTS-credits

This year KKH is offering two summer courses: Individual Artistic Work, 18 ECTS-credits led by Thomas Elovsson and the course
The Conditions of a Collaborative Practice, 18 ECTS-credits led by Emanuel Almborg and Olivia Plender. Both courses are full-time during the whole summer, June, 3 – August, 30 2019.

Individual Artistic Practice , 18 ECTS-credits

Based on an individual plan of study the student formulates a line of inquiry, processes, and theoretical aspects for the project the student will carry out during the course. The instruction is carried out in the form of an introductory seminar, tutorials and by the end of the course the students are presenting their work in an informal exhibition at KKH. After the projects have been presented, the group will get together for critical reflection on the individual projects and the work process.

The selection to the course is based on the proposal of an individual study plan which is part of the application. The assessment is made based on the proposed project’s feasability and expected quality.

The Conditions of a Collaborative Practice , 18 ECTS-credits

By using practical as well as theoretical methods, The Conditions of Collaborative Practice will explore how socially engaged collaborative contemporary practices in visual arts and film can find meaning in historical narratives and methods related to radical theatre, pedagogy and performance. Parallel to this there will be practical exercises and students will develop collaborative projects as a group and reflect upon the conditions of a collective practice.

Instruction will mainly be concentrated to three weeks of seminars and workshops. Throughout the course students will work together in groups on a collaborative project that will emerge through experimentation during the first week of seminars and workshops. In between seminar weeks students will be given individual tutorials on site or through distance learning. After the first week of seminars and workshops students will have the opportunity to develop the collaborative projects together with one or several partners outside the Institute. The course will conclude with the third week of seminars and workshops, during which final reports will be made on the collaborative projects in relation to the questions framing the course in the form of a critical group reflection.

Selection is made based on a personal letter where the applicant describes his or her artistic work and the motivation for investigating collaborative methods. Assessment is based on the quality of the artstic practice and its relevance for the subject of the course.
