This course is an introduction to intermedia studio work creating art through visual experimentation focused on abstract forms with painting as the starting point. In this course we will try out the principles of experimental art from the 1960's up until today, examining such categories as dripping, stencil art, lettrism, post-surrealism, op-art, new geometric abstraction, pointillism, orphism, fauvism and many more. 

 

Abstraction in all its forms is going to play an important role across the various media. Abstract compositions are everywhere, literally. You can just have a look around you, or go deeper to the images of micro or macro cosmos. 

 

Abstraction can be an illustration of something real, or a process, principle or analysis. It can also be just pure joy of creating, free of any contact to reality. 

There are many different techniques you can use, many forms of which can appear - painting, drawing, collage, video, installation....
 

Students will be confronted with artistic practice while getting to know the theory of contemporary art, attending exhibitions, and participating in an end of course collective exhibition. They are given motivation tasks, but mostly create their own visions.
