Studium Generale – The art academy as a site of struggle

This semester’s Studium Generale is about conflicting worlds and the art academy as a site of struggle. On Wednesday 22 May, we will talk about how to deal with conflict in artistic practices and learn from personal experiences of conflict.

In the morning we will have an open discussion on the work of the three guests, Jonas Staal, Malkit Shoshan and Yazan Khalili, and your input requested by studium generale. The guests will talk with you about how they deal with conflict in their artistic practices. The morning programme will be moderated by Alexander Cromer.

After lunch (13:30), we start simultaneously in three spaces at the academy. We will have three breakout sessions, with our guests participating. The basis for these sessions will be a combination of what’s dealt with in the morning and how you and the guests participate.
