Art + Critique: Critical & Contextual Studies in Art Practice Online Course

Share

Type:

Category:

Description: 

This course integrates practice and theory in a comprehensive programme that emphasises critical inquiry in art practice. The curriculum will help you develop your practice and research in a series of lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and off-site visits.

The course addresses our concepts of art, how they are being transformed and the problems of making art in the broader context of social conflict. The curriculum surveys the histories and discourses of contemporary art, demystifies the art world and provides multiple entry points into critical theory. The programme fosters collaborative study and provides practical tools in workshops and group feedback sessions.

By the end of the course participants will have a critical awareness of contemporary art, with a road map and toolbox of resources for their continuing practice and the confidence to pursue it independently. The course is open to everyone but it is particularly suited to those who have a background in art and wish to develop their practice.

TALLER Oh! Bacteria Oh!: FERMENTACIONES COMO UNA APROXIMACIÓN RADICAL A LA ECOLOGIA-DE-HIDROCUERPXS HUMANOS Y NO-HUMANOS

FIBRAS MICROBIANAS – SIMBIOSIS Y LAS PROPRIEDADES DE LA MATERIA
En la Primavera de 2015, Joana Moher (AOUCH.Lab) empezó a explorar intuitivamente las fermentaciones, como un intento didáctico experimental de intersección entre ciencia y alquimia, botánica y soberanía alimentar, comprometida en la búsqueda de materiales biodegradables y biomiméticos, quizás kinestésicos hacia una nueva incisión textil. Lo que a la partida era solamente generar una materia prima, con el pasar del tiempo se transformó en preservar un jardín, lleno de relaciones simbióticas interespecie entre humanos y criaturas no-humanas, multidisciplinar y que ha coevolucionado hacia un taller. Donde y con las fermentaciones, en particular a través de la Kombucha, se puede acompañar procesos y practicas metabólicas, ecológicas y biomatéricas, complejas de pequeñas formas de vida donde los humanos al final son simples colaboradorxs. El objetivo de este experimento domestico, de este taller es compartir recíprocamente esas herramientas y explorar plásticamente la biomateria-viva y sus propiedades y intersecciones como prima-matter hacia una creación plástica, textil o performativa o transdisciplinar.

LAS PROPRIEDADES DE LA MATERIA
ECUACIÓN a través del TIEMPO

[Kombucha Tea + Azúcar+ FERMENTACIÓN] = Scoby Fungi- Hongo de Manchuria o Medysomyces Gisevil

[Scoby + Crecer/Preservar /Teñir+ Secar ] = Celulosis MICROBIAL /Cuero – Papel / Cuerpo Vegetal

Incisión Plástica = X

MENÚ Fermentación
Dado ser un taller totalmente experimental, de desarrollo de biomateriales y procesos propios existe una necesidad de una práctica presencial para iniciar un proceso de cultivo y transferencia de herramientas relativas a las propiedades de la materia e introducción a las técnicas de teñido, moldeado, secado, etc. Pasadas 3 semanas, es vital un acompañamiento presencial o en línea, para activar un nuevo ciclo de maduración y reforzar técnicas de preservación, teñido, moldeado, secado, etc hacia el desarrollo de la incisión plástica final transdisciplinar. Mediante los procesos y terminada las incisiones plásticas, quedaría abierta la propuesta de sincronizarnos en una fecha a coordinar con las necesidades creativas y de forma voluntaria, una exposición-performática de la materia e /o memoria gráfica final en formato Fanzine, en el Carbono Lab.

CONTENIDOS A EXPLORAR
+: fermentaciones, simbiosis y hidrocuerpxs
+: procesos de cultivo y preservación
+: propiedades de la biomateria
+: procesos de teñido y botánica digestiva
+: procesos de secado
+: herramientas hacia una incisión

Description: 

Are you an artist or a creative practitioner who is concerned with the cultural impact of the ecological emergency? Do you make work that centres on environmental and social concerns? Would you like to develop a deeper artistic engagement with these inevitably entangled key concerns?

The BCA Summer Academy is a new initiative, placing ecoliteracy and agency for ecosocial justice in the context of Ireland and beyond at the centre of an immersive three-week program. Weekly lectures and discussions will guide the trajectory of the programme with participants co-creating the necessary discursive space to foster a supportive community of peer exchange and enquiry.

Focusing on the studio, immersion in the protected limestone karst landscape of the Burren and collective activities, the Summer Academy combines artistic practice with seminars and workshops aimed at expanding creative discourse on how to best respond to the unprecedented and urgent challenges we all face.

The Summer Academy offers participants large scale studio spaces on the BCA campus in which to develop research and produce new work. Visiting Artist lectures and seminars take place each week alongside studio visits by Summer Academy Lecturers. Workshops include, but are not limited to, Walking, Collaboration & Foraging. Fieldtrips will also involve key BCA partners Burren Beo and the Burren GeoPark, who manage stewardship of the Burren as a protected environment.

Applications due by April 30, 2021
