Fine Arts - In Situ

In Situ³ is a multidimensional and multidisciplinary trajectory (of the specialization Fine Arts), that emphasises two principles; the specific situation and the individual approach. The students investigate various sites, their historic, social and aesthetic context and experiment with various materials and techniques in order to respond as an artist to the circumstances at hand.

The core of the trajectory connects the understanding of an environment, its relation to the artwork and the artist's position. We underline the element of play and dialogue between these elements and parameters, encourage adventurous research and even support failure. With trial and error, you develop insights and skills. You share your passion, worries and fears as much as your inspiration and joy, which leads to unpredictable, personal and moving experiments and results.

Besides the individual studio practice the semesters are structured by assignments, which focus on site specificity, addressing a range from the urban to the natural landscape and the architectural context on either a fictive or a real level. We encourage formal and material research and the exploration of perception, which addresses the individual and its body.
