3 Weeks – 7 courses – 100 Guests – 1 Berlin

ACSA 2015 will be taking place in the renowned Berlin exhibition space Autocenter in the very heart of Berlin. This year's program will offer participants a rich combination of practical and theoretical knowledge in a wonderful atmosphere and setting, and in personal encounter and discussion with a wide selection of international experts drawn from all fields of the arts. In addition, the ACSA will provide manifold insights into the art world, its institutions and its discourses.

For ACSA 2015, a three-week program has been drawn up. Participants can choose how long they wish to attend, and select from two weekly courses designed and run by international artists. In each week-long course, a maximum of 17 participants will have the opportunity to develop their artistic practice and theory in interchange and interaction with their teacher – while at the same time being able to immerse themselves in one of the most exciting city art scenes in the world.

In addition to courses, each week’s schedule includes three lectures and an art-tour in the company of experts, journalists, collectors and curators. The guided tours will enable visits to studios, galleries and art institutions and to the various other stunning sites Berlin has to offer. At the end of every week, on Saturday evening a public presentation will be held in Autocenter.

For the second time we are adding a two-week theory class (1st and 2nd week) this year. This course is set up by critic and author Jennifer Allen and architect and critic Thibaut de Ruyter. Together with up to 15 participants they will focus on theory, history and the actual process of exibition making.
