2 Weeks – 5 courses – 50 Guests – 1 Berlin
Autocenter Summer Academy 2015 will take place in the renowned Berlin exhibition space in the very heart of Berlin. This year's program will once again offer participants a rich combination of practical and theoretical knowledge. A unique atmosphere will allow for formal critical and personal discussion with a wide selection of hand picked international experts drawn from all fields of art. In addition, the ACSA will provide new insights to the art world, its institutions, and its active discourse.
For ACSA 2015, a two-week program has been created. Participants can choose how long they wish to attend, and in turn select from two different week-long courses designed and run by internationally acclaimed artists. Each course has a maximum of 16 participants, which will give each student the opportunity to develop their artistic practice and theory over the course of the week. The course is set up to allow each student the maximum ability to converse and interact with their teacher – while at the same time being able to immerse themselves in one of the most exciting art scenes in the world.
In addition to the set course, each week’s schedule includes two lectures and an art-tour led by expert journalists, collectors and curators. The guided tours will enable personal studio visits and trips to galleries and art institutions. At the end of every week on Saturday evening a public presentation will be held in the Autocenter exhibition room.
For the second year in a row we are adding a two-week theory class. Art critic and author Jennifer Allen and architect and critic Thibaut de Ruyter will run it again together after it’s huge success in 2014. Together, with up to 15 participants, they will focus on theory, history and the actual process of exhibition making.
