Language of instruction
Students will develop the ability to reflect on their own work in a broader context. Apart from the mandatory studio meetings, consultations, analysis of students' major projects and semestrial work (archive and appropriation), students should try the work as a curator and explore opportunities to present their art works. Students must find the consultants for the master thesis.
Topic of semestrial work might change during the process.
Analysis, presentation and contextualization of students' own work or found material.
