The main focus of the course is collage as an artistic principle. We will take a fresh perspective on this long-standing technique, to make it productive as a means of expressing contemporary living environments. Small-scale works or extensive installations can be used to alter reality and tell individual stories. The potential of reprography will be extended and conceptually exploited by the use of digital technologies. When drawings are combined with prints, whether self-made or ready-made, tensions result. We will explore this conflict potential. We join up with art history at the point where collage expresses political views or social criticism – but there will also be room for lyrical expression.

Besides individual work, a productive exchange of ideas should take place within the group. Exercises at the start of the course will help to find new approaches. There will be the opportunity to explore traditional printing techniques such as screen printing, etching and woodcut, and to use these techniques experimentally.
