This course has neither a prescribed theme nor an umbrella concept. The focus is on the individual self: starting here, with one foot set firmly in the past, with the other foot you should tread new territory – intuitively, following inspiration, without needing to rely on concepts such as “abstraction” or “figuration”. What interests me is art without words. The aim is to develop a personal language irreplaceable by any other.

Starting with the determination of a status quo and a conversation on aspiration and potential fields of development, students are encouraged to withdraw into themselves to work, to reflect and to exchange ideas. The aim is to familiarise yourself with your own work and working method so far as to enable gradual distancing and further development. The expansion of the terrain depends on the knowledge of what already exists.

All classic painting and drawing techniques are welcome. The prerequisite is process-oriented open-mindedness towards calling in question your own working method. This process will be initiated in one-to-one conversations and implemented in the work.
