This course is part of the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts's 2020 programme.
Louisa Elderton and Klaus Speidel
open to anyone interested
Are you an artist integrating writing into your practice? An art critic, art historian or journalist writing about art? A curator or gallerist articulating the intricacies of an artist’s practice? You would like to try writing professionally? Or you're an art enthusiast keen to experiment with writing? This course creates a space where you can concentrate exclusively on writing, with support and guidance from experts with more than twenty years of art world experience.
After a sound introduction into writing about art, the focus will be on the practice of writing and editing. We will examine different forms of art writing, from the Renaissance up to the present day, and discuss different approaches. We examine how form, style, voice and narrative can be used to different effect, and experiment with what we have learned. You choose the direction you wish to take. The course will give you basic tools and precepts to develop your own style of writing.
