Taking a Position: Art & Writing
This course is part of the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts's 2023 programme.
Open to anyone interested in fine arts
In ‘Taking a Position: Art & Writing’ students will be introduced to the various approaches to writing that co-exist in the artworld: art criticism and art history, ‘think pieces’, poetry, catalogue essays, creative non-fiction, magazine and newspaper journalism, and press releases. As the title of the course implies, students will learn to identify what kind of art writer they want to be and who their intended audience is; how to shape an argument and translate a work of art into a language that is clear, engaging and original. Students will also receive guidance, if relevant, about how to make a living as a professional writer: from pitching ideas to working with an editor and promoting their work via social media.
