Transart Institute seeks theory faculty and summer workshop proposals – deadline 1 November 2008

Transart Institute seeks theory faculty

to teach one interdisciplinary seminar in the Low Residency MFA Program for one week, July/August 2009 in Berlin and accompany ten students’ research projects through the academic year via email and Skype. Seminars are not intended to survey a subject or provide complete media studies, philosophy or art history background but are rather to be an intensive exploration of a particular topic. They give students an opportunity to gain experience in articulating, testing and challenging current ideas, engaging in dialogues and discussions, making connections to their own work and it’s place in the world, and having the opportunity to be guided through a topic or area of research before they initiate their own research to inform their studio project in the semesters ahead. The institute is especially interested in expanding diversity in its faculty and is looking for proposals from the fields of contemporary art, non-european art and post-colonialism.

Deadline for submissions: November 1, 2008

Transart Institute seeks summer workshop proposals

from artists to teach a 20 unit interdisciplinary creative workshop and give critiques in a low-residency MFA Program for one week, July 2009 in Berlin. Workshops address development of artistic praxis rather than training in certain media or authoring tools, challenging students to think conceptually and work creatively in new ways. Students respond to workshop assignments in whatever media they wish, working independently on projects and assignments between classes.
