EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS MENTORSHIP
The objective of this course is to develop your own creative project and carry out a collective exhibition. It is divided into two blocks of 8 weeks each: in the first, we will work in-depth and collectively on the projects of each participant and we will learn and discuss topics of general interest. In the second, we will prepare a collective exhibition for the EXP.23 festival in Barcelona. The course has a total duration of 16 three-hour live meetings every two weeks via Zoom.
The first block corresponds purely to the mentorship of the student projects to see where they are and how they can be developed from an experimental point of view. At this point, we will work on questions focused on the message such as: what story does your project explain? What techniques are the most appropriate to communicate it? In addition, we will study contemporary and historical references that can enrich our view and we’ll also hold collective debates on each of the proposals.
The second block focuses on the products that we can generate from our projects (social networks, website, book, exhibitions, etc). Collectively, we will build a collaborative exhibition for the EXP.23 festival in Barcelona where will be exhibited at least one work by each participant. During these sessions, we will work on topics such as the role and work methodology of a curator, the importance of space and light when setting up an exhibition, how the materials and arrangement of elements collaborate in the construction of a message, the use of printing techniques, materials and work support, etc.
This course will be taught with a maximum of 12 participants to ensure personalized follow-up. We hope you can join this creative dialogue.
