Admission requirements

There are no admission requirements for this course.

Apply by registering for the course in Osiris or uSis.

The course is intended for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year BA students from all departments of the KABK. The course also welcomes students from Leiden University.

A maximum of 15 students in total (Leiden University and KABK) can participate in the programme.
The course will be taught in English.

Description

Is an exhibition a mere platform for presenting an artwork? Or is it an intrinsic part of the creative process? Where lies the difference and what are the implications of these different positions for the artist’s re-search process and artistic practice? How do various curatorial roles re-late to notions of artistic autonomy? Why do artists make exhibitions anyway?

This interdisciplinary course offers students practical and theoretical knowledge and understanding of exhibition making in general, and of the potentialities of exhibition making in relation to their own artistic practice in particular.

The exhibition(s) will take place in various spaces at The Royal Academy (such as galleries, presentation and project spaces, corridors, courtyards and studio spaces) and possibly outside the academy.

According to their individual preferences and group dynamics, students can choose to make:

  • a group exhibition and/or

  • solo exhibitions and/or

  • duo-collaborations and/or

  • exhibitions in public spaces and/or

  • online exhibitions.

Students will (re-)make and show new work, critically reflect on this process as well as investigate the possibilities of an exhibition as a framework for research, experiment and (re-)presentation. Special at-tention will be given to the possibilities of artistic innovation based on Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of the rhizome.
