FREE SCHOOL FOR ART THEORY AND PRAXIS - SERIES
Organized by Tranzit.hu

The school will function in the form of regular weekend seminars of max. 15 participants.

The goals of the Free School for Art Theory and Practice are:
- To examine the current phenomena of contemporary visual culture in artistic and curatorial practice;
- To enhance critical thinking and dialogue within the art field
- To define the role of art theory and art criticism, to analyse critical concepts and study the possibilities for their adaptation to different contexts
- To discuss the identity /role of the curator and the artist in an international context.
