Diversity, quality, internationality and multilingualism – literally and figuratively – mark the intensive working atmosphere of the Summer Academy in Salzburg/Austria, which combines art production, discourse and presentation. Individual support for the development of each student is just as important as cooperation within the group.
Focus on painting
Particular focus this year is on painting. There are seven classes working exclusively or partly in this medium (Sonia Abian, Lucy McKenzie, Ulrica Lundberg, Rebecca Morris, Katrin Plavcak, Dierk Schmidt, Christina Zurfluh). Ulrica Lundberg and Lucy McKenzie concentrate specifically on painting techniques: Lundberg’s course, entitled Still Life, will study questions of representation; McKenzie’s Decorative Painting Studio offers an introduction to traditional techniques such as trompe l’œil, repeat pattern, stencilling, wood graining and marbling.
Four classes deal with drawing, graphic arts and collage: Martin Schmidl, Dan and Lia Perjovschi, Krystyna Piotrowska, and Ines Doujak. The two classes directed by Liliana Moro and Marko Lulic are devoted to sculpture, objects and space. The Stone Sculpture Symposium is once again held in the Fürstenbrunn quarry, this year under Susanne Tunn and Knut Wold.
The photography classes are a further highlight of the 2010 Summer Academy. These will be directed by the Australian artist Destiny Deacon and the distinguished Austrian photographer Elfie Semotan together with Roberto Ohrt, the writer and art historian known primarily for his pioneering research into the Situationists.
The Landscape Architecture class will be directed by Véronique Faucheur (urbanist) and Marc Pouzol (gardener and landscape architect), from atelier le balto in Berlin. The question is: Where’s the garden? The aim is to cultivate the eye, in the search for site and realisation of the garden. Here the Perner Island is in many ways the perfect location; it was for many years the «nursery-garden» for the employees in the salt-works. Manuel Vilhena returns to offer Jewellery and other stories.
