it takes a community to raise an artist
An important goal of the *foundationClass is to support you in reconstructing (lost) works, images, materials, portfolios and documents and to create a strong portfolio for the application to a German art or design university. The study programme consists of lectures, workshops and excursions led by professional artists, designers, academics and activists who have themselves or their families migrated to Germany. Together with you, we want to formulate art histories that include the global South/East and your experiences without using labels like “refugee” or “migrant”. In the *foundationClass, we focus on solidary encounters and learning and teaching at eye level.
The *foundationClass wants to create a critical place within the weißensee kunsthochschule, where knowledge and artistic and design practices are not consumed, but dominant views are questioned. The *foundationClass is embedded in the foundation year department at the weissensee school of art, berlin. We strive for collective processes, make exhibitions and inscribe ourselves from the margins of society into the Western white art and design landscape.
DO YOU WANT TO APPLY? Thank you for your interest in *foundationClass! Please check out the APPLY site and send us your applications until October 9th 2022. The new cycle will begin October 17th!
