Apply and join us at the international summer school for land and environmental art in the Swiss Alps!
Application and terms of participation can be found here
The third international Alps Art Academy will take place between June 25–July 4, 2020, in the Safiental (Grisons, Switzerland). Located in Tenna, 1650 meters above sea level, the summer school focuses on contemporary approaches to Land and Environmental Art by bringing them into a relationship with the Alpine landscape. We wish to create a platform of potentialities for the contemporary and future Land Art, which integrates not only natural landscape and the environment but also other “media” and the wider social context.
We encourage proposal submissions from artists working with landscape and the environment across genres and media, as well as from theoreticians, facilitators and curators engaged in research on the topic of Land Art. We welcome applications accompanied by a concrete concept that can be realized during the period of the summer school. The concepts should reflect the 2020 Alps Art Academy theme “ANALOG – DIGITAL.”
Program: Gathering circa thirty participants over a period of ten days, the Academy offers a rich program of workshops, seminars, field trips, artist talks and presentations, as well as a thematic symposium. Participants have the opportunity to explore what does it mean to create in, and interact with, the Alpine landscape and apply their experience in their work. Participants work together with international instructors who offer practical and theoretical mentoring. The Academy is linked to the Land Art Biennale Art Safiental (July 4–October 18, 2020) and offers an opportunity to present final projects
Instructors: Matthias Bildstein (AT), Les Frères Chapuisat (CH), Sally De Kunst (CH/BE), Fragmentin (CH), Gabriela Gerber / Lukas Bardill (CH), Hanna Hölling (UK), Richard Saxton (USA),Ella Tetrault (CAN), Lucie Tuma (CH) und weitere Gäste.
