Course Content (Syllabus)
Acting in situ (2018-19) Choose a site; interior, exterior, built up or untouched. For example, your grandmother’s room, a vacant shop in a specific neighbourhood, the tax office, your professor’s office, the plot your uncle cultivates with cotton, the lake of your native town, a more or less enchanting landscape, a bush or a monument’s wall used as a public toilet by people forced to stay outside for long hours (refugees, immigrants, homeless ecc), the railway station, the airport, the port, a bus, the White Tower, the archaeological museum, the museum of Byzantine culture, the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, an apartment building, its lobby, its terrace or its basement, a central square, a monument, a garbage dump, an abandoned factory, a working factory, a church, an archaeological excavation, a demolition site, a hole left by the removal of a tree.. Identify the element that drove you in your choice, whether it was a question of the site’s function, its morphology (volume, materials ecc), the memory it embodies, a special personal relationship you mighthave with it, its sociological parameters, a climatic peculiarity (intense sunshine or gushes of wind), genius loci.. Suggest a smaller or larger scale artistic project, explaining your intentions and the direction of your intervention. For example, whether you are enhancing or nullifying the identity of the site, or it is a response relative to the perception of the space by the viewer, whether you are only taking into account the site’s phenomenology (colours, relationships between surfaces or volumes, materials, geometries, sense of verticality or orizontality, textures), or its specific social character (the site’s use and possible ties to a certain community and its formal rituals, whether it is a site of personal remembering or collective historic memory ecc) Note: All visual arts’ media are allowed (color, volume, video, sound, performance, archival research, ecc
