Teaching and learning methods

The seminars are an important shared academic platform for the students, where the development of their individual master's projects is a recurring topic of discussion. The communal discussions generate the study progression. The seminars will alternate between lectures and workshops including exhibition histories, writing and textual analysis, the role of the curator, legal issues, as well as project management and production. Different ways of staging exhibitions and topics pertaining installation are also discussed in plenary sessions.

As a rule, four seminars will be held per semester, at least three of which will be indepth studies of contexts. The purpose is to be immersed in a local context to see different types of exhibitions, exhibition venues and institutions, and to meet curators and artists, as well as building networks.
