• Summer semester 

    3. - 24. March 2016



    We are living in the world of extremely fast developing technology, especially in the field of science. Daily comes diverse news of the possibilities to look deeper into the micro cosmos of our environment. Our body is becoming an experimental realm, our mind and soul examined to the smallest particles. To these developments, artists can reflect with their ethical and emotional positions, give diverse perspectives and set some questions through their creative and intuitive capabilities.

    The workshop will give students possibilities to examine diverse artistic achievements on international level and develop their own concepts and ideas, either in the output format of written scenarios, or producing short video works (sketches). The workshop includes a visit to the scientific Departments at the University of Rijeka, talking to scientists and getting introduced to the newest technologies of bio- and other sciences.

    There will be also possibilities for students' production of photo and video documentation at one of the Academy's post-production studios. At the end of the course, students will finish their works at home institutions and present the final version of their experimental research online, at local semester shows etc. Credit value of the course is 3 or 4 ECTS, depending on the MAP study programme context, or the student's individual local curriculum context.

  • The course aims at (repeatedly) constructing the narrative maps of the port town of Komiža on the island of Vis in Croatia – yet not from the schemata of the commonplace but rather out of the local inventive and open-ended analogies, paradigm-elisions, puns, conceits: out of dream echoes or deformations and satirical distortions of the quotidian. Through the course, the students will perform, inter-mediate and (re)formulate Komiža’s narrative topology by combining the narrative character of identity of Komižans with the urban, architectural, natural and economic reality of the place.

    As the second edition of Rijeka Site-specific mobility we are proposing specific location that reflects multiple dimensions of time, suggests numerous potential narratives and variety of approaches to the topic of site and its specific context. This year's location is a historical ship, Yugoslav Navy yacht Galeb. After its rich and tormentous history the ship is now located in Rijeka harbour with a perspective to become a museum/monument.


    Starting from a location rich in historical, political and spatial terms, students are invited to develop site-specific works (installations, light interventions, performances) in dialogue and relation to the ship Galeb.
