Weight Watchers: International Art Moves (IAM) Workshop

To watch weights, movements, developments on an international, political and social level. To see balances and monopols between governments, societies, single people. And the question, what are Arts able to reflect, to move, to change. Are Arts able at all to change something. Do artists have responsibility for society and if so, how do they deal with it in different cultures. And of course “Weight Watchers” is also an ironic hint to the ego-manic body movement.

In the latest IAM workshop, visiting lecturers Martin Müller and Anne Müller will mentor students to curate an international visual arts exhibition that is happening at “Kunstquartier Bethanien” in Berlin in January 2018. 5 out of the 20 students will be nominated after the workshop to participate in the setup of the exhibition.

Date: 21-25 August 2017

Time: 9:30 – 17:30 daily

Speakers: Martin Müller, Anne Müller

Venue: CVA408 Graphic Arts Studio

Quota: 20 AVA students / alumni
