Rupert Academy

Alternative Education program: March–September 2018

Residency program: July–December

Rupert’s Alternative Education Program aims to combine self-directed education, interdisciplinary exchange and professional development. It is a resource aimed at creating opportunities for exchange between thinkers and creative practitioners from all over the world, and seeks to facilitate the production of individual projects, including artworks, exhibitions, publications and institutions. The program consists of regular lectures, workshops, events and studio visits with local and international guests.

Every edition of the Program begins anew, that is to say—it is always divergent from its past iterations. We fine-tune our approach with each edition, exploring new modes of engagement and pedagogical formats. However, Program’s original aim remains: to help emerging artists to develop their practice in the framework of formal and informal exchanges between themselves, writers, art theorists, curators, scientists, international artists, and the public.

The 6th edition of the Alternative Education Program is curated by Adomas Narkevičius and joined by Joanna Warsza, Orit Gat, Jörg Heiser, Martha Kirszenbaum, Myriam Ben Salah, Fatos Üstek, Owen Griffiths, Laurynas Adomaitis and more local and international tutors (to be announced) who will provide mentorship, host talks, workshops, public events or engage participants in free-form conversations and discussions. The rest of the Program will be created by you—the participants.

We look forward to receiving your applications! And if you’re not an artist, a curator or a writer, please don’t be discouraged from applying. We would love to have you involved!

Program dates: March–September 2018
