This coming school year I will be teaching art history & theory classes in an art school. My students will be a heterogeneous group, some young (18 +), and some older. Many of them will use this two-year education as a preparation for later academy studies.
The main focus of the students is on practical training, my seminar will provide them with some basic contextual knowledge, and I will also do individual supervision.
I have given a lot of lectures on art theory and criticism at several universities before, but never had a continuous seminar like I am going to have this year.
I never planned to apply for a job like this, being very satisfied with my life as a freelance writer these last years, but now, in the middle of my preparations, I must say I’m really looking forward to the year to come.
I have studied art, literature and aesthetics for so many years, making it all comprehensible for newcomers is a real challenge, and I know that I for one will learn a lot from it!
