ART TALK: Essential English for the Art World – Johanna Thompson
November 14, 2016 von 11 am - 3 pm

Talking about your work is difficult enough in your native language, but in an increasingly globalized art world being able to represent yourself well in English has become imperative.
In this workshop we will look at essential vocabulary for discussing your art practice, learn to understand standard art jargon and practice representing yourself and your work in spoken and written form. We will also spend some time exploring the value of small talk in the English speaking art world.

Who is picking the artists ? How can I improve my participation possibilities ? How do juries work ? Do I need to have realized projects in public space already ? More Q&A !

Editions and Multiples – Dr. Helen Adkins
Wednesday, December 7, 2016, 12-4 pm

The motivation to produce this kind of artwork is often of a financial nature. Looking for a more accessible market segment implies that you have to think about commercial strategies. It is not because your work is „small and cheap' and that it will automatically sell well. How do I choose the motif, size, and number of copies? What is special about producing a three-dimensional multiple? Following a general introduction, we will discuss your specific questions.
