Summary

Explore the relationships and boundaries between art and architecture. Create site-specific sculptures that are presented in a final exhibition.

Content

The work of the German artist Karsten Födinger is oscillating between art and architecture.
Together with him the participants of this course are meant to achieve a new perspective and approach to examine architecture by transforming an intuitive reflection on a site into a radical sculptural examination.

After an introduction to Födinger¿s work and an insight to the artistic processes the course investigates and reflects the personal sourounding and the personal relation to the campus and the city of Lausanne.

The personal impressions and research results are meant to be transferred into an individual reaction responding specifically to the site. The participants are free to choose the artistic means to materialize their work.

The elaborated results will be shown in an exhibition. An experimental setup to question the sensational routines of both, the participants and the viewers. The works will be located according to their physical nature and correlating to the site and the works of the other participants.
