Drawing in Space - Mona Jas

when 14 August 2017 - 19 August 2017
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 590

Draw is about combining different elements and layers: lines, dots, dashes, and shading on surfaces can convey thoughts, emotions, and concepts, record observations, conceive processes, and document experiences. Drawing blends high abstraction with direct physicality.

The aim of this course will be to test out these possibilities ourselves and to engage in critical reflection using specific examples. We will develop a narrative together based on the people and architecture from the context of the surrounding neighborhood (temporary housing, the landmark, the trade union, schools, apartments). We will then use the medium of drawing to translate and visualize this narrative and present the results in a space inside the Bauhaus monument. The drawings will be created as a joint work using digital pens, plotted and installed as a temporary installation in this space.
The course is planned as follows: In the first phase we will familiarize ourselves with the practice and theory of drawing. This will be followed by a research phase, in which we will conduct field research in the surrounding environment. In the third phase, we will develop graphic elements. In the fourth phase, we will work together to develop the installation, which we will realize on site in the fifth phase.

It is assumed that students are interested in and have experience with drawing.
