"Call for Artists: COURSE IN CONTEMPORARY ART, 23-29 April 2007"
2007-02-19 until 2007-04-15
TIPP - Tihany International Postgraduate Program
Budapest, , HU Hungary

TIPP - Tihany International Postgraduate Program is an international collaborative research initiative between the Visual Arts Department at Goldsmiths College, London and the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts. The program includes symposiums, intensive courses, conferences, artist-in-residencies, exhibitions and other events as well as the production of publications. Our aim is to create an international forum for artists to explore the creative diversity of contemporary fine art practice and the nature of the critical discourse, which surrounds it. The courses also provide a chance to have access to the experience of the teaching staff from both Goldsmiths and the Hungarian Academy in Budapest and can serve as an introduction to postgraduate study at either institution. The teaching techniques we use have been developed by Goldsmiths College over the last 18 years and exemplify an approach that is deeply critical, whilst also being irreverent and playful.

The teaching techniques we use have been developed by Goldsmiths College over the last 18 years and exemplify an approach that is deeply critical, whilst also being irreverent and playful. The courses are ideal for those who are considering returning to postgraduate education after a break or those who wish to have an intensive period of reflection and discussion around their current practice. In this sense the teaching is centred around the participants' individual needs. Tutors and lecturers in previous programmes were: Attila Csorgo, Beata Veszely, David Mabb, David Wilkinson, Hugh Mulholland, Janos Sugar, Jeremy Millar, Kate Smith, Kisvarso, Miklos Erhardt, Saki Satom, Dr. Suhail Malik, Susan Taylor, Szabolcs Kisspal, Orshi Drozdik, Akos Birkas and others.

The programs are mainly situated at the newly renovated premises of the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Tihany, where participants have the opportunity to experience art, theory and debate away from its usual urban environment. In locating TIPP this way, a uniquely open atmosphere is created. From experience we have found that the opportunity for more relaxed social interaction between participants directly contributes to freer expression and sharing of ideas and a more open forum for debate.

5. TIPP INTERNATIONAL COURSE IN CONTEMPORARY ART, 23 - 29 April 2007

Course of Study

A course of study for a group of international artists, who have already started to move in a specific direction within their work and who would like to participate in a one-week intensive programme, which is offering the opportunity to further develop their working practice. The course focuses on helping artists to reach a heightened understanding of their work in a wider artistic, cultural and theoretical context. Our aim is to encourage and develop the production of new works, ideas and concepts through giving access to a seminar and tutorial programme from an international field of teaching staff drawn from Goldsmiths College, London, the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, Budapest as well as invited internationally renowned artists and curators.

Program

- Seminars
- Tutorials
- Lectures
- Video Nights
- Excursion

After the fifth anniversary of the TIPP programme this year we are planning to produce a publication which will contain participants' works and texts of lectures, as well as would like to organise a major exhibition for past students. These plans of TIPP are yet subject to funding.

LOCATION

Tihany is a very lively village during the summer holidays with first class restaurants, bars and cafes all a short walk from TIPP's premises. Since the mid sixties it has been a favourite holiday location for people from all over Europe. It is a peninsula reaching out into Lake Balaton, the largest fresh water lake in Central Europe. The landscape is volcanic in nature and the main industries are forestry, viniculture and tourism. Tihany also boasts a long and colourful history; it was the burial place of the Hungarian royals in the middle ages and is the site of a beautiful baroque church that belongs to the Benedictine order. The Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts' premises where TIPP is based are the original agricultural buildings of the monastery. The setting is unusually serene and forms part of a large nature reserve that is home to many rare forms of plant and animal life. The 2000 m2 grounds of the facility accommodate an array of buildings set in fields that roll down to the side of a small inland fishing lake, the Belsö Tó. The premises of the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts at Tihany were fully renovated in 1998. They offer accommodation for forty people during the summer and twenty-five during the winter. Most of the rooms are double with a few accommodating upto four people; all rooms have an on-suite bathroom with shower. The complex also has a large refectory and kitchen where communal meals may be shared. The facility boasts a huge medieval open barn that acts as a studio and exhibition space during the summer. There are also many other buildings that may be used as studios and exhibition spaces. The facility also has wireless internet connection.
