The Summer Academy welcomes your application to participate in one of these or 19 further courses. Priority application deadline is 2 May 2016.

Bernhard Cella
Vienna-based artist Bernhard Cella is known for his Salon für Kunstbuch, that he is running in the 21er Haus in Vienna since 2011. His course deals with the current status of the printed (analogue) book and concomitant questions. It enables participants to design and develop their own publications, from the initial idea, through the conception, right up to the finished product.
Fee: € 950.- (reduced: € 710.-)

Senam Okudzeto
Senam Okudzeto considers herself a post-national artist as she lives and works in the USA, Europe and West Africa. Currently she is the Edith Bloom/Jesse Howard, Jr. Rome Prize Fellow at the American Academy in Rome. Her course is open to anyone keen on drawing. This class mixes unorthodox and conventional drawing techniques with an aim of both improving drawing skills and developing experimental approaches to drawing and representation.
Fee: € 450.- (reduced: € 370.-)

Lukas Pusch
Although the works of the Vienna artist Lukas Pusch are often regarded as provocative, his priority is image-finding and artistic autonomy. Together with the participants in his course Lukas Pusch will explore various techniques of classical printmaking, such as etching, woodcut and silkscreen, as well as experimenting with alternative methods. They will learn not only new techniques, but also ways of developing their own work.
Fee: € 950.- (reduced: € 710.-)
