Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts
18 July – 27 August 2016
The Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts, founded in 1953 by Oskar Kokoschka as the “School of Vision” is the oldest of its kind in Europe. Every year, some 300 participants from more than 50 countries attend some 20 courses, directed by well-known artists, curators and critics from all over the world, focusing on topical questions of art production, as well as curatorial practice and writing about art. The Summer Academy is open to anyone interested. Some two-thirds of participants are professionals (artists and art students). All applicants submit to a process in which the teachers of the courses chosen decide on acceptance; however, the proportion of rejected applications is extremely small.
Beside others, this year there will be courses directed by Maha Maamoun, Ahlam Shibli and Alya Sebti.
The Summer Academy awards a number of grants for participation in one of the 22 courses.
