What makes a difference; materiality, concept, perspective? Material is the substance that comprises the whole, a gestalt matter of that which is tangible. Or is it? The material that leads to a play or a comedy routine isn’t tangible. So then, is material a tool? A yard of fabric? Is material a quality? Whether substantial or a mode of philosophical reasoning in our work; there is no material difference.
As we embark on our graduation, we invite you to a showcase of our progress and research in it’s final culmination. At AKV|St.Joost, master’s students are challenged to respond to and shape a new reality within the contemporary landscape. With a focus on new models of self-organization, alternative networks and artist-initiated activities; participants explore their own position, while focusing on an integrated approach to independent research and studio practice.
