WORK.MASTER STUDENT MEETINGS
For two years now, regular discussions have taken place within the programme to address issues such as student participation, possible (delegate) representation and in general to give space to different desires and demands coming from the students, as well as to improve the collective and participative dynamics of the programme.
We strongly encourage you to continue these discussions and to meet regularly, for example if you want to present any ideas and requests you may have for the programme to the coordination team. The assistants are here to help you organise this initially and to listen to you, but the idea is that this should be primarily a student initiative!
In the Work.Master calendar you will see that some Wednesday afternoons are dedicated to "Studio Presentations" (16 Nov, 7 Dec, 1 Mar, 15 Mar, 17 May). These moments are a space to meet, to in small groups discuss your work, your projects in general, technical or conceptual issues, research topics: all topics related to your practice, in a relaxed way, with a group of students and tutors in your studio. The work you present does not have to be finished, it can also be work in progress. This year we will focus on the fundamental issues of hanging, displaying and communicating your work. All students are of course welcome!
Practical tutors, theory tutors, and assistants participate on these Wednesday afternoons according to their availability at the time. These moments are not critical sessions, nor are they workshop visits or tutorials. The idea is to reserve space in the weekly programme for more flexible times, and to remain open to whatever might happen during these sessions. However, if you do attend, we ask that you stay for the entire afternoon of talks and presentations, in order to keep the group dynamic.
If you wish to discuss your project during one of these times, you can email the assistants so that we know we should come to visit you in your studio, but we will also walk around on these Wednesday afternoons and ask you spontaneously if you wish to participate.
Student critique sessions are also part of the programme, you are free to organise them yourself, in the building or outside, and to inform the rest of the master if you wish. If you need help in organising a self-organised discussion group, please email the assistants.
