As visual artists, we stand in the field of tension between various teachings and traditions of art, the world of politics, external symbols, the virtual world of images and information, and the work on our self-knowledge and individuation.In this process, pictorial work can be helpful as a field of action and reflection of one’s own abilities and concerns, even – and especially if – one does not yet have a clear conception of it, but the urge to do exists. The canvas forms our audience, so to speak, with whom we enter into an open, playful dialogue in order to arrive at new impulses and images. We let everything we do on the canvas have an effect on us, meditate together, talk to each other about it, act and react sometimes intuitively, sometimes reflectively, create, overcome, reject and thus – little by little – develop a pictorial world – perhaps an individual, symbolist narrative. This can be abstract and representational at the same time.
This course is intended primarily for artists, art students, and ambitious enthusiasts of artistic work. For art therapists or art therapy students this offer is interesting among other things by the references to meditation and C.G. Jung’s concept of active imagination (and further development) of inner images.
All materials are to bring yourself. Painting should be on medium to large formats of canvas or other image carriers.

Structure: one-week summer/holiday course (Mon-Fri 10am-1pm, Sat 10am-6pm)
