Kunstpodium T is the independent laboratory and platform for art students and contemporary artists. Kunstpodium T facilitates the development of the artists identity and cultural entrepreneurship for a new generation of artists. How do you create a bridge linking students graduating from art school to the professional field? How do you build a network as a young artist? Encounters, cooperation, networking and visibility for a new generation of artists are the points of focus of the Apprentice/Master project.
Apprentice/Master aims to create a space of inspiration and collaboration between young artists in their graduation year and more experienced contemporary artists. The project offers an intensive exchange with an infrastructure between artists, art schools, exhibition spaces and the field of activity. This creates an ever growing international network, for emerging artists, a trusted but exciting place for the freshly graduated, to help them position themselves in an expanding art world, and to create, an inspirational base for everyone interested in the arts.
The Apprentice/Master project organized a meetup to recapitulate on the past year, and opposed the following questions to start an active discourse, putting their gained experience into practice.
I. Art & crisis
How does the artist survive in todays society?
II. Looking forward
The role of the artist in the society of the future
Learning from experience
