Art + Critique: Critical & Contextual Studies in Art Practice ONLINE

Combined critical studies and studio practice course that integrates practice and theory in a comprehensive programme of lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and off-site visits.

The course will help you develop your practice and research and provide you with a solid background in the histories and discourses of contemporary art. The lectures survey the histories and discourses of contemporary art, demystify the art world and provide multiple entry points into critical theory. The programme fosters collaborative study and provides practical tools in group feedback sessions and workshops on creative practice, research and writing.

By the end of the course participants will have a critical awareness of contemporary art practice, with a road map and toolbox of methodologies for their continuing practice and the confidence to pursue it independently. The course is open to everyone but it is particularly suited to those who have a background in art and wish to develop their practice and extend their knowledge of contemporary art practices and discourses.

About Me

Sophia is an artist, tutor, curator and researcher. Her work addresses the construction of identity through relationships and more recently her research and practice is oriented toward group dynamics, collectivity, cooperation and self-organisation – blurring the boundaries between art, education and activism to question the ontology of art, its social functions and institutional contexts, and to experiment with collective economies and learning environments. In 2015 she founded ART&CRITIQUE, an alternative art education network, superseded in 2019 by the Radical Pedagogy Research Group, a peer-led participatory action-research project. She is currently working on a project to start a co-operative art school, providing a self-organised and sustainable alternative to mainstream art education. She is a former member of Exploding Cinema, The Field, Deptford Cinema, Body Politic and other collectives.

Education

Sophia has a practice-based PhD in Fine Art from Goldsmiths. Her research interests include institutional critique and the relationship between art and politics, institutions and independent organisations and collective practices. She has a BA in Fine Art (Sculpture) First Class Honours with Distinction with studies in Photography, Printmaking, Stage Design, Graphic Design, Theory of Art, History of Art, Philosophy of Aesthetics, Architecture, Pedagogy & Psychology of Education and Didactics in Art Education.

Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

French literature from the Middle Ages to today, French & methodology
We are constantly surrounded by books. Just when we open a dictionary in elementary school, it is filled with history. This love of literature, I pass it on to you during my course For me, literature is an essential discipline for understanding the world around us and its evolution through new points of view and unprecedented testimonies. The great classics of literature is the best way to learn about the great changes and currents of thought in France from the Middle Ages to today. The French courses given in college and high school are introductions to literature. They consist of text studies, grammar questions or various questions around literature in general. This material leads to practical exercises such as the essay or text commentary. However, they are not always complete for us and it is difficult to see certain authors who are nevertheless part of the literary pantheon. In order to deepen your literary culture, I offer you an immersion in the best known and least known texts of Rabelais via Voltaire and Cyrano de Bergerac until going to Laurent Gaudé or Simone de Beauvoir. Through theoretical courses (methodology, literary history, discovery of authors) and practices (comments, discussions around an author or an author and comparative literature), I accompany you in your (re)discovery of French literature. .

MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.

Maxime
Preparation course for the French Baccalaureate exam
The French Baccalaureate exams require a thorough preparation of the texts in the program and the issues of the subject, and it is difficult to know the authors and the method of the exams in force. That is why I propose a preparation for dissertation, commentary, and grammar questions. But this is obviously inseparable from a course based on discussion and exchange, and the pleasure of understanding gradually, gaining confidence in oneself and one’s abilities.
