InhalteIn the practice module the students' own artistic practice takes place. The focus lies on studio work and discussions about the students' individual or collaborative work. The practice module takes place over the course of six semesters and is led by at least two lecturers/artists, who also provide study guidance for the students in the module. Teaching formats include joint work discourses, excursions, visits to artists’ studios, group discussions and close supervision of the students through individual mentoring. All students in a practice module share workstations in a studio, which further promotes the exchange of ideas and experiences.
