  • The making of an art publication in relation to theatricality and contemporary performance practices in the form of a newspaper
  • Discuss your own artistic practice
InhalteThis course is dedicated to the making of the Pavillionesque Newspaper. During the practice seminar students will have the opportunity to propose their own topics and artistic contribution that will be included in the issue and participate in the making and printing of the newspaper. Students will be able to experiment with all forms of contribution(s) constituting a newspaper, be it illustrating texts or proposing their own design of the newspaper.

In the first week we invited artist Benedikt Bock to join for a workshop in which students will reflect forms of an artistic articulation for Pavillionesque Newspaper, i.e. we will discuss the format of the newspaper in general in order to find new means for artistic expression in printed matter and its distribution.
In the second week we invited curator, writer and publisher of South magazine Marina Fokides from Athens and students will work on their individual contributions to the newspaper, from horoscopes, puzzles, rebuses and advertising. At the end of May 2023 there will be an event in a chosen venue in Zurich with the launch of the magazine.

Paulina Olowska (b. 1976, Gdansk, Poland) is a painter, performer, director, curator and collaborator,.

Rabea Ridlhammer (DE, 1990) is an artist and graphic designer based in Zürich. Her work is often research based and collaborative, making use of and dealing with trivialized practices and minor aesthetic categories such as cuteness, comedy, craft or gossip. The bar is a recurrent element or site of her works, being both a space of social encounter and a place with a specific function outside of the art context.
