Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts

Salzburg, Austria, 20 July - 29 August 2015

The Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts, founded in 1953 by Oskar Kokoschka as the School of Vision, in the Hohensalzburg Fortress, is the oldest of its kind in Europe. Every year, around 300 participants from more than 40 countries attend some 20 courses.

The Production of Meaning is the motto of this year's International Summer Academy course programme, which asks about the sense of our (individual or social) conduct, and how meaning can be produced with artistic (critical and curatorial) resources. Many artists are working on this and related themes in very different ways, attempting - to put it simplistically - to understand and represent the world we live in, producing a multiplicity of meanings and opening the way for different interpretations.
