Level: Open to both BA and MA

Application deadline: 31st of May
How to apply:
In order to apply fill in this form: https://forms.gle/tZVXG8ZaKvBpX7GWA
The applicants will be informed regarding their applications by the 3rd of June.

Course description:
The participants of the course will be introduced to the methods of listening and recording sound with contact microphones as well as digital sound editing.
These microphones sense audio vibrations through contact with solid objects unlike their counterparts, which sense the changes in air pressure. Contact microphones are almost completely insensitive to air vibrations but transduce only structure-borne sound. Listening to these sounds reveals another layer of the surrounding soundscape usually imperceivable to the human ear. Thanks to their small size and portability even remote places become available of acoustic exploration.

Course description:

These days, articles in the news warn us almost daily anew of environmental threats related to climate change. The thawing of the permafrost and the connected release of an enormous amount of greenhouse gases will further increase global warming in a positive feedback loop that may last centuries or millennia. This global warming will result in the collapse of ecosystems, the disappearance of the rainforests, mass extinction of species, the melting of the icecaps, the warming of the oceans and the ensuing seawater rise that threatens most of the world’s megacities. The global rise of the earth’s temperature by just a couple of degrees threatens us with desertification, mass migration, the possible collapse of the jet stream, the intensification of weather-related catastrophes like brushfires, hurricanes, floods and heatwaves…the list can be continued.

Course description:

Continuing thoughts on approaching existence intuitively from the theory class in the Fall, this workshop seeks to switch from close-reading to poetics. We will engage the notion of the omen: a sign of which you sense with your whole body and soul that is means something, you simply cannot say what. The aim of the workshop is to put a small exhibition together that will open at the end of the project. It could be mysteriously theatrical, it may as well however, be quite silent and poetic. Visual work may be accompanied by audio pieces, performances or poetry readings. To reach this result the class will be taught by Verwoert focussing on poetic writing and performance, with guest teacher and artist from Berlin, Özlem Altin, guiding students into less wordy territories by teaching them the subtle use of images as material omens.
