中国美术学院跨媒体艺术学院

苏黎世艺术大学联合硕士创新教育香港交流项目

跨文化合作


本教育项目由苏黎世艺术大学、香港演艺学院、香港城市大学创意媒体学院,中国美术学院跨媒体艺术学院合作办学。
此项目独具开拓性,以跨文化、跨学科为教学理念,招收生源以所有艺术、设计类硕士研究生为基准。与此同时,由各合作院校选派参与项目的学生将有机会到以香港为主的几个欧亚城市进行一个学期的学习。

项目介绍

本研究生课程项目具有以下两个突出的核心特色:
1、“跨文化”主题是本项目的聚焦点,讨论的核心问题包括传统、身份、现状的生成谱系学、价值观、各种伦理学、生命的不同形式、欧洲与东亚、南亚地区的全球化。基于艺术类学生对于社会、文化状况的敏感性与自我建构及以艺术美来表达多样主题的能力,艺术与设计的实践可以为跨文化论述做出理想的贡献。参与的学生将获得在国际环境工作时所需的强大支撑,收获学习对方文化并反思自身文化的宝贵体验。香港则以其独特的语境作为国际背景下最合适的项目大本营。
2、文化与艺术形式之间的实践性跨学科合作是本项目第二个重要的关注点,将作为项目最重要的工作方法。实践性跨学科合作将促进跨文化主题的深入交流。跨文化研究的第一手经验也将为进一步区分与扩展自身学科做出贡献。跨学科理论的输入将帮助参与者批判性地反思并进一步洞察跨文化这一紧迫问题。
整个项目具有明确的实验性特质,可将其理解为一个“开放工作室”,其课程将根据所参与学生与讲师的主题兴趣不断塑造与修改。

项目计划

跨文化与跨学科背景以三个主要阶段确定这个学期的基本结构:
第一阶段将致力于“自我意识”的探讨,在此过程中导入参与学生及讲师的具体兴趣,此过程将主导整个学期的内容。 在此基础上混合群体与主题的构造将会是实践性跨学科工作的起点,并以此开发涉及所有成员学科的艺术与设计项目。
第二阶段“定位”,思考如何定位自身与文化、传统、社会、艺术或商业文化的联系。
第三阶段:“曝光”,专注于艺术与设计的生产与反响问题。三个主要阶段的实际特点是课程中心深刻连接到理论输入与反思,关于亚洲与欧洲(历史与当代)文化、跨文化问题、艺术与设计实践与各种形式的文化管理中,形式如讲座、讨论组、文献、工作坊或师徒制。除此以外,一次为期两周的欧洲或亚洲出行以及一次由著名艺术家主持的工作坊,也将伴随项目的展开。
学期的最后一周,将在香港举行集体创作的作品公展以及对整个过程的总结反思,学生有权独立定义活动形式并策划活动。

Announcement
New Graduate-Level Educational Format in the Arts based in Hong Kong:
Transcultural Collaboration

A project of Zurich University of the Arts, Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, City University of Hong Kong/School of Creative Media, China Academy of Art/School of Intermedia Art, Hangzhou.

We are launching a pioneering transcultural and cross-disciplinary educational format for graduate students of all art and design disciplines. Selected students from the involved partner institutions will have the possibility to study for one semester within this specific programme, which will be based mainly in Hong Kong.

ZHdK/Common Stage 2014

About

The programme has two central characteristics that can only be experienced and explored in this very specific setting.
First of all it will focus on topics of transculturality as the key content that includes subjects like traditions, identity, genealogy of the present, values, ethics, different forms of life or globalization specifically between Europe and South East Asia.
Given their sensitivity to social and cultural conditions, and their ability to formulate and express a variety of topics with aesthetic means, artistic and design practices can make an ideal contribution to transcultural discourse. Participants will acquire profound competences, which are more and more in demand working in international contexts, learning about the other and being able to reflect one’s own culture. Hong Kong is predestined as an exemplary location within this thematic context.

Secondly practical cross-disciplinary collaboration between cultures and art forms is the second important focus of the programme and its principal working method.
This approach will promote intensive exchange and first-hand experience of the transcultural topics as well as further differentiate and extend one’s own discipline. Theoretical inputs will help participants to critically reflect on transculturality and to gain further insights into this pressing issue.

We clearly emphasise the experimental character of the programme and therefore understand it as an “open studio,” whose curriculum will be continually shaped and modified by the thematic interests of the participating students and lecturers.

Programme

On the background of the transcultural and cross-disciplinary focus three main phases define the basic structure of the semester: The starting phase is dedicated to questions of “self-awareness”, as well as the introduction of the specific interests of the participating students and lecturers that will highly influence the semester content.Based on that the constitution of mixed groups and their topics will be the starting point for the practical cross-disciplinary work and the development art and design projects involving all disciplines of the group members.

Followed by a second phase that is dedicated to the topic of “positioning” thus questions of how we position ourselves related to our culture, traditions, society, art or business environment.

The third phase called “going public” where we focus on questions of art and design production and reception. While the practical character of the three main phases is central it will be strongly connected to theoretical inputs and reflection in the fields of Asian and European (historical and contemporary) culture, issues of transculturality, art and design practice and cultural management in various formats like lectures, panels, literature, workshops or mentoring.
Between the three main parts of the semester programme there will be two inserts where one will be a two weeks excursion in Europe or Asia as well as a specific workshop lead by renowned artists. In the last week of the semester there will be a public presentation of the groups works in Hong Kong as well as a reflection of the whole process. Students have the chance defining and planning this format independently.
