The Open Academy
Lecture by Rajmund Stecker
The series is organised at Warsaw’s Academy of Fine Arts on the invitation of Prof Mirosław Bałka.
The processes of change now taking place in the structure of the Academy and the new faculty are symptomatic of the search for the school’s new formula and quality. The series of meetings held in the main hall of the Academy will include talks with professors, graduates and museum specialists. The participants invited are affiliated with different European colleges and schools which have been able to work out very specific ways, strategies and concepts of working with artists and, at the same time, forming artists. This they were able to achieve owing to sometimes very radical choices, selecting specific elements on which they decided to place special stress (teaching theory, training artists by artists, etc).
