Field Academy

Field Academy

 

One of the experimental approaches to the art education is connected with biodynamic agriculture.   Once a week lectures are heldoutside of the city, in a healthy environment, close to nature. The course evolves around ecological and environmental issues and takes placeat the residency of Mamuka Japaridze, Georgian artist and his partner, Anthea Nikolson, British artist and writer.

 

This process, which Mamuka called “Field Academy”, transpires on 1200 sq2 territory, specially allocated for the Center. Here, students are brought to a new social space,where through artistic activities, experimentally integrated in organic agriculture, studentsdevelop differentrelations with themselves and among each other.
