Carita Forsgren, Sari Tervaniemi
In the Autumn in the Applied Fine art Minor the technique you’ll be working with is based on your earlier skills, you can make for example video projects, photography projects, drawing projects, plans for games (also board games) or sound art projects that you apply to the courses. The courses focus on different scenes in contemporary art for example on Community-based Art, Site Specific Art and Games in Fine Art. When making plans for the projects we’ll discuss critical thinking and the relationships to the situations in the world, to the society as well as media critic. This Minor suits for the 2nd to fourth year students who master some technique and are willing to develop their projects to the next level.
