Call to participate in the study programme Institute of Artistic Practices in 2021

The syllabus of the Institute of Artistic Practices (JAI) arises as an initiative promoted by the Tabakalera International Centre for Contemporary Culture, the programme's venue in San Sebastian, and the Basque Museum of Contemporary Art, Artium, the programme's venue in Vitoria-Gasteiz. It does so acknowledging the particular tradition of knowledge transmission in the field of contemporary art with roots in the Basque Country, through a variety of educational projects that have taken place within the near context with an experimental approach. Among other matters, this experience combines, on the one hand, a pre disposition to discuss the social function of art, and on the other, an ongoing dialogue on its material practice.

From these assumptions, JAI presents itself as a summer school that has among its objectives to establish a space from which to promote these exchanges and crossovers.For this purpose, the programme brings together professional voices from very different backgrounds, capable of identifying the potential of artistic practice to look at the contemporary world and establish a critical relationshipon the use of its languages.

The proposed mechanics is designed to provoke each artist who forms part of the programme to offer a unique vision of these processes, which builds a methodology that is crossed by the relationships that are woven in the workshop space, as well as by the specific practices that are developed at each moment and situation generated by the teaching staff. The objective of this way of proceeding is to encourage the critical development of the proposals and the work of the participants. In this direction, the proposal insists on the importance of the work to be developed in the workshop space that each participant will be assigned. A shared workshop space that will have an individualized tutoring by the tutors of the programme.

JAI is addressed to artists or agents of the sector interested in deepening the methodologies of art.
