The syllabus of the Institute of Artistic Practices (JAI-Jardun Artistikoen Institutua) arises as an initiative promoted by the Tabakalera International Centre for Contemporary Culture, the programme's venue in San Sebastian and the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country, Artium Museoa, the programme's venue in Vitoria-Gasteiz. In this third edition, Jorge Oteiza Museum Foundation in Alzuza has joined the proposal.  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 predisposition 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 relationship on the use of its languages.

The teaching staff of JAI is defined by a systematic premise: the invitation from the institutions that promote the project to the artists that are part of their exhibition programmes to be teachers at JAI. This decision arises from the desire to extend the professional relations that take place in an institutional environment to the nearby context and, in doing so, to go deeper into the production and transmission of knowledge by building a space between artists from the Basque context and others who are active in the international sphere.

Based on these premises, JAI is structured around the same question posed to each of the people invited to be part of the teaching staff: What practical knowledge that defines your work process are you able to transmit to others?
