Avoin Akatemia

Avoin Akatemia on oppimisen ja kriittisen keskustelun elävä foorumi ja Kuvataideakatemian yhteiskunnallisen vuorovaikutuksen väylä.

Avoimen Akatemian avoin yliopisto-opetus taustoittaa taidetta paitsi perinteisin luennoin myös elävien esitysten keinoin. Opetus on tarkoitettu yhtä lailla taiteen kentän toimijoille ja tutkijoille, harrastajille kuin kaikille muille kiinnostuneille.

Tervetuloa kuuntelemaan ja keskustelemaan!

Wednesday Lectures Autumn 2014

The Academy of Fine Arts' open Wednesday Lectures offer insight on current topics of contemporary art. Organised twice a year, the Studia Generalia lecture series introduces visiting artists and art professionals from Finland and internationally. In autumn 2014, the lectures take place in club evenings where visitors also have an opportunity for more informal networking. 

Experimentation – Ideas and Practices

How does experimentation appear in artistic practices in the contemporary world? In autumn 2014, the Wednesday Lectures Club introduces international artists and art organisations that carry on experimental work in new and meaningful ways. The topic is discussed trough case studies with international artists and art professionals. Club evenings are followed by an informal chat with refreshments.
