About the Course

As a practitioner or student of design or a related field, you have an opportunity to take part in an individual project incorporating an artistic exploring approach to design during the summer semester. The project may involve experimenting with materials and methods as well as problematizing concepts of what design is and should be able to be.

In connection with the start of the course, you will be assigned a supervisor based on your submitted letter of intent. This supervisor will follow you throughout the project.

In addition to the individual supervision, instruction is given in seminar form with a group supervisor. During the seminars, the project is discussed on the basis of the participants’ experiences, drawing on their own practical work.

The course consists of practical individual project work as well as written work in the form of reflection on the individual’s own project results and the process of achieving these results.

The course is intended for those who have access to their own workplace / studio. 

An exploring approach, along with training to enhance creativity, is what we mean by education with an artistic basis. The exploring approach centres around curiosity and openness to opportunities that reveal themselves in the process and the ability to handle uncertainty in the exploration.

Information about the summer course:
The summer course has four meetings on campus in HDK Gothenburg, two in June and two in August. The HDK workshops will not be open during the course.
