Program Description:

/’vɔɪs/ SUMMER SCHOOL 2017
From July 24th to 30th

Can Serrat / Fundació Joan Miró_ Barcelona.

The Can Serrat International Art Residency is making a call to artists and students who would like to participate in an intensive summer course focused on the potential of the voice as an artistic medium.

/’vɔɪs/ is an artist-driven, one-week-long course designed to be a laboratory for artists whose work involves their own voice or voice as subject matter and research focus. The aim of the course is to assist in developing the voice as raw material and tool-kit for exploration. In this respect, /’vɔɪs/ will provide a space for experimentation and investigation on the possibilities of voice in performative practice. The syllabus will be based on discussions about artistic projects that question the sign system of spoken language and its use for interaction. Participants are expected to explore disembodied voices, embodied voices, post-human vocalization, machine-made voices, as well as politically motivated voices.

Artists Stine Janvin Motland and Tomomi Adachi are the invited teachers for this first edition of the course. They will lead two workshops focusing on their respective methodologies, which link voice, language, speech, sound and performance.

Artists Laia Estruch and Jaume Ferrete, cofounders of the course and based in Barcelona and Mexico respectively, will manage the course and provide support and guidance to participants when developing their projects for the final presentation.

The basic schedule will be divided between morning workshops with the guest teachers and afternoons dedicated to individual projects with the assistance of both teachers and coordinators. The latter will also promote discussion and share selected theoretical texts as a means to reflect on the processes and experiments discussed in the morning sessions.

The workshops will take place at the Can Serrat International Art Residency, located next to El Bruc, a village at the foot of Montserrat mountain, about 30 minutes NW of Barcelona by car. Can Serrat will be the space for teachers and students to live and work side by side, creating a common living and working experience during which all involved can share their research processes in an intensive manner.

At the end of the week, participants will be able to present their resulting works in the auditorium of the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona. _
