Offer your M.A., M.F.A. and postgrad students of all artistic orientations a unique and intensive learning experience amidst the scenic Flemish countryside near Antwerp.

One or two week stays - analogue and digital ateliers - expert printmakers - custom Artist Meetings & Talks.
Between November 13 and December 6, 2019
What does the future hold for the printed image and word? What pressing issues will be posed in 60 years’ time if the fleetingness heralded by today’s digital age persists? Will we be able to acclimatize the digital with the analogue? Will print, one of the most accessible and democratic mediums, disappear? Or will it, for instance, find refuge in some kind of underground resistance? And what new forms and carriers will ensure its survival? These are only some of the questions on which Frans Masereel Centrum, together with internationally renowned artists such as åbäke, Karin Ferrari and Emre Hüner, builds its ten-day masterclass. Students and teachers will be inspired by multiple Artist Talks, extra muros activities and advanced workshop programmes – helmed by an elite of external artists – centred on an extended list of techniques. The masterclass programme culminates in a big exhibition where your students’ works will be shown next to that of established artists.
Application deadline: April 14, 2019.
Selection will be made known on April 19.
