RECTOR’S GREETING

Dear students, The 2011-2012 Academic Catalog of the Department of Fine Arts of the Athens School of Fine Arts (A.S.F.A.) is a valuable tool which now reaches your hands, and a helpful one for everyone interested in studying Art in Greece. It provides all the information on the identity, overall structure, operation and curriculum of the Department, as well as a comprehensive guide of the obligations and rights arising from your student status, along with the services and facilities offered to you during your studies at the A.S.F.A. In this sense, the publication of a courses’ catalog is always indispensable, an obligation toward the students every academic institution has to meet; and in our case, all the more so, since graphic design falls within the scope of the studies offered. As a result, such a publication is expected to be of outstanding quality, reflecting and even highlighting the particular identity and vitality of the A.S.F.A. – Greece’s first and premier art school, established 175 years ago. Dear students, These are extremely harsh times for all of us in Greece; the present is a trying time, an ordeal if you will, accompanied by a sense of loss, but it is also “History in the making”. In the great adventure of Art, “the real life is an enterprise always ‘in the red’”* – that’s all I have to say with regard to the economic indices, the oppressing fiscal measures, the suffocating “bail-outs” and the “fluctuating returns” of a system we have to bear with, in its most profound crisis. 9


On the occasion of this short greeting, I would like to wish you a happy and productive academic year, rich in new experiences and knowledge. I am sure that the choice that you made and your own perseverance in attaining your goals, together with the members of this institution’s teaching staff – the professors of the courses and the instructors of the art studios – and its long history are the perfect combination ensuring a new impetus for the A.S.F.A. and the shaping of a brighter future.

Giorgos Harvalias Rector of the A.S.F.A.

FOREWORD

The English-speaking edition of the Department of Fine Arts’ Academic Catalog in your hands comes to fill a gap of several years since the last publication of this kind. The team that worked for this catalog put a particular effort in order to provide a publication of the highest possible informative and aesthetic value. I think that everyone already studying or wishing to pursue his studies at the A.S.F.A. has now an up-to-date academic calendar and courses catalog, answering every question on the operation of the Department of Fine Arts and both its undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. I always thought that one’s involvement with Art makes one a better person. Today, during these hard times, this comes as a pressing necessity – while offering us a core of resistance against the ever-increasing challenges we are facing. I would like to wish all of our students a successful and fruitful academic year 2011-2012.

The Athens School of Fine Arts


HISTORICAL OVERVIEW OF THE A.S.F.A.

Initially, the School operated only on Sundays and bank holidays, and it admitted students regardless of age and educational level, without having any selection procedure. It was a one-year course and the instruction was gratuitous. Its curriculum included sketching (drawing and geometrical tracery), mathematics, modelling and elementary architecture and, later on, calligraphy. The School’s first appointed Principal (“Governor”) was a Captain of the Corps of Engineers, Friedrich von Zentner. The “Royal School of Arts & Crafts” (or “Polytechnic School”, as the School was also known) was temporarily housed in a residence on Pireos street. The appointed day for inauguration was October 17, 1837. Because of the massive turn-out of candidates, the School was soon rejecting several entry applications. The first appointed teachers of sketching were the Danish Hansen brothers. However, the first bona fide art course was probably

introduced in the curriculum in 1840 and was closely connected with the artistic dispositions of Sophie de Marbois-Lebrun, also known as the “Duchess of Plaisance”, who sought to the invitation of Pierre Bonirote, a painter from Lyon who had studied under Ingres. In 1842, the employment of Philippos Margaritis, who was to teach elementary painting, coincided with the opening of a daily attendance School. The outbreak of the constitutional revolution of September 3, 1843 also affected the School’s operation. On October 22, 1843, a Royal Decree was published which confirmed the existence of three departments within the School: the Sunday school, for those professing “miscellaneous arts & crafts”, the Daily Attendance school, for “industrial craftsmen”, and the Higher school, “for the everyday instruction of the beautiful arts”. Here it is provided that the School will offer instruction in art, from painting through sculpting to engraving. In January 1844, the architect Lyssandros Kautantzoglou takes over as new Principal of the School. That same year, a course in the History of the Visual Arts and Painting Interpretation was introduced into the curriculum, taught by Grigorios Papadopoulos, a Classical Scholar. Soon after, a new, “innovative” course was introduced: a course on photography, taught by Philippos Margaritis.

The history of the A.S.F.A. virtually coincides with the history of the Modern Greek State. The forerunner of the A.S.F.A. was the “School for the Arts”, the Royal Decree for the founding of which was published in the Official Gazette on December 31, 1836 (January 12, 1837). The School was modelled after its western European counterparts, especially those of Bavaria and France.

operation of the School of Fine Arts. As far as the organisational structure of the institution is concerned, a selection procedure for hiring teaching staff is established, adopting an open invitation system instead of directly employing staff members.

The important step towards the formation of a bona fide School of Fine Arts was made after the military coup of 1909. A bill that was passed in February 1910 administratively separated the Art Department from the Industrial Arts Department, allowing the former to become self-governed. Georgios Iakovidis, Curator of the Gallery, was the first Principal of the autonomous School of Fine Arts, which nevertheless continued to operate within the framework of the “Metsovion Polytechnic” (as the School had been officially named, in the meantime, in honour of the “national benefactors” from Metsovo). In 1914, the Metsovion Polytechnic –now named National– was legislatively accredited as an institute of higher education. A new Law regulated the

Iakovidis is to be succeeded, as Principal, by the sculptor Konstantinos Dimitriadis, who, however, is appointed by decree. The Law 4791, passed on July 3, 1930, accredited the School, granting to it academic independence. Thus, the Athens School of Fine Arts, which began as an art department of the “School for the Arts”, severed the umbilical cord attaching it to the Polytechnic and evolved to an independent educational institution. By the same Law, the A.S.F.A. Annexes and its Studios are also established, the latter (already provided in a 1923 law and operating unofficially since the mid1920s) being to this day the educational “nucleus” of the Department of Fine Arts. In order to enrol at a Studio, candidates must pass the admission examinations. In 1939, the chair of History of Art is officially


World War II, the German Occupation and the Greek Civil War, during the 1940s, forced the School to under-function. Dimitriadis, who died in 1943, was succeeded by Epameinondas Thomopoulos. In 1947, Yiannis Moralis succeeds Konstantinos Parthenis. From 1950 to 1970, professors such as the painters Georgios Mavroïdis and Spyros Papaloukas, the sculptors Yiannis Pappas, Dimitris Kalamaras, Thanassis Apartis, the engraver Konstantinos Grammatopoulos, and the architect Pavlos Mylonas are a credit to the School by their teaching work and mere presence. In 1960, the “Practice Workshops”, i.e. today’s Elective Studio Courses, are established. Elli Voïla-Laskari, teaching at the time at the Mosaic Studio, becomes the first female member of the School’s teaching staff. During the 1967-1974 dictatorship, A.S.F.A. students participated in the resistance against the military junta, while no A.S.F.A. professor collaborated with the Colonels’ regime. Following the restoration of Democracy, “new blood” joins the School’s teaching staff, namely artists such as Panayiotis Tetsis, Dimosthenis Kokkinidis, Nikos Kessanlis, Dimitris Mytaras, Georgios Nikolaïdis, Ilias Dekoulakos, Thanassis Exarchopoulos, as well as the architect Savvas Kontaratos; thus all tendencies of modern art are represented, both in theory (enriched by the incorporation of the “Introduction to Philosophy and Aesthetics” course, taught by Pavlos Christodoulidis) and practice (i.e. at the Studios).

Pantelis Prevelakis retired in 1974 and was succeeded by Marina Lambraki-Plaka, who became the School’s first female appointed Professor. In 1992, the painter Rena Papaspyrou becomes the first female Studio Director. A turning point in the School’s evolution comes during the rectorial term (since 1977, the School’s Principal is to become a “Rector”, according to the Presidential Decree 741/1977) of Panayiotis Tetsis, when the Greek State cedes to the A.S.F.A. the old textile factory of the Sikiaridis family, at Pireos street. This building complex will be put in use under the rectorial term of Nikos Kessanlis; today, it houses the greater part of the School’s activities. In 1998, the “Master in Digital Art forms” Postgraduate Studies Programme is established, followed in 2004 by the “Master in Visual Arts” P.S.P. In 1991, the Presidential Decree 486/1991 provides for the establishment of the “Department of Theoretical Art Studies”; known today as the “Department of Art Theory and History of Art”, the new Department admitted students for the first time during the academic year 2006-2007.

ABOUT THE A.S.F.A. The Athens School of Fine Arts (A.S.F.A.) is a Higher Education Institution (H.E.I. or “A.E.I.” as these are known in Greece); it operates as a self-managed Public Entity. The Greek State supervises the above Institution by means of the Minister of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs. In order to perform its mission, the A.S.F.A., as is the case with all H.E.I.s, is subsidised by the Greek State, according to general rules and principles established jointly by the State and the Institution, taking into consideration the 4-year academic & development plans, and the relevant agreements executed in the context of said plans. The A.S.F.A. consists of two Departments: the Department of Fine Arts, and the Department of Art Theory and History of Art RECTORIAL AUTHORITIES

The term of the above authorities expires on August 31, 2014.


RESHAPING THE GREEK HIGHER EDUCATION – TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS The legal framework governing the operation of the Greek H.E.I.s was recently modified by means of the Law 4009, of September 6, 2011, on the “Structure, operation, assurance of quality of the studies, and internationalisation of the Higher Education Institutions”.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 1. ΤHE ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS

The main changes brought on by said law with respect to the structure of the Higher Education Institutions are as follows: Each Institution is constituted by Faculties, which are the main administrative and academic units. The Department is the basic educational unit; it organises teaching within the framework of a particular programme of studies and consists of all professors of the Faculty who teach in the particular programme of studies in question.

18

The bodies of the Institution are: a) the Council, which is vested with decisive responsibilities; it consists of internal and external members; b) the Rector, who is elected following an international call for expression of interest; c) the Senate, which is mainly vested with academic responsibilities. The bodies of the Faculty are the Dean, the Dean’s Council and the General Assembly, while the bodies of the Department are the Chairman (Director) and the Assembly. The bodies of the Faculty of Postgraduate Studies are the Dean, the Dean’s Council, the Head (Director) of the Postgraduate Studies Programme and the Teaching Staff of the Postgraduate Studies Programme. The academic ranks have now three levels: professors, associate professors and assistant professors.

The studies are organised into three cycles: The first cycle involves attending a programme of studies that includes courses corresponding to a minimum of 180 ECTS-credits, and leads to the awarding of an academic degree. The second cycle involves attending a programme of postgraduate studies; such a programme includes courses corresponding to a minimum of 60 ECTS-credits and leads to the awarding of a postgraduate degree. The third cycle involves attending a programme of doctoral studies; such a programme includes courses corresponding to a minimum of 30 ECTS-credits and the submission of a doctoral thesis. The specific principles and rules of operation, the organisation and the particular goals of each Institution, within the framework set by the new law, are specified by its Organisational Chart and Internal Rules of Operation. According to the transitional provisions, the Council to be formed would initiate, starting from February 1st, 2012, the procedure for electing a new Rector, according to the provisions of the new law. The terms of all Rectors and Vice-Rectors elected according to the provisions still in effect at the time the new law was published in the Official Gazette are to expire on August 31, 2012, on which date the Rectors elected according to the provisions of the new law will assume their duties. Until the new Rectors assume their duties, the active Rectors and Vice-Rectors, as well as the existing Rector’s Council will continue to assume their duties, according to the provisions still in effect at the time the new law was published in the Official Gazette.

DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW

22

The basic training unit and virtually the “core” of the Department of Fine Arts is the art Studio, which, over the years, has become synonymous with the studies at and even the very identity of the A.S.F.A. Each Studio, by means of its own syllabus, initially familiarises students with the visual art “language” and its means, shapes their visual and theoretic culture, and ultimately expands their critical thinking in the fields of creation and artistic expression. The art Studio does not just convey to students practical knowledge on various techniques – but a certain idea of Art, a certain view, which can be totally different from the – equally valuable– one proposed by another Studio. The operation of several Studios – with, potentially, as many different point of views on art issues– reflects, on the art education provided by the Department, the pluralism of modern artistic expression, as well as the freedom of choice students enjoy at the A.S.F.A. As a matter of fact, the Department’s curriculum gives its students the opportunity to not only initially opt for but also change the Studio they attend, according to their own interests and personal needs, in pursuit of their personal artistic voice. To this day, the Department of Fine Arts consists of three (3) Divisions: Painting Division, Sculpture Division and Printmaking Division. The Painting Division operates nine (9) Studios, the Sculpture Division operates three (3) Studios, and the Printmaking Division operates two (2) Studios. The Department’s Curriculum also includes elective studio and lecture courses.

Since its establishment, and to this day, many of the Department’s Studios make use of life models in the study of the human body. In the context of a broader syllabus, the study of the human form remains to this day an exercise of particular significance. The duration of studies in the Department of Fine Arts is five years (or 10 semesters). During the last two (2) semesters, students work on their diploma dissertation, under the guidance and supervision of the Director of the Studio they attend and its other Teaching & Research Staff members. Upon completion of their studies, students are awarded by the Department of Fine Arts a common “Diploma in Fine Arts” (Bachelor of Arts), further mentioning their Division option: a) Painting, b) Sculpture, and c) Printmaking. Graduates who have attended and succeeded in the relevant special lecture courses are entitled to teach Art in the Secondary Education. To this day, the Department operates two (2) Postgraduate Studies Programmes (P.S.P.s), leading to the awarding of a “Postgraduate Specialisation Diploma” or Master’s Degree: • The “Master in Digital Art forms” P.S.P., since 1998. • The “Master in Visual Arts” P.S.P., since 2004.

SPECIAL ADMISSION EXAMINATIONS Due to the particular nature of the discipline taught in the Department of Fine Arts of the A.S.F.A., i.e. the art field, its admission examinations are exempted from the general Pan-Hellenic National Examinations scheme. Thus, the Department conducts special admission examinations, according to the Φ.151/2995/Β6/13.1.2010 decision of the Minister of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs (Official Gazette 55/2010 vol.2). • The admission examinations are conducted by the Admission Examinations Committee, which consists of all the members of the Department’s T&R Staff with the academic rank of (Full) Professor and Associate Professor, plus one (1) T&R Staff member with the academic rank of Assistant Professor and one (1) T&R Staff member with the academic rank of Lecturer, who are periodically (or annually) appointed by the Senate. • Candidates for admission to the Department’s 1st year of studies execute visual artworks after various compositionsmodels: life models or still life objects or both. The Admission Examinations Committee selects and sets the models in the examination halls. For each test, candidates are free to choose one or more models, except in the case of tests determined as mandatory by the Admission Examinations Committee. The examinations take place over a period of 5 days.

• The artworks executed by the candidates are as follows: (a) Drawings in charcoal, pencil, ink (drawing materials). (b) Colour on paper, in tempera, water colour, acrylic paint, or pastel. The paper is provided by the Department, while all other (drawing and colour painting) materials are brought by the candidates. From the total of works executed, candidates finally select and submit: (a) one or two (1-2) drawings executed in the context of the life-drawing exercise; (b) one or two (1-2) colour works executed in the context of the colour life-drawing exercise; (c) one work the subject of which is to be dictated to the candidates, after being drawn as a lot among three (3) such subjects set by the Committee on the fourth day of the examinations. Such exercise is executed freely by the candidates, who can opt for a drawing or a colour work, and finally submit one (1) work; (d) one work in the context of the “free subject-composition” exercise, executed by the candidates, who are free to opt between a drawing and a colour work. • Each member of the Admission Examinations Committee grades the total works of each candidate, using a whole number from 1 to 10 (10 being the maximum and 5 being the minimum grade for success). The candidate’s general grade is the sum of grades given by the members of the Admission Examinations Committee divided by the number of those members. For candidates to be admitted, a minimum general grade of 5 must be achieved.

Graduates wishing to be admitted to the Department of Fine Arts by means of the “Classifying Examinations” scheme should submit (or send by post) their application and supporting documents to the Department’s Secretariat within the deadlines announced by the Secretariat. Each academic year, the “Classifying Examinations” are held in December.

REGISTRATION 1. Students should renew each semester their registration to the Department. Registrations for the Fall semester are made during the second half of September, and registrations for the Spring semester are made during the second half of March. 2. After the announcement of the examination results, candidates who succeeded in the A.S.F.A. admission examinations should submit to the Department’s Secretariat an application, mentioning, in order of preference, the Studios they wish to attend. Each Studio admits a number of new students applying for said Studio as a first option, up to its capacity. In case such capacity is met, the process is repeated with the student’s second choice, and so on. 3. In case applications for a required elective studio course exceed the Studio’s capacity, admissions to the Studio are made by drawing lots; remaining students are free to opt for any other required elective studio course. 4. Registration of students who have failed a studio course and must be re-examined should be made within five (5) days following the announcement of the examinations results. Registration of students of other categories should be made within the respective deadlines in effect.

STUDENT STATUS 1. Student status is gained upon registration at the Department and lasts until the student’s graduation. 2. The maximum period of studies, in the case of undergraduate studies, cannot exceed a period corresponding to the minimum number of semesters of studies needed for the awarding of the academic

degree, multiplied by a factor of 2. In extraordinary cases, it is possible for students, after a relevant decision by the Senate, and following a fully founded recommendation by the Department’s General Assembly and a relevant application by the interested student, to prolong their maximum period of studies for up to two (2) semesters. 3. During the September examination period, students may be examined in the courses of both (Fall and Spring) semesters of the current academic year, while during the February examination period, students, apart from the courses of the Fall semester, may also be examined in the courses of the last Spring semester. During the June examination period, students are only examined in the Spring semester courses. 4. In case of a failed required course, students are expected to re-attend the course. In case of a failed elective required course, students are expected to either reattend the course during a following semester or replace it, by opting for another elective course. 5. Students are entitled to suspend their studies, following a written application to the Department’s Secretariat, for as many (consecutive or not) semesters they wish, although for a number of semesters not exceeding the minimum number of semesters of studies needed for the awarding of the academic degree, according to the Department’s Curriculum. The semesters during which studies are suspended do not count in the above mentioned maximum duration of studies. Students suspending their studies, according to the above mentioned regulations, lose their student status for as long as their studies are suspended. Following the cessation of the suspension period, students may re-register at the Department.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES – STUDIES REGULATION

The distribution of semester-long courses to the respective semesters reflects the normal situation for students regularly pursuing their studies, taking into consideration the minimum of semesters required for the awarding of the academic degree, and also the chain of prerequisite courses and courses depending on prerequisites (both are defined when establishing the Curriculum). Students submit their preferences of required elective courses to the Department’s Secretariat at the beginning of each semester, and at dates specified by the Department’s General Assembly. The Department’s Curriculum details the titles of the required, required elective and elective lecture and studio courses, their syllabuses, the weekly teaching (in any form) hours, as well as the succession and/or interdependence between courses. Each semester-long course corresponds to a number of (Greek education system) “credits”. Each “Greek credit” corresponds to one (1) teaching hour per week for the duration of one semester, in the case of teachingonly courses, and one (1) to three (3) teaching or practice hours per week for the duration of one semester for the other forms of teaching, according to the relevant

decisions by the Department’s General Assembly. The Department’s Curriculum specifies the minimum of Greek credits required for the awarding of the academic degree. The Department’s General Assembly is the competent body for establishing the Department’s Curriculum. The Curriculum is revised annually, every April, by the Curriculum Committee (consisting of members of and appointed by the Department’s General Assembly, for a 1-year term), which makes the relevant recommendations to the General Assembly. In recent years, the Higher Education Institutions also organise their undergraduate and postgraduate curricula according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (E.C.T.S.), so that the curricula could be specifically described, as to their educational “components” and activities, by means of credits, and that the students’ successful academic performance could be accumulated, transferred to and recognised by other study programmes of the same or another H.E.I., at both national and European level. The E.C.T.S.-credits system is based on the workload required for students to achieve the objective goals of a particular study programme, taking into consideration its learning results and the knowledge, competences and skills expected to have been gained upon its successful completion. The General Assembly is the Department’s competent body for awarding the E.C.T.S.-credits. Examination periods There are three (3) examination periods: in February, June, and September.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 3. UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES – STUDIES REGULATION

Teaching is divided in semester-long courses and includes: 1) the actual teaching of a course, 2) tutorials and tutorial exercises, 3) studio exercises and, more generally, the students’ practice, and 4) the supervision of diploma dissertations and the holding of seminars and/or other similar activities aiming at expanding and deepening the students’ knowledge.

Each course is examined at the end of the semester it was taught and, additionally, during the September period. Students are not allowed to enrol to and be examined in required courses of later semesters, unless they have been successfully examined in the prerequisite required courses of earlier semesters, the syllabus of which has been decided by the Department’s General Assembly to be a prerequisite for attending and being examined in required courses of later semesters, according to the Department’s Curriculum and Courses Timetable.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 3. UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES – STUDIES REGULATION

Following a failed examination of a prerequisite required lecture or studio course of earlier semesters, the syllabus of which is meant as a prerequisite for attending and being examined in required courses of later semesters, students are allowed to enrol in the same course during a following academic semester.

32

Student projects 1. Students execute, in the attended Studio premises, and submit in time the student projects determined by their professor. 2. At the end of each academic year, between June 10 and 15, an exhibition of the Studio students’ projects is held, whether in the Studio premises or at another suitable venue of the Department. The projects to be exhibited are selected by the T&R Staff of the respective Studio. 3. The graduating students’ diploma dissertations, having been reviewed and graded by the jury, are exhibited at the A.S.F.A. premises for two (2) days. 4. The Department’s Secretariat announces to the students of the Department of Fine Arts the dates of the artworks’ exhibition and is responsible for the smooth operation of the venues holding the exhibition during that time.

Educational field trips The Department’s Curriculum includes field trips to Greece and abroad, which, in academic terms, are equivalent to seminars. The field trips are organised by the teaching staff and approved by the A.S.F.A. Senate. Participation in the field trips is not mandatory; however, students are accredited two (2) Greek credits for each field trip they participate in. Erasmus students are, generally, not participating in the Department’s field trips, unless the Department’s competent bodies decide otherwise, and on condition that this free benefit for the Department’s students stays within the limits of the approved budget and the Institution’s annual expenditure margins. The Department’s Secretariat The Secretariat of the Department of Fine Arts is responsible for providing administrative and secretarial support to the Department’s teaching and research work, especially with regard to keeping the registry and personal files of the students, proceeding to the students’ registration and renewal of registration, the graduates’ admission following the “Classifying examinations”, the organisation and holding of term and graduating examinations, the filing and announcement of grading notes, initiating the procedure for the awarding of “I.K.Y.” (State Scholarships Foundation) scholarships, issuing itemised grades and certifications of enrolment and completion of studies, etc. It is also responsible for providing information to students and the general public, meeting the requirements of the Department’s Curriculum and keeping up with its eventual amendments, and supervising and coordinating the Department’s teaching activities, especially with regard to issues pertaining to forwarding to the Institution’s central

Painting Division Division’s Director: Nikolaos Navridis, Professor

The Painting Division is the largest division –in terms of number of students and teaching staff alike– of the Department of Fine Arts. It is structured upon many division studios, the teaching work of which is complemented by the elective studio courses. The Painting Division, having secured the necessary environment, offers its students a comprehensive education programme, which systematically cultivates their artistic personality and enhances their research efforts in the field of art expression. At present, the operation of nine (9) different painting studios reflects the extensive pluralism of the art education offered at the A.S.F.A., in general, and the Painting Division, in particular, ensuring that its students enjoy freedom of expression and a multitude of choices during their studies. The Division’s annual ordinary General Assembly distributes the teaching work to the T&R Staff, by order of academic rank, according to the provisions of the relevant Law and the Internal Rules of Operation, while the Studios’ Directors organise and update their respective Studios’ annual teaching programme and syllabus. The Department’s and Division’s elective studio courses also provide students with additional, specialised knowledge in a number of disciplines, expanding their creative experience and giving them a taste of a large array of fields, from specialised traditional techniques to the new media and technologies used in the visual arts; thus, students undergo a multifaceted and comprehensive art and professional education, and enjoy the respective increased prospects.

Number of students: n = 48 / n+2 = 11 / total: 59

Director: Anastassios Christakis, Professor Ioannis Kontaratos, Lecturer The 5-year studies are divided into three periods: A. Analytical period: 1st to 4th semester B. Synthetic period: 5th to 8th semester C. Diploma dissertation period: 9th & 10th semester Note: The above correspondence of periods and semesters of studies may apply in the majority of students, but is not an absolute standard, as, in some exceptional cases, students may enter Period C during their 4th year of studies.

ANALYTICAL PERIOD

1st & 2nd semester • Visual reading: Discussion observing a life model, pointing out the lines, shapes, and emerging relations, understanding the character of forms. • Linear drawing (after a life model): Understanding the character of the movement of the line as an independent force and as a limit of the form. • Screening on the following topic: The drawing as form and language, as a cultural factor in interpreting the world, from the prehistoric years to the present; the purpose of the screening is to help students gain a better understanding of the above exercise. • Introduction to colour: Composition with geometric shapes, with reference to the book The Art of Color by Johannes Itten, as a practical and expressive process. • Colour study in oil, after a life model, in

3rd & 4th semester • The results, in terms of students’ progress, achieved during the 1st year of studies largely define, for the 2nd year, the exercises that would re-examine or expand the understanding of fundamental issues of the visual language, i.e. the perceptionanalysis-transfer of the visual phenomenon. • Use of new materials for 2D- (surface) and 3D-works, sculptures, constructions; use of computers, video, photography, expanding the field of studies and expression. • Comparing different works by the same student and works by different students as a means to overcome whatever boundaries and particularities of the shape and form language issues arising from a certain common choice; the comparison also serves to point out those concepts or problems of space, structure, form and content that are common, regardless of the means of expression. • Screenings on specific areas of the History of Art, discussions on specific books or monographs on artists, and the students’ task to talk about their work, are all done in the purpose to help broaden their visual culture and encourage them to begin to recognise the morphological characteristics of their works and articulate clearly their visual subject.

SYNTHETIC PERIOD

52

5th to 8th semester • All studies pursued and experiences gained over the previous two years enable students to overview and assess their progress and commitment, and to better understand their place within the Studio’s community. • At the beginning of the 5th semester, students are asked to submit in writing (1 page) the reasons they have chosen to study in a specific field of the visual arts. Such field is determined as a result of discussions on the students’ work and their own efforts, during the examinations of the previous 4 semesters, to reflect upon and talk about their artworks. • The selection of means of expression and of a specific visual orientation comes as a result of discussion, taking into consideration the students’ personal experiences and –even more– their overall character makeup. • Attendance and exercises are personalised; group exercises are intended as “agents provocateurs” against the students’ relaxing in their vigilance after making the above decision, or to detect other allusions or insinuations. • The coexistence of various forms of studies reflects the visual pluralism of our times, leads to a certain “chaos”, but also provides a number of very significant advantages. It helps defend the subjective nature of art, the students’ respective personal creative path, cultivates their efforts to discover their own artistic identity, generates dialectics, and enriches the students’ culture in both images and ideas, at the same time ensuring that no misunderstanding is made as to the stereotype of a “single way” to do things. • The media-free exercise brings students to face the pros and cons of their choice, and of other students’ choices. It makes them understand that visual-art quality is achieved through consistency in execution, regardless of the chosen media. Diversity

forces students to formulate their objections as to the other students’ visual language and quality of work.

DIPLOMA DISSERTATION PERIOD

9th & 10th semester After four years of studies, by the end of the 8th semester –and in some exceptional cases, even by the end of the 6th semester–, students have settled on the course to follow, on their specific visual-art field of action and further research. Each student has his or her own room for concentrating and working. Discussions are exclusively focused on the students’ respective field of research, while professors also suggest books and other sources that will help students in the research for their work. P.S. Art education is a complex, ever-evolving process that cannot be conquered by merely sticking to a prescribed methodology and educational system. Each day is a new day, and we are thankful to face the new, vital questions it brings along. Provided we are aware of the miracle of life –and, thus, of Art–, we must be open to new discoveries and, accordingly, to the possibility of a complete refutation of our previous views.

SUGGESTED READING MATERIAL Students are entitled to a number of free books, to be selected among a suggested bibliography on visual arts, art theory, history of art etc. In the case of the 8th Painting Studio, such references include, but are not limited to, titles by Theodor W. Adorno, Nelson Goodman, Tony Godfrey, Arthur C. Danto, Giulio Carlo Argan, Nathalia Brodskaya, Neil Cox, Matthew Gale, David Blaney Brown, André Malraux etc.

Director: Nikolaos Navridis, Professor Eftychios Patsourakis, Adjunct Professor (P.D. 407/1980) The 9th Painting Studio (focused on Multimedia and Combined Media) was established during the academic year 2008-2009. Students attending the Studio are encouraged to specialise –through their work, active participation and involvement– in a wide range of Multimedia and Combined Media. Such media, both digital and analog, include, but are not limited to, the following: • Drawing and the drawing process in general. • Installations in space. • Film. • Video (video art and its derivatives). • Animation – Animated cartoon. • Photography (analog photography, digital prints, synthesised imagery). • Sound (sound art – installations). • Performances. 1st unit of studies (Covering the 1st & 2nd year of studies.) • Particular emphasis is put on drawing, studio projects, painting, and personal projects proposed by the students, besides the studio projects. • Deals with drawing techniques and analysing, recording and processing methods, preparing students to deal with all kinds of subjects, through the exploration of modern ways of visual expression. • Free use of materials and of methods of recording, approach and expression.

Description Drawing – Painting: This part of the course focuses on basic drawing principles. It deals with drawing and its potential (outline, open figure, surface, models, accumulation, movement, rhythm, transposition, repetition, the concept of time in drawing etc.). Teaching involves exercises and studio projects. Study on the limitations of drawing. From representational drawing to the strategy of the representation’s narrative. Visual expression methods. The drawing process as a broader process of organising and formulating an expression language. Free use of means, research, experimentation. Studio projects – Students’ projects: Discourse, image, text, narrativity. (Free use of different forms of art.) Before the presentation and during the preparation of the projects, discussions take place and the students give their opinions and argue on their choices and decisions as to the way they treated and developed the subjects. All discussions regarding the evolution phases of the projects take place in the Studio’s hall, in the presence of the semester’s entire team. Upon project completion, students undertake the responsibility of organising and holding the final exhibition, where their works are going to be assessed. Purpose and desired learning outcomes • Besides the drawing and painting values, students understand the uniqueness and quality of drawing and the relevant materials. Furthermore, they understand traditional concepts, methods, techniques and values as strategies for formulating and processing concepts that would ultimately be developed

2nd unit of studies (Covering the 3rd & 4th year of studies.) • Emphasis is put on the studio projects and the students’ projects, i.e. the subjects students choose to undertake as home assignments. • Activities are divided as follows: Studio projects 50% – Students’ projects 50%. Description • During the above semesters, students work on studio projects and projects of their own choice, defend their choices and present their work to the entire team participating in the semester’s project.

• During the meetings, the Studio’s team proceeds to theoretical approaches, research, discussions, and presentations of individual artists or groups of artists whose work has marked the contemporary visualart scene. • Particular emphasis is put to each student’s personal choices of subject, as well as the process of documenting such choices and presenting them to the Studio’s students from all years of studies. Purpose and desired learning outcomes • Developing the students’ skills in observing and analysing the phenomena that form up the visual language, and perceiving its expressive boundaries. • Enabling students to understand the methods and practices used by modern visual language in formulating its concepts. • Selective studying of the art and visual fields of the 20th century (especially its second half) and identifying artists, trends, ideas, works, attempts etc., that are believed to coincide with each student’s views and have influenced in general his or her artistic proposal. • The visual language is in fact a means for one to perceive the social reality (in which it always takes shape), but also the interpersonal or inner psychological environment (which it carries, projects, and reproduces) and comment thereupon. • Defining the students’ specific field of interests and enabling them to develop, by means of their works, a personal way of expressing themselves, of developing and formulating their views. • Helping students present and defend publicly their works and views. • Helping students expand the range of materials they use and, technically-wise, their field of applications. • Free experimentations on expressing and


formulating concepts, by means of various expressive methods and techniques, and alternative media.

Description Each student chooses and proposes a project (a personal, independent proposal) which he or she will develop, execute and present as a diploma dissertation. The process of defining the diploma dissertation proposal focuses on the following: • Researching and gathering background material regarding the theoretical documentation and the development of the project. • Presenting the process and the final result alike. • Free choice of means and materials (students are free to suggest eventual collaborations with other fields in the finalisation of their project). Purpose and desired learning outcomes • Developing, as much as possible, a personal visual discourse on a specific subject field. • Exploring, by means of the work, the multifaceted expressive character of communication through art. • Gathering as much relevant information

and references as possible, in order for students to defend their diploma dissertation. • Helping students present and defend publicly, on the occasion of their diploma dissertation presentation, their personal views, regarding their overall visual quests. • Preparing students to face the labour market. Assessment criteria • Development, completeness, discourse clarity, quality, installation and presentation of the project: 60%. • Documentation, theoretical paper, dissertation defence: 40%.

SUGGESTED READING MATERIAL Students are entitled to a number of free books, to be selected among a suggested bibliography on visual arts, art theory, history of art etc. In the case of the 9th Painting Studio, such references include, but are not limited to, titles by Gilles Deleuze, Nikos Daskalothanassis, Patrick Brantlinger, Friedrich Kittler, Tony Godfrey, Laurence Bertrand Dorleac, Vilém Flusser, Platon Rivellis, Martin Esslin, Martin Heidegger, Ludwig Wittgenstein etc.

Sculpture Division Division’s Director: Georgios Houliaras, Professor

Besides its three main Studios, the Sculpture Division also operates a number of auxiliary workshops, focused on various sculpture materials and techniques, such as the marble-working, metalworking, woodworking workshops and the ceramics studio. By attending the above auxiliary workshops, together with the acquisition of new techniques and practice on different materials, students also have the opportunity to apply to a new material the knowledge and expertise gained at the main Studios, broaden their visual horizons and finally opt for the specific material most suitable for their own personal artistic quest.

Note on the number of students: n = the number of students not exceeding 5 years of studies n+2 = the number of students of up to 7 years of studies The relevant data regard the academic year 2010-2011.

During the ten (10) semesters of studies, students attending the 1st Sculpture Studio execute exercises, both theoretical (focused on ideas and meanings) and practical (focused on forms and materials), aiming to enable each of them to design, realise, assess and approach within its historical context of references their personal work.

58

From the 1st to the 8th semester, students execute sculpture and drawing exercises aiming at their familiarisation with the visual language and its materials, as well as plastic exercises in the form of studies after a life model or on a free subject (representational and abstract art) with the use of materials that can be shaped or carved (clay, plaster, plasticine, wax, ceramic materials, silicones, woods, metals). The courses also include: • Exercises with the combined use of multiple media and materials (installations, video installations, events, performances, constructions), the use of any material, readymades, collages, free experimentations, group projects. • Drawing exercises and planning of the execution and realisation (production) of an artwork or project (financial and technicalmaterial planning), personal quests and research regarding the work of each student.

The other fields and topics that we are going to deal with, at an introductory level, during the studies at the 1st Sculpture Studio, include: • Sculpture and the visual arts vis-à-vis the moving image, photography, colour, architecture, the urban environment, the natural environment, the public space, the landscape, the monument, randomness. • Art beyond the potential of materials, the “real” compact object – the theoretical object, mental objects – sacred objects, the body as part of a material, time, the fleetingness of experience. • The artwork and its respective context (historical, social, financial, psychological). • The artwork and space, audience, communication, behaviours. • The artwork and its mechanical reproduction. • The process of art criticism: What is the artist’s role and say in it? • The scenario in the visual arts. • The traditional concept of artwork, the concept of collectable, investment value, art museums, art products, art market. • Artists and their professional prospects. Students of all semesters attend theoretical lectures on the history of art, sculpture and the aesthetics, as well as presentations on artists, art movements and particular exhibitions that have marked contemporary art. The course is structured upon the following main axes: a subject is given and then follows an open discussion with the participation of all the Studio’s students. Then, students present their ideas and draft stud-


During the 9th and 10th semester, students prepare their diploma dissertation. The issues examined include the planning, execution and presentation of the dissertation project, while the students’ personal work is also approached critically, philosophically, and historically. Finally, students learn how to plan and produce a portfolio and how to exhibit their works.

The 1st Sculpture Studio is fully equipped with all necessary tools and possesses all necessary premises for the creation of visual art works, while students can also borrow the available digital equipment. The Studio’s students also participate in various workshops, field trips, and visits to museums and exhibitions.

SUGGESTED READING MATERIAL Students are entitled to a number of free books, to be selected among a suggested bibliography on visual arts, art theory, history of art etc. In the case of the 1st Sculpture Studio, such references include, but are not limited to, titles by Tony Godfrey, Michel Foucault, Françoise Dolto, Jean Baudrillard, Eric Hobsbawm, Arthur C.

ies, which are assessed and discussed, in groups or with each student individually; the subject is approached theoretically by researching relevant references and the work of other artists or art movements, while the issues of technical support, execution and exhibition of the project are also examined. Students present and defend their project in front of the entire Studio team and are solely responsible for the final outcome. The presentation is followed by a discussion with the professors, with the active participation of all the other students. The same method is also followed in the case of personal projects on subjects selected by the students themselves.

The Studio’s students also actively participate in exhibitions, in Greece and abroad, in cooperation with the relevant organising bodies of the respective universities and other institutions.

The five year-length of studies is divided into three units of sculpture studies.

During the second unit, covering the 5th to 8th semesters, which requires the students’ familiarisation with the basic sculpture principles, teaching advances to more complex forms of sculpture, like sculpture installations, providing for the coexistence of multiple forms such as: video, digitallyprocessed material, photographs and actions. During the third unit, covering the 9th and 10th semester, students probe further into the selected subjects and the execution of their diploma dissertation. During the entire duration of their studies, the Studio’s students attend regular lectures, conducted either by their professors or by guest speakers, on the history of sculpture and related fields such as: cinema, theatre,

1st to 6th semester of studies From the first to the sixth semester, up to their third year of studies, that is, students execute on a daily basis, from 9:00 to 14:00, exercises after a life model. Such exercises aim at the students’ studying the various dimensions and their inter-relations, the organisation of volumes and levels, practicing in observation and drawing, and reporting the observed life model into a sculptural entity. Furthermore, students are assigned subjectbased projects (four of them during each academic year) aiming at cultivating and developing their skills in various sculpturerelated fields – for example, morphological or conceptual exercises, sculptural interventions in architectural spaces, both public and private, as well as sculptural exercises on literary texts of distinguished writers (2 projects per semester). 7th & 8th semester of studies Covering a wide range of sculptural quests, and in constant dialogue with their professors, students are directed during the 7th semester (or, more generally, during the fourth year of studies) towards more personalised exercises, preparing them for their diploma dissertation at the end of their studies. 9th & 10th semester of studies Diploma dissertation. The overall effort aims to provide students

with knowledge –both technical and aesthetic– on their subject and convince them that Sculpture is a journey to self-knowledge, which makes it all the more significant, in the sense that the truer it is, the more genuine and unique it will become. Drawing for sculptors course Sculpture students are asked to execute a series of exercises on the human figure (after a life model), on various other still-life models and objects, as well as spaces (both natural and architectural ones), in order to be introduced to the drawing process, as a means to better and more fully understand their own field, i.e. Sculpture. Such exercises aim at developing the students’ sense of observation, cultivating their visual memory, enabling them to acquire both analytical and synthetic skills, useful to the organisation and execution of their work. Further exercises help students develop their personal style, as well as form and expand their visual perception, in order to ultimately establish their personal art idiom. Analysis of and discussion on selected drawings by important artists from the History of Art also contributes to the sculpture students’ broader culture, enabling them at the same time to better perceive drawing as an independent and accomplished art form.

Printmaking Division Division’s Director: Vassiliki Tsalamata, Associate Professor

The purpose of the Printmaking Division is to educate students in the aesthetic and expressive values of printmaking, by means of creative practice and theoretical approaches alike. Through this educational process, students are initiated to both traditional and modern methods and techniques, in order to discover new forms of visual art expression, develop their ingenuity and perfect their skills. This is the general direction in which all the Division’s professors pour their efforts, knowledge and expertise.


There are two main groups of students attending the Division’s studios and courses. The first one consists of those students having enrolled at the elective studio course “Elements of Printmaking”, while the second one consists of those majoring in Printmaking. The “Erasmus / Socrates” student mobility programme’s students, for their part, are respectively admitted according to the curricula of their home institutions.

Students are divided into the Division’s two Studios, where, for teaching expedience reasons, they are also assigned to specific professors, depending on the specific field or discipline, as shown in the following syllabus. Courses in screen printing and lithography are taught by the same teaching staff at both Studios, and are offered equally to students majoring in Printmaking or students attending it as an elective course.

Note on the number of students: n = the number of students not exceeding 5 years of studies n+2 = the number of students of up to 7 years of studies The relevant data regard the academic year 2010-2011.

The “Elements of Printmaking” elective studio course corresponds to 12 teaching hours per week; approximately 200 students enrol at it annually, of which about 180 (90%) attend courses regularly. The main Printmaking Division courses correspond to 20 teaching hours per week and admit approximately 50 students, of which about 35 (70%) attend the courses on a regular basis, while the remaining 30% of “dropouts” consists mainly of students pursuing a second academic degree, who, for various reasons (family or professional obligations etc.), become more and more scarce or fail to attend at all.

From the 1st to the 6th semester, students execute sculpture and drawing exercises aiming at their familiarisation with the visual language and its materials, as well as plastic exercises in the form of studies after a life model or on a free subject (representational and abstract art) with the use of materials that can be shaped or carved (clay, plaster, plasticine, wax, ceramics, silicones, woods, metals). The courses also include: • Exercises with the combined use of multiple media and materials (installations, video installations, events, performances, constructions), the use of any material, ready-mades, collages, free experimentations, group projects. • Drawing exercises and planning of the execution and realisation (production) of an artwork or project (financial and technical-material planning), personal quests and research regarding the work of each student. • Exercises focused on the multiple approaches and ways of visual formulation, and study of various practices in contemporary art. Other fields and topics covered, at an introductory level, during this studio course, include:


Students of all semesters attend theoretical lectures on the history of art, sculpture and the aesthetics, as well as presentations on artists, art movements and particular exhibitions that have marked contemporary art. The course is structured upon the following main axes: a subject is given and then follows an open discussion with the participation of all the studio’s students. Then, students present their ideas and draft studies, which are assessed and discussed, in groups or with each student individually; the subject is approached theoretically by researching relevant references and the work of other artists or art movements, while the issues of technical support, execution and exhibition of the project are also examined. Students present and defend their project in front of the entire studio team and are solely responsible for the final outcome. The presentation is followed by a

discussion with the professors, with the active participation of all the other students. The same method is also applied in the case of personal projects on subjects selected by the students themselves. The studio’s students participate in various workshops, field trips, and visits to museums and exhibitions. The “Elements of Sculpture” elective studio course is offered by the 1st Sculpture Studio, which is fully equipped with all necessary tools and possesses all necessary premises for the creation of visual art works, while students can also borrow the available digital equipment.

1.1. Methodology and aesthetics of the digital artwork 1.2. Narrative – Screenplay – Multi-scenario – Programming Instructor: Matthaios Santorinaios, Assistant Professor

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 4. STUDIOS’ & COURSES’ SYLLABUS

This teaching unit aims at introducing students to the methodology and aesthetics of the digital artwork, before enabling them to further probe into this field. The concept of Digital Environment is at first presented and explained, with its differences from its analog counterpart being analysed next. By means of examples of artworks, students are taught the history of the new media, from video art to interactive artworks in a real space and on the Internet, the virtual and enhanced reality, the artificial entities, even games and the social web on the Internet. (Teaching of a great part of this unit has formed the basis of an independent course, namely the “History of the New Media”, at the Department of Art Theory and History of Art of the A.S.F.A., which students of the Department of Fine Arts are free to enrol at and attend.)

86

At the same time, the concept of narrative as a basic structure of the multimedia and audiovisual work is also examined: students follow courses on screenplay, multi-scenario, project planning, while programming is presented as a special form of writing, affecting the final technical structure of the work and its outcome, thus directly determining, most of the times, the audience’s reactions. By means of presentations of artworks and exercises at every stage of the creative process (initial idea, screenplay, multi-scenario, programming), in cooperation with the other teaching units, students acquire the necessary scientific, technical and artistic foundations

for creation in the specific environments of the course’s field. The outline of the syllabus of units 1.1 and 1.2 during the 1st and 2nd semesters is as follows: 1.1. Introduction to the Digital Culture: • Differences between Digital and Analog Culture. • The Digital Culture’s basic tools and environment: the computer, the network, the Internet. • Human-machine interaction tools (interfaces). The “genealogy” of various programmes and their creative combination. Open-source software. • Ideology and aesthetics. Introduction to the creation of digital artworks (Internet, interactive installations, virtual and enhanced reality artworks, digital games). 1.2. • Basic principles of screenplay development. • Basic principles for the development of a multi-scenario (non-linear narrative) for an interactive artwork. • Basic principles for the development of software intended for non-linear-narrative artworks. • Basic principles for the use of interactive systems in the creation of artworks (experimentations with microcontroller systems and sensors). • Basic principles for the development of a digital artwork project. The outline of the syllabus of units 1.1 and 1.2 during the 3rd and 4th semesters is as follows: • Development of a specialised digital artwork project.


The outline of the syllabus of units 1.1 and 1.2 during the 5th and 6th semesters is as follows: Cooperation with each student individually (or with a group of students), with a view to the completion of the specialised digital artwork project already undertaken, or development and execution of a new project, calling for an in-depth exploration of issues regarding the artistic and technological integration and completion of a digital artwork. Each student completes and presents his or her personal (or group) combined artwork project, undertaken into one of the following fields: interactive video, interactive artworks in a real space, Internet artworks, and virtual and enhanced reality artworks. Furthermore, students present their research on resolving

specialised technical or aesthetic problems, necessary for completing the specific project. Students also attend the relevant seminars of unit 4: • Seminar on Internet multi-user spaces. • Seminar on interactive interfaces with sensors. (Seminars are open to students from all semesters, provided they have the required knowledge to attend them.)

to the better understanding of the medium’s expressive potential and the analysis of the basic elements of formulation of the audiovisual language, as to its composition and components, such as image, sound and editing.

Structure The course presents and analyses all the stages of the creation of a video-art work, from the visualisation of the initial idea and the necessary preliminary work (pre-production), to the production stage, and the work’s editing to its final form (post-production: selection of “useful” shots, digital editing and processing of the moving image and synchronised soundtrack, the work’s time structuring / rhythm, one-channel projection or projection into space – installation), with emphasis put on the aesthetic and visual organisation of the work.

Particular emphasis is put: • on the organisation and execution of projects in the context of the studio course, focusing on basic expressive, composition, narrative and technical issues put by the specific medium. • on the organisation and execution of personal projects (video and video-installations), in the context of the studio course, with the teaching staff’s supervision and support, as to the structure, organisation, composition, aesthetics, narrative and technical issues arising at all production stages.

Furthermore, the course also provides for the presentation and analysis of video-art works of the visual avant-garde, from the 1960s to the present, and examples from both the experimental and narrative cinema, with a view

Assessment Students are assessed on the basis of the required projects they execute in the context of the studio course. Their attendance and active participation are also taken into consideration.


Instructor: Stavroula Zoi, S&LT Staff This teaching unit regards the technical realisation of an artistic proposal combining various digital components used as means of expression (image, video, sound, screenplay programming, composition into space), according to the artistic needs arising from the other teaching units (1. and 2.). Students are initially familiarised with the relevant international practices, by means of presentations of digital artworks and tools. In this context, the basic technical aspects of realising an artwork in a digital environment are explained, namely the design of digital objects, the synchronisation of multiple varied information flows, the concept of interaction, etc. Students are given presentations of and use software packages (e.g. Adobe Flash, Adobe Director, Dassault Virtools, as well as opensource ones, such as openFrameworks, EyesWeb etc.), and also more complex platforms (such as the Apache-PHP-MySQL web platform). Such packages are selected according to the level of the students’ familiarisation with the digital technology, their level of studies (beginners or advanced students, respectively), and the specific needs regarding the execution of student projects. 4.

Manolis Baboussis, Associate Professor Giorgos Totskas, Adjunct Professor (P.D. 407/1980) Alexandros Voutsas, S&LT Staff Giota Khachaturian, STL Staff Webpage: www.photography.asfa.gr Email: ergastphoto@gmail.com

The course explores the creation of artworks with the use of photographic media, whether independently or in combination with other art media. Its goal is to train the students’ gaze with respect to the various aspects of the photographic image. Apart from a dialectic dialogue developed during the course, on the aesthetic approaches to and the technical particularities of the projects students are required to execute, the latter are taught –by means of seminars– the history of the photographic artworks, focusing on their aesthetic and technical aspects. Photographic artworks, whether executed independently or in combination with other art media, are perceived as both ways and means of artistic expression, and are examined in relation to the overall progress of contemporary art. Photographic artworks are an integral part of contemporary art production and the history of art, while photography, in its various forms, is taught as a major discipline in most European and US Fine Art Schools for decades.

Photography studies were first established at the A.S.F.A. during the academic year 19992000; the Course is fully equipped with darkroom, studio, and computer facilities. Photography has expanded and developed our ways of perceiving, analysing and understanding the ever-changing reality around us. The fact that photography produces images makes it at the same time a spiritual means of expression. The photograph of an object, an action or an event is not that object, that action or that event. What changes when something is detached from its original time & space continuum and is recreated in the photographic space? Is this art medium’s nature constant, or does it change in time? The course aims to enable each student to develop his or her own personal creative approach to the means and forms of photographic image, in an interactive relation with painting, sculpture, video art, installations and performances. The course also aspires to attract and further cultivate the students’ interest in the photographic artworks of every form and approach, in a constant dialogue with the aesthetic ideas shaping Art in the 21st century, so that not only can students understand the wide range of possibilities offered by the media in question, but also critically develop their own work. Each of the course’s three teaching units, i.e. the creative, the theoretical and the technical, seek to help students, in the span of 2 to 6 semesters, grasp in visual terms the particularity of forms and means of digital and analog image in art. They seek to identify and arouse all things creative and consciously promote them without offering ready-made solutions. It is of great importance that the teaching of art should acknowledge certain essential values the duration of which lasts for more than just

The Photography Studio Course organises field trips in Greece and abroad. For more detailed information on the course’s syllabus and the Studio’s structure, operation, student projects and activities you can visit the Studio’s webpage: www.photography.asfa.gr 1st & 2nd semester 1. Photography art projects I/II The dialogue developed between the professor and the students, in the presence of all course students, aims at analysing the aesthetic approaches to and the technical particularities of each project students are required to execute and of the free-subject project of the students’ choice. Such dialogue promotes students’ critical thinking on visual issues arising from the viewing of photographic images. This process forms the basis of the course.

Portfolio submission and projects’ exhibition I/II A synthesis of the students’ work, in various formats, is presented at the various exhibitions curated by the Studio. The idea is to introduce students to the experience of the art photography exhibition: an educational experience, where it is important for students to understand the different forms of photographic image, from the framed photograph as an object to photo projections and installations, the photographic work’s exhibition value, the morphological and conceptual dialogue between various means and works, etc. 2.

4. The courses offered during the Fall semesters are not offered during the Spring semesters, and vice versa. Required division studios • The “required division studios” refer to the Painting, Sculpture and Printmaking Studios. • Students must attend and be successfully examined in all required division studios and all required courses, as mentioned in the relevant curriculum tables of the ten (10) semesters of studies. • In the case of the required division studios, the course No 1 (Fall semester) is not a prerequisite for the course No 2 (Spring semester); however, the courses No 1 (Fall semester)

and 2 (Spring semester) are prerequisite courses for the course No 3, and so on. Required elective studio courses • Students must opt for one (1) elective studio course per semester; they must opt for this particular course for at least two (2) consecutive semesters, so that they can finally attend and be examined in up to four (4) pairs of elective studio courses. Students are thus awarded 56 E.C.T.S.-credits (or 72 Greek Credits). It is suggested that such required elective


• The required elective studio course “Elements of Painting” (regardless of numeric suffix) can be attended only by students of the Sculpture or Printmaking Divisions; similarly, the required elective studio course “Elements of Sculpture” (regardless of numeric suffix) can be attended only by students of the Painting or Printmaking Divisions; and the required elective studio course “Elements of Printmaking” (regardless of numeric suffix) can be attended only by students of the Painting or Sculpture Divisions. • The following required elective studio courses: Elements of Painting (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Elements of Sculpture (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Elements of Printmaking (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Drawing (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Ceramics (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Bronze casting – Plaster working (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Photography (Forms of the analog and digital photographic image in contemporary art) (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) can be attended from the 1st to the 8th semester. • The following required elective studio courses: Multimedia-Hypermedia and Video Art (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Fresco and Portable Icons Technique (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Mosaic (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Stage Design (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Graphic Arts, Typography, and the Art of Book (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) can only be attended from the 5th to the 8th semester.

• In the case of the required elective studio courses, the course with the numeric suffix 1 is a prerequisite for attending the course with the numeric suffix 2, and so on; i.e., students must have attended and succeeded in the previous course in order for them to attend the following one. • Any given required elective studio course can normally be attended for no more than six (6) semesters. In case, however, students need to further explore the technical and aesthetic aspects of a medium taught in a specific studio course, with a view to the realisation of their diploma dissertation, they may be exceptionally granted, at the beginning of each academic year, the right to attend and be examined in the studio course in question for a period beyond the above mentioned maximum of six semesters, provided that circumstances allow for such an exception and that the Supervisor of the studio course in question approves in writing such demand. In this case, students are of course awarded the relevant credits, on top of the minimum credits normally required for being awarded their Diploma. Lecture courses (of those offered at the Department of Art Theory & History of Art) • The required lecture courses are as follows: a) History of Art (6 semesters) b) Theory of Space & History of Architecture (4 semesters) c) Introduction to Philosophy and Aesthetics (2 semesters) • The required lecture courses have no prerequisites; i.e. students are not expected to have attended and succeeded in the course bearing the numeric suffix 1 in order for them to attend the course with the numeric suffix 2, and so on.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 5. UNdERgRAdUATE STUdIES CURRICULUm 2011-2012

studio courses are attended during the first eight (8) semesters.

131


• In order to be accredited six (6) credits corresponding to required elective lecture courses, students will have to enrol, attend and be successfully examined in two (2) such courses of one semester each. It is suggested that these two semester-long elective lecture courses are attended during the 7th and 8th semesters of studies. Students of the Department of Fine Arts have a free choice among all courses offered in the annual curriculum of the Department of Art Theory & History of Art, regardless of the semester this course is normally offered at the latter (with the exception of seminar courses).

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 5. UNdERgRAdUATE STUdIES CURRICULUm 2011-2012

Foreign languages Learning one of the two foreign languages for which courses are offered is mandatory. Students are accredited 2 Credits upon completion of all 4 semesters’ courses. In the case of the English Language Course, level A is set as a prerequisite for level B, whereas level B is a prerequisite for level C. In both cases, holders of a Foreign Language Certificate are dispensed and directly awarded the relevant Credits.

132

Courses for those wishing to be appointed to the Secondary Education • Students wishing to teach Art in the Secondary Education (according to Article 14 of Law 1566/1985 and Article 1 of Law 2327/ 1995) must attend the following courses: “Pedagogy”, “Educational Psychology”, “Art Education 1”, and “Art Education 2” (& Practice in Schools). Such courses should be attended during the studies and before the students are awarded their Diploma, because the students’ grading in these courses is taken into consideration when calculating the students’ final diploma grading. Those who do not wish to attend the above courses must formally declare so in writing to the Secretariat.

• Each of the courses “Pedagogy”, “Educational Psychology”, “Art Education 1”, and “Art Education 2” (& Practice in Schools) is taught during a period of one (1) semester; they are offered as follows: Pedagogy, 5th semester, Educational Psychology, 6th semester, Art Education 1, 7th semester, Art Education 2 (& Practice in Schools), 8th semester. Practice in schools, in the context of the “Art Education 2” course, is performed after consulting with the Professor in charge. Diploma dissertation Before formally announcing to the Department’s Secretariat that they are ready to present their dissertation proposal, students must have fulfilled all course requirements, including all required elective studio courses.


Postgraduate Studies Programmes

134


To this day, the Department operates two (2) Postgraduate Studies Programmes (P.S.P.s), leading to the awarding of a “Postgraduate Specialisation Diploma” (P.S.D.) or Master’s Degree:

The “Master in Digital Art forms”

P.S.P., since 1998.

The “Master in Visual Arts” P.S.P.,

since 2004. A third P.S.P., in collaboration with the Université Paris 8, has been approved and is expected to operate during the academic year 2013-2014:

The “Master in Art, Virtual Reality

& Multi-User Means of Artistic Expression” P.S.P.

Note: A key to the abbreviations in use is to be found on page 156. 135


ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 6. POSTGRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAMMES

“MASTER IN DIGITAL ART FORMS” P.S.P.

136

The “Digital Art Forms” (D.A.F.) P.S.P. is mainly oriented towards the education and research in the field of visual art creation, in conjunction with the technical specialisation in the field of Digital Art Forms. The formand image-making possibilities the audiovisual media and computer science offer today, and put at the disposal of the artistic creation, are infinite, while the notion of “combination” is synonymous with the very nature of the new media. The “Digital Art Forms” P.S.P. was planned and established with a view to meeting the educational and specialisation needs of young artists –and, under certain circum-

stances, of scientific researchers– regarding the new, expanded forms and the new means of expression. It offers a combination of artistic and technological education, research methodology, know-how and theoretical knowledge, thus supporting the active participation of its graduates in the artistic process and research – in other words, in the adventure, the events and recent developments of contemporary art. The interdisciplinary character and structure of the P.S.P. in question are dictated by the very nature and rapid progress of the new technological means, in conjunction with the expanded, combined forms of expression that have emerged in contemporary Art. The intersection of Art and Technology is nothing but a common ground, defined by the collaboration between professors teaching (and


Today, more than ever, in art and theory alike, be it in the field of ideas, sciences or research, the notion of interdisciplinarity meets an unprecedented expansion. In Higher Education, and in the context of the efforts made to upgrade and renew the existing curricula, such trend is usually ascribed to and realised by means of “inter-universitary” and interdisciplinary cooperation between academic institutions and professors. From the trunk of “pure” and clearly distinguished disciplines, a great number of interdisciplinary approaches and collaborations have now sprung, branched away, pursuing not merely an “expansion”, but also new possibilities, ways, viewpoints and interpretations, in the context of a combined research process. We all now live in a context of increased and broad interdisciplinarity. Such trend could not leave contemporary art unaffected. Art had always been the melting pot of new social givens, new ideas, scientific breakthroughs and technological innovations. In the early 20th century, such trend was expressed by means of the historic art move-

ment of modernism, which often collided fiercely with corporate mentalities and sectional interests, and faced efforts of retrogression by the established academic art. Summing up, it is fair to say that this interdisciplinary character of the P.S.P. in question is reflected on its own educational structure, even affecting the selection of its teaching staff and students alike. Although that may still sound heretical in the context of an art academy, this is a basic component and a comparative advantage of the educational profile of the P.S.P. in question. Studies of this kind are, without a doubt, more difficult, more demanding, the students’ workload is increased, but, in return, the benefits offered to the graduates are also greater. Graduates of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P. are artists well-equipped, in both theory and practice, to handle the new forms and new means of visual expression, offered by the audiovisual and digital technology. They have acquired a deep and sound theoretical knowledge, but are also practically trained enough to secure their place in the labour market. It is quite telling that, apart from their personal art creation and exhibition activities, many graduates of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P. are currently teaching as appointed T&R Staff members or adjunct professors in many Greek H.E.I.s, many are collaborating with various academic bodies and institutions, some are pursuing their postgraduate studies at a doctoral level, while others are working in the field of design and digital applications.

specialised in) different fields, visual artists, audiovisual artists, scientists, engineers and art theorists. The digital forms and means of expression “demand as a prerequisite the constant collaboration between artists, technical staff and scientists, in order to ensure the transfer of know-how, the students’ education on the basic computer principles and applications, and digital systems in general, and the necessary support of Research & Development programmes in the context of artistic projects”. Naturally, such a postgraduate studies programme also requires the constant harmonious cooperation between students and professors, ensuring in practice the above mentioned “common ground”.

137


1. ADMISSION OF POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS The “D.A.F.” P.S.P. admits graduates, holders of an academic degree by Greek H.E.I.s’ Departments in Fine Arts, Visual Studies, Audiovisual Arts, Applied Arts, and Architecture, as well as holders of a relevant degree by equivalent Departments of the Greek H.T.E.I.s, according to Par. 12c of Article 5 of Law 2916/2001 (Official Gazette 114 vol.1) and of relevant degrees by foreign equivalent accredited H.E.I.s.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 6. POSTGRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAMMES

As an exception, the “D.A.F.” P.S.P. may also admit graduates of other Departments, provided that, apart from all other specified requirements, the candidates’ submitted artistic work gives evidence of an extensive know-how, high artistic value, as well as relevance to the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s orientation.

138

The number of students to be admitted each academic year is specified by the P.S.C. and the S.C.G.A. at the end of the previous academic year, when the relevant Call for Applications is drawn up. The number of students admitted cannot be over twenty (20) and it depends on the available equipment and working-stations’ capacity of the P.S.P. Attending the P.S.P. may, in the future, require some kind of compensatory contribution on behalf of the admitted students, in order for the P.S.P. to cover part of its operational expenditure. To this day, however, studies in the P.S.P. are gratuitous. Criteria for assessing candidates are: • A particular relevance between the candidates’ work and the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s orientation, as well as the overall quality of their artistic work. • The candidates’ familiarity, to a great extent, with the use of modern audiovisual and

digital technology, as means of expression in the context of contemporary art, and their applications in art. • The candidates’ knowledge of at least one (1) foreign language (English or other), as evidenced by the relevant certificates. • The candidates’ efficiency in the theory field, their broader education, culture and maturity, as shown in the personal interview with the Assessment Committee they undergo at the last stage of the assessment. • The candidates’ academic degree grading. The Assessment Committee takes into consideration the candidates’ qualifications, other personal skills and competences, and individuality, particularly weighing in the candidates’ respective needs to further expand and specialise their knowledge and research in the use and development of new-technology means of artistic expression – such needs should already been sufficiently evident in the executed artistic work or proposals submitted by candidates and assessed by the Committee. Depending on which Department candidates have graduated from, the Assessment Committee may decide that certain candidates, before being admitted to the P.S.P., should attend and successfully be examined in a number of additional courses, of those offered in the A.S.F.A. Undergraduate Studies Curriculum. The maximum duration for attending the said additional courses is set at two (2) academic semesters. 2. ADMISSION APPLICATIONS Admission applications are submitted by candidates within the deadlines announced by the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s Secretariat, and should include the following documents:


The Assessment Committee, responsible for assessing and selecting the candidates for admission to the “D.A.F.” P.S.P., takes into consideration each candidate’s qualifications and individuality and calls a small number of candidates for a personal interview. The list of successful candidates is approved by the Department’s S.C.G.A.

3. STUDIES PROGRAMME & CURRICULUM The studies programme and curriculum were planned with a view to meeting the modern educational needs and aim at providing students with the theoretical education, artistic experience, technological skills, and methodology (all necessary in the use of combined, audiovisual, and digital means of expression) required for them to develop their own artistic or interdisciplinary research. The programme extends over a period of four academic semesters and is structured upon three main axes: • Courses and studios aiming at the creation of audiovisual (video, video installations, experimental cinema, virtual environments etc.) or combined works or forms, interactive installations, etc. • Courses and studios regarding research in the field and applications of computer interactive multimedia, as well as the creation of works and environments of virtual reality, interactive platforms, etc. • Purely theoretical courses regarding the Art, History, Theory and Aesthetics of the media. Students are expected to attend all courses and studios of the first two semesters, opt for a specialisation in the 3rd semester, and prepare and present their postgraduate diploma dissertation during the 4th semester. The 4th semester is specifically reserved for the preparation of the postgraduate diploma dissertation, the dual nature of which involves a) the development of an artistic or research project, and b) the submission of a theoretical paper. From the experience gained in the years of operation of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P., it can be safely assumed that the theoretical courses

• 1. Admission application • 2. An artwork portfolio containing: a. a presentation of selected previous works or projects in CD and/or DVD form (for PC) and/or a photographic portfolio, with Α4 or Α3 or 35x50 digital prints. b. a presentation of works or projects with a particular relevance to the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s orientation, in DVD-video (PAL) and/or CD Rom / DVD Rom (for PC) or miniDV form. c. short explanatory notes on the submitted works; these should include: the work’s title, its duration (in case of video-art work or film), the date of its creation, a short description, technical specifications (including the tools & techniques used) and a detailed list of the persons involved in the project (credits). • 3. A certified photocopy of the candidate’s academic degree. (In case of foreign H.E.I. graduates, candidates should also submit an Academic Title Equivalence Certificate issued by the N.A.R.I.C.) • 4. A CV of the candidate, which should include his or her studies, artistic, research or professional activities and any eventual projects with a particular relevance to the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s orientation. • 5. Foreign language certificates (foreign students should have sufficient knowledge of the Greek language). • 6. Certification of the candidate’s computer skills and competences (especially in image-processing, video and 3D-graphics software, programming languages etc.).

139


and preparation of written papers and dissertations have been key to the students’ artistic formation and the expansion and development of their work. (This has been a novelty and an interesting finding, at least during the first years of operation of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P., compared to what was till then customary in the context of the A.S.F.A. studies.)

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 6. POSTGRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAMMES

Theory lecture courses are of major significance in the shaping of a context in which artistic creation can flourish, as evidenced by the way ideas and theories affect the students’ work, despite the common risk of misunderstanding, or even distorting, the exact content of scientific theories and approaches. Nevertheless, it is through artistic creation that the theory of art receives feedback from the work of art and vice versa.

140

Diploma dissertations The students’ diploma dissertations are a significant index for assessing the P.S.P. in question. To this day, postgraduate students have submitted high quality dissertations, many of which can be considered accomplished artistic creations in their own right. They are more than satisfactory in terms of technical perfection, thus testifying the students’ familiarity with the digital media in use, their narrative abilities and competences in developing new means of artistic research, depending on the goals set by their proposal. Postgraduate students are free to choose either a diploma dissertation exclusively focused on their own artistic work and/or research, or to further explore the possibilities offered by the new means of expression and their applications in art, by combining artistic and scientific research, in


Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation Students submit their Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation proposals to the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s Secretariat. The relevant application should include: • an analysis of the dissertation’s topic, • a description of the artistic proposal, • a note on the theoretical field of research, • a note on the technical aspect of the project, • a note from the intended supervisors stating that they accept to supervise the project in question, • a list of scientific collaborators and technical support staff. Postgraduate dissertations may cover topics ranging from very specific issues to combined proposals on a vast field of research and applications: • in the field of artistic and, especially, visual creation; • in the field of applied research; • in a pure research-oriented direction of interdisciplinary nature (on the common ground or intersection of art, theory and science, as defined by the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s intended aims). In any case, the postgraduate diploma dissertation is required to be of a combined nature: • Theoretical part (written paper, analysis) • Artistic part (art work and/or application proposal) • Technical part (research, integration and use of new technical means in the art work).

Postgraduate diploma dissertations are supervised by a 3-member committee of “D.A.F.” P.S.P. professors: a theorist, responsible for supervising the theoretical written paper, an artist, supervising the art work, and a third member, of the postgraduate student’s choice, according to the specific needs of the project. More generally, students are free to choose the members of the supervising committee among the teaching staff of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P., on the basis of the specific and overall needs of the dissertation’s subject and taking into consideration a number of factors, namely the long term possibility of a fruitful cooperation between the students and their supervisors, their availability, their specific knowledge in a certain field or their broader culture etc. Students are free to choose their supervisors among all members of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s T&R Staff, regardless of course or semester. In case an adjunct professor or visiting staff of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P. is asked to supervise a dissertation, then another member of the T&R Staff must also join the committee. On the other hand, the committee may also ask visiting staff of the P.S.P. to participate in the dissertations’ supervision and the students’ guidance. The reviewing, assessment and grading of the postgraduate diploma dissertation are made by an assessment committee consisting of members of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s T&R Staff, which, following the dissertation’s presentation by the student and the relevant recommendation by the 3-member supervising committee, weighs in the artistic proposal, the theoretical paper and the project’s technical achievement. Members of the Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation’s assessment committee, among the members of the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s T&R Staff, are selected with a

view to covering the entire research & development field of the dissertation’s subject. The final results are approved by the Department’s P.S.C. and S.C.G.A.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 6. POSTGRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAMMES

Grading The final grading of the Postgraduate Specialisation Diploma (P.S.D.) is calculated as the sum of the average grading of all courses of all semesters attended by the student, multiplied by a factor of 0.75, and of the Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation’s grading multiplied by a factor of 0.25. The Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation has a combined research nature, consisting of an artistic work-proposal and a theoretical paper, and is graded by taking into consideration both of them. The grading corresponds to a scale of 0 to 10; a minimum grade of 5 is required for success. According to the “D.A.F.” P.S.P.’s own grading system, a grading from 5 to 6.95 corresponds to a description of “Good”; a grading from 6.96 to 8.65 corresponds to a description of “Very Good”; and a grading from 8.66 to 10 corresponds to a description of “Excellent”.

142

4. STUDIES REGULATION • Postgraduate studies at the “D.A.F.” P.S.P. are conducted according to the system of semester-long courses. Each academic year’s teaching work is structured into two (2) academic semesters (i.e. Fall semester and Spring semester), the exact dates for the beginning and end of which are defined following a relevant decision by the S.C.G.A. The length of each academic semester should comprise at least 13 weeks of actual teaching. • The staff teaching courses and studio exercises is appointed following a relevant decision by the S.C.G.A.

• The postgraduate courses workload is expressed in (Greek education system) “Credits”. Each “Greek credit” corresponds to one (1) teaching hour per week for the duration of one semester. • The minimum duration of studies at the “D.A.F.” P.S.P., required for the awarding of the P.S.D., is set to four (4) semesters. • The maximum duration of studies at the “D.A.F.” P.S.P., for the awarding of the P.S.D., is set to two (2) years. As a general rule, this may not be prolonged. In extraordinary cases, it is possible for students, following a fully founded decision by the P.S.C. and the P.S.P.’s Head or the Department’s General Assembly, to briefly prolong their maximum period of studies for up to one (1) year. • At the end of each semester, the P.S.P.’s students undergo examinations in all courses taught during said semester. Their assessment and grading may be partially or entirely based on the preparation of an art work or project or the successful completion of studio exercises. • If, during the examinations held at the end of each semester, students fail in more than two courses, they are not entitled to enrol at the following semester and are expelled from the P.S.P.

The “Master in Visual Arts” (“V.A.”) Postgraduate Studies Programme was created to respond to the needs for a prolongation of the undergraduate studies of the Department of Fine Arts and with a view to organise teaching conditions in a way that could lead to a new impetus in visualart thinking. The “V.A.” P.S.P. forms a conversational community which inspires and facilitates the art process towards the development and deepening of the work of new artists, while cultivating their self-knowledge as a means for them to gain their independence. The Masters’ knowledge and expertise, regarding both artists and theorists, meet the creative vigour of young artists, thus defining an intellectual common ground with a role of catalyst in the formation of artworks.

The Athens School of Fine Arts, the history of which coincides with the history of the Modern Greek State, restructures and enriches its institutional role, by encouraging new procedures of art education and research. The idea for the establishment of the “V.A.” P.S.P. (conceived several years ago and materialised in 2004, as a result of a number of conditions met and necessary measures taken, such as the Institution’s staffing in the fields of Philosophy, Aesthetics, Art Theory and History of Art, the conjuncture enabling a financial support by means of the O.P.E.I.V.T. II, as well as the establishment of the Department of Theoretical Art Studies) paved the way for expanding the scientific community of the A.S.F.A. The “V.A.” P.S.P. aims to ensure the organisation of a research and dialogue field suitable for cultivating the young artists’ critical thinking, regarding their own work and the trends of a

multifaceted “new reality” in the visual arts alike. Facing that new reality which is characterised by an unprecedented hail of different opinions and alternate versions of artistic expression, on one hand, and the advantage of quasi-instantaneous information, on the other, the “V.A.” P.S.P. community enhances the young artists’ creativity and prepares them intellectually in order for them to be able to mark, through their work, their own ground, while keeping up and in constant interaction with the new givens arising from the displacement of boundaries, due to the ever-changing cultural landscape.

1. ADMISSION OF POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS Each year, the “V.A.” P.S.P. admits a maximum of twelve (12) students. Studies are gratuitous.

150

By relevant decisions of the S.C.G.A., the Department defines the procedure of admission, the dates and the applications procedure for the candidates. The S.C.G.A.’s decision regulating the procedure of admission of postgraduate students is made in May and its realisation is relegated to the Coordinating Committee. The selection of postgraduate students is made by a 5-member Committee, consisting of members of the Department’s T&R Staff and formed up following a relevant decision by the S.C.G.A. The Committee considers mainly the following criteria: 1. Five (5) recent artworks of the candidate. 2. The candidate’s academic degree grading. 3. A portfolio of photographs or slides (up to 20). 4. A paper on the artwork’s theoretical approach (up to 2 pages).

5. The candidate’s knowledge of a foreign language. 6. Interview (candidates will undergo a personal interview with the Committee). The list of successful candidates is certified by the S.C.G.A. Foreign candidates should exhibit sufficient knowledge of the Greek language. In case the postgraduate student is not an A.S.F.A. graduate, a number of basic courses from the Undergraduate Studies Curriculum may be also added to the postgraduate courses, following a relevant recommendation of the P.S.P.’s 3-member Admissions Committee and a relevant decision by the S.C.G.A. Postgraduate students may be awarded assisting teaching work, according to the provisions of Article 28 §7 of Law 2083/1992 and following a relevant decision by the Department’s G.A., remunerated on the basis of hourly wages. The relevant expenditure is ascribed to the A.S.F.A. budget. The “V.A.” P.S.P., depending on the relevant funding made available by the State Scholarships Foundation, the Ministry of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs and/or the A.S.F.A., may award to its postgraduate students a limited number of scholarships per year. The amount of the awarded scholarships and the candidates’ selection procedure are specified in the Call for Selection of Postgraduate Students, following a relevant decision by the Department’s S.C.G.A. Postgraduate students participate actively, by means of their legally elected representatives, in the administrative activities of the A.S.F.A. decision-making bodies (G.A., S.C.G.A., Senate, S.C. Senate, Rector’s Council), thus contributing to the better organisation and performance of the administrative and teaching work of the Department and the Institution.


Staff teaching courses and studio exercises are appointed following a relevant decision by the S.C.G.A. The Courses Timetable is drawn up by the P.S.P.’s Coordinating Committee and announced by the P.S.P.’s Secretariat. The teaching staff may suggest, for each of their courses, a list of books and other educational material, as well as relevant bibliography. The postgraduate courses’ workload is expressed in (Greek education system) “Credits”. Each “Greek credit” corresponds to one (1) teaching hour per week for the duration of one semester. The assessment of the postgraduate students’ performance in the courses and studios provided in the “V.A.” P.S.P.’s Curriculum is made by the P.S.P.’s teaching staff. The student’s grading for each course is calculated on the basis of the grading in the final examination at the end of each semester, but also the grading of the exercises and projects conducted during the semester (the relevant factors are specified by the course’s professor). The teaching staff announces the students’ grading within one (1) week after each semester’s final examination. No re-examination period is provided. The grad-

ing corresponds to a scale of 0 to 10, with no decimal digits (unless the grading of a studio course is calculated as the average of the grading awarded by more than one professors, in which case decimal digits are accepted). A minimum grade of 5 is required for success. Following a relevant application by the interested student and a founded decision by the S.C.G.A., the S.C.G.A. may exceptionally set a reexamination period in September, for the student to be re-examined in a maximum of two (2) courses of the first three semesters. Attendance of the courses and studios is mandatory. A maximum of three (3) justified absences is allowed for the entire duration of courses and studios. Students may apply for a temporary suspension of studies (for a period of up to one academic year), in case of serious personal reasons (health issues, for instance); the P.S.P.’s Coordinating Committee examines such demand and makes its recommendation to the S.C.G.A., which is ultimately responsible for deliberating on the matter. Postgraduate students are entitled to a Student Health Care Booklet (unless already insured by another public social security organisation), a Student Transport Pass, and free catering, according to the provisions of Presidential Decree 143/1990 (on the relevant financial and family criteria), as well as to student loans, according to the Ministerial Decision Β7/411/1996. Upon completion of their studies, students are expected to hand over to the Secretariat their Student Health Care Booklet and Student Transport Pass. 3. THE POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA DISSERTATION Postgraduate students are expected to prepare a Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation, the subject of which is to be relevant to the “V.A.” P.S.P.’s field. At the end of the 3rd semester, postgraduate students, in coordination with their super-

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 6. POSTGRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAMMES

2. CONDUCTING TEACHING WORK Postgraduate studies at the “V.A.” P.S.P. are carried out according to the system of semesterlong courses. Each academic year’s teaching work is structured into two (2) academic semesters (i.e. Fall semester and Spring semester), the exact dates for the beginning and end of which are defined each year following a relevant decision by the S.C.G.A. In order to be valid, the length of each academic semester should comprise at least 13 weeks (including a minimum of 11 weeks of actual lecture-course and studio teaching, and 2 more weeks covering special teaching needs and examinations).

151


visor and the P.S.P.’s teaching staff, submit to the P.S.P.’s Coordinating Committee the subject of their Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation, accompanied by a relevant intentions note. They will present their dissertation at the end of the 4th semester.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 6. POSTGRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAMMES

Before submitting and presenting their Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation, students must have succeeded in all seminar and studio courses of the “V.A.” P.S.P.’s Curriculum. In exceptional cases, and provided the Coordinating Committee’s consent is secured, a prolongation may be granted, for students to submit and present their Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation by the month of June of the following academic year.

152

Besides their artwork Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation, students are also expected to present a theoretical paper (up to 10 pages long), regarding the visual subject of their dissertation. The Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation, accompanied by the above theoretical paper, is publicly defended in front of the members of a relevant assessment Committee (including the student’s supervisor, who should be a member of the P.S.P.’s T&R Staff), which is formed following a relevant recommendation by the Coordinating Committee and a decision of the S.C.G.A. The members of the assessment Committee assess and grade the Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation. The grading corresponds to a scale of 0 to 10, with no decimal digits, while a minimum grade of 6 is required for success. The Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation’s final grading is calculated as the average of the grading awarded by the members of the assessment Committee. The criteria used by the above Committee in assessing the Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation are based on the “V.A.” P.S.P.’s intended aims and philosophical orientation: The postgraduate students’ course towards developing and deepening their work, the originality of their personal expressive idiom, the students’

awareness as to the form and content of their work, the novelty in their visual language and their research orientation. In case of failure, students should complete their Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation within three (3) months from the date of the first examination and undergo a second and final examination at a date set by the Coordinating Committee. In case of a new failure, students are expelled by the “V.A.” P.S.P.; they are however entitled to an attendance certificate, for those courses they have successfully attended. 4. POSTGRADUATE SPECIALISATION DIPLOMA The Postgraduate Specialisation Diploma (P.S.D.) is a public document. In order to be awarded the P.S.D., students must have succeeded in all postgraduate courses and the Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation. The grading of the P.S.D. is calculated as the sum of the grading achieved in the P.S.P.’s courses, multiplied by a factor of 0.5, and of the grading of the Postgraduate Diploma Dissertation, multiplied by a factor of 0.5. The grading of the Postgraduate Specialisation Diploma is described as follows: 8.5 to 10: Excellent 6.5 to 8.5 (not included): Very Good 5 to 6.5 (not included): Good The Postgraduate Specialisation Diploma mentions the name of the Department and the H.E.I., the name of the Programme and the subject of specialisation, the period of studies, as well as the achieved grade, which is a number with up to 2 decimal digits. It also mentions the graduate’s name, surname and father’s name, and is signed by the Rector, the Department’s Chairman, the Head of the P.S.P. and the Department’s Secretary. Until the Diploma is officially awarded, P.S.P. graduates may receive a certification attesting the successful completion of their postgraduate studies.

1. The Department of Fine Arts of the Athens School of Fine Arts, in cooperation with the “Département Arts et Technologies de l’Image”, “UFR Arts, philosophie, esthétique”, of the Université Paris 8, is going to operate as of the academic year 2013-2014 a new Postgraduate Studies Programme (P.S.P.), namely the “Master in Art, Virtual Reality & Multi-User Means of Artistic Expression”. 2. The Department of Fine Arts of the Athens School of Fine Arts will be responsible for the administrative support of the P.S.P. with regard to its activities taking

place in Greece, while the Université Paris 8 will be respectively responsible for those taking place in France. A Coordinating Body, consisting of two (2) academic supervisors, each from the two Institutions involved, will be responsible for coordinating the operation of the P.S.P., according to the relevant Special Memorandum of Cooperation (S.M.o.C.). The P.S.P.’s courses will be conducted in Athens and Paris. Object & Purpose of the P.S.P. The P.S.P.’s purpose is to provide its students with competences of a dual nature (i.e. at an

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 6. POSTGRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAMMES

artistic and technical level alike) in the field of digital arts, enabling them to acquire the necessary know-how for the creation of artworks in the following fields:

Duration The duration of studies, required for the awarding of the Postgraduate Specialisation Diploma, is set to four (4) semesters.

Development of artistic and technological projects based on combined platforms of virtual reality multi-user applications. Technology development with a view to the realtime creation of dynamic artistic content.

Studies programme & Curriculum The teaching of courses is to be performed as follows: During the 1st and the 2nd semester, each Institution will teach eight (8) courses, the syllabus of which is divided in two parts – one for each semester. The 3rd semester provides for the teaching of four (4) courses by the A.S.F.A. and seven (7) courses by the Paris 8; one (1) of the above courses will be taught jointly, through the Internet. During the 4th semester, five (5) courses will be taught, one (1) of which will be taught jointly by the two Institutions, through the Internet, while students are also expected to complete their theoretical and practical project. Each semester-long course, regardless of whether it is taught at the A.S.F.A. or the Paris 8, leads to the awarding of 30 ECTS-credits. The selection of courses for each student and, respectively, the order of attendance between the two Institutions (A.S.F.A. or Paris 8) will be decided by a professors’ examination committee, on the basis of each student’s competences and primary needs. In other words, a committee consisting of teaching staff from both Institutions, will decide which students will attend the first year of studies (and the respective courses) in Greece and the 2nd year in France, and vice versa. Students are required to attend one academic year at each Institution.

Postgraduate academic decrees The Joint Postgraduate Studies Programme in Art, Virtual Reality & Multi-User Means of Artistic Expression awards a Postgraduate Specialisation Diploma (P.S.D.) (Master) in “Art, Virtual Reality & Multi-User Means of Artistic Expression”.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 6. POSTGRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAMMES

Each of the two Institutions involved will award a different diploma.

THE A.S.F.A. HISTORICAL ART COLLECTION – THE A.S.F.A. GALLERY

The works of art forming the A.S.F.A. Gallery collection are representative examples of the artistic activity of the professors who have taught in the A.S.F.A. studios, and of the A.S.F.A. students alike; the Gallery also incorporates works donated to the A.S.F.A. In this sense, the A.S.F.A. Gallery is a “living” and ongoing display of the School’s history and, by extension, of a significant part of the Modern Greek Art in general. Collections The A.S.F.A. Gallery includes the following collections: • Paintings • Drawings • Sculptures • Installations • Engravings • Copies of Folk Art works The above collections mainly include students’ works that were either distinguished during the Institution’s exams, or received awards in pan-Hellenic art contests, or were offered by the graduates, as examples of their dissertation project. They also include works of art by significant

artists, donated to the A.S.F.A., and a large number of copies of Greek Folk Art works (mainly paintings and reliefs), executed by students, under their professors’ supervision, during their field trips in various locations around Greece (Pelion, Chios, Mytilene, Skyros, etc.) from 1950 to 1960. Copyright & Permission for use in publications In order for an item of the collection to appear, in any form, in a publication, a relevant permission should be granted by the Athens School of Fine Arts, which, along with the artists who created the works, is the copyright holder for those works. The items may be photographed, by the Gallery itself or the applicant, at the premises of the A.S.F.A. Gallery. Assisting research The A.S.F.A. Gallery is always available to assist researchers, by providing information on its collections – either by phone, email or fax.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 7. A.S.F.A. EDUCATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE

The A.S.F.A. owns and manages an extensive art collection, of significant cultural value. As soon as the Athens School of Fine Arts was established in 1837, a “Gallery” was formed, aiming mainly at collecting the artworks of those involved in the art education provided by the Institution. This collection now includes approximately 8,000 items, representing the art fields of painting, sculpture, printmaking, icon and mosaic art, covering a span of 174 years.

THE A.S.F.A. ANNEXES The Athens School of Fine Arts has six (6) “Annexes”, which are used by the Institution as special educational centres and are operating under their own Rules of Operation, according to the Presidential Decree 169/1988. The Annexes are housed in buildings of particular architectural value and located at places possessing great natural beauty and a significant historical and cultural background. Their operation aims at providing students with additional and specialised training, conducting special workshops (in cooperation and mutual exchange with foreign academic institutions and art centres), assisting students in the preparation of their projects, as well as hosting seminars, exhibitions, lectures, screenings, and other cultural events.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 7. A.S.F.A. EDUCATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE

The A.S.F.A. graduates, as well as members of other Greek and foreign Art Schools, may also use the facilities of the A.S.F.A. Annexes, provided there are vacancies, and at a cost of 12 € per day.

In the case of the Monodendri and Paramythia Annexes, the building plans have been completed and building permits have been secured, while the Parikia Annex is awaiting for the relevant building permit to be issued and the design plans to be completed. Recently (Senate meeting of June 6, 2011), the A.S.F.A. accepted the offer made by the Epirus Regional Governor and the Mayor of Zagori for the cession of an 800m2 municipal building (with a 5,000m2 surrounding open space) at Tsepelovo, in order for an Annex to be established there, instead of the construction of a new building in Monodendri. The A.S.F.A. Administration Department is responsible, among others, for issuing the staying permits for the Annexes, organising student field trips to the Annexes and observing the Annexes’ Rules of Operation (person in charge: Mr. Nikos Zamanis, phone number: +30 210 3897120).

For the last year of studies, the health care insurance is prolonged beyond the end of the academic year, to December 31, for students who have not yet been awarded their academic degree. In case of temporary interruption of the studies (according to the provisions of Law 3549/ 2007), health care insurance is, upon their resumption, prolonged accordingly.

A. Priority is given to the accommodation of students of the following special groups (by order of priority):

217


STUDENT ACCOMMODATION ALLOWANCE Undergraduate (but not postgraduate) students, enrolled with a view to being awarded their first (not a second) academic degree are entitled to a student accommodation allowance amounting to a thousand euros (€1,000) annually; such benefit lasts for a period corresponding to the minimum of years of studies of the attended academic Department. Such allowance may be granted to all undergraduate students members of the same family, if they attend studies at a location different from the one of their main residence, and regardless of whether siblings attend the same H.E.I. in the same location or not, provided they meet all the other criteria set by the law.

ATHENS SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS / 9. STUDENT WELFARE

The conditions for granting the allowance are as follows:

218

1. Students stay, due to their studies, at a rented residence, at a location different from the one of their main residence, and in which they (or their parents) are not proprietors or have the usufruct of another residence (it is worth noting that the Attica Region and the Thessaloniki Urban Area are considered respectively as a single city). Students residing at student residence halls are not entitled to the allowance in question. 2. The students’ enrolment is certified by means of a Certification of enrolment, supplied by their academic Department’s Secretariat, which should also mention in detail the student’s academic year of admission, the minimum of years of studies of the attended academic Department, according to the

H.E.I.’s Rules of Operation, and also attest that the interested student has succeeded in at least half the courses of the previous academic year (or the respective academic semesters), as described in the relevant Curriculum. For students enrolling for the first time in the first year of studies, such certification should only mention their enrolment in the academic Department. 3. The students’ family annual income for the previous year should not exceed the amount of thirty thousand euros (€30,000), increased by three thousand euros (€3,000) for every additional dependent member of the family. The “family annual income” corresponds to the total annual chargeable (real or imputed) income, plus the tax-free or chargeable under special clauses income, of the tax-payer, his or her spouse, and their minor children, regardless of the income’s source. The allowance in question, however, is not to be taken into account when calculating the amount of the family annual income according to which the allowance is to be granted. 4. Students and/or their parents are not the proprietors or have the usufruct of residences (either for private use or renting) exceeding a surface of 200m2, except in the case the residences or apartments are located in a municipality with a population of less than 3,000.


Students are entitled to reduced fares when using public transport. Such benefit lasts for a period corresponding to the minimum of years of studies of the attended academic Department multiplied by a factor of 1.5. Students entitled to such benefit are provided with a Student Passport Pass issued by the Secretariat of their academic Department. The Student Passport Pass is strictly personal and its use by third persons is strictly forbidden.

Students admitted to an academic Department after “classifying examinations” (i.e. students pursuing a 2nd academic degree) are not entitled to a Student Passport Pass.

SCHOLARSHIPS A. “I.K.Y.” SCHOLARSHIPS Undergraduate students are entitled to scholarships and awards by the State Scholarships Foundation (“I.K.Y.”), under the following terms and conditions: Awards (a diploma in print and a sum of money for buying scientific books of the student’s discipline) are granted to the student achieving the top score at the Pan-Hellenic National Examinations, to the student achieving the top score at each academic year’s examinations, and to the student achieving the top score at the graduation examinations (within the first two regular examination periods). Scholarships are granted to undergraduate students on the basis of the following criteria: a) the financial status of the students and their parents, and b) their ranking performance in the Pan-Hellenic National Examinations or each academic year’s examinations. The number of scholarships, the amount of each scholarship and award and other specific issues are defined by the Board of Directors of the State Scholarships Foundation.

GEORGIOS-THOMAS LAZONGAS Georgios-Thomas (Yorgos) Lazongas was born in 1945 in Larissa. He studied architecture at the University of Thessaloniki and, later on, having been awarded a scholarship by the French Government, he studied in Paris, at the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs and the École des Arts Appliqués, where he distinguished himself among 50 scholarship recipients. In 1972, he was awarded the 1st Award for young artists by the Hellenic American Union of Athens. In 1982, he was awarded a Prix Europe bronze medal, in Ostend, Belgium. Until 1985, he lived and worked in Paris and Thessaloniki, teaching at the Visual Arts Studio of the Faculty of Architecture of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Since 2008, he is a Professor at the Athens School of Fine Arts. During his years in France, he participated in exhibitions, in the spirit of the conceptual art of the 1970s. His collaboration with Alexander Iolas gave him the opportunity to meet and team up with influential foreign artists. His work is divided into three periods: During the first one (1974-1980), Lazongas focuses

on image and its substructure. He explores writing in painting, upon which layers of slides with drawings can be added. He explores the concept of Palimpsest in a two-way sense –back and forth in time–, by adding or removing writings, with collage and décollage. In his themes, he is preoccupied with the social dimension of image and visual communication, with works reshaping and redefining the everyday experience, such as in the Camping gaz canisters series (“an object open to multiple readings”), or in installations, such as “Bitter Victory” in different versions. During the same period, he also holds performances, which expand and broaden his research in materials and processes. In his installations, he uses stones, stray feathers, glass, mirrors, papers, fabrics – bits and pieces. The concept of the bed (“eros-hypnos-nostosthanatos”, i.e. love-sleep-homesickness-death) dominates the second period (1981-1990), as well as Blind Painting, the “Ineffable-Hidden/Cryptic”. Using as his main material the opaque carbon paper, he blind-traces his drawing, thus exploring in alternative ways the concept of trace. Blind Painting is the drawing trace lost or revealed in the context of the “Hidden/Cryptic-Ineffable” dipole. During the third period (1990 and thereafter), he is interested in the concepts of air and Breath. Exploring the visual narrative, he highlights the dynamics of the abstract element, which signifies the primordial and, at the same time, magical dimension of space. With references to the ancient imagery, he juxtaposes, re-writes, mimics or copies (Palimpsests), in order to reform new structures impregnated by modernism and the avant-garde of the 1970s. In his performances, as well as in the slides he used, he referred to the concepts of opacity and of the artist’s self-confinement in his space. Blind space-time. Artworks of his are exhibited in museums and private collections, in Greece and abroad. AFRODITI LITI Diploma in Sculpture, Athens School of Fine Arts, Athens.
