Description

Personal documentation helps to find approaches to individual self–definition. This 5 day workshop will enable students to create a personal piece of work in a structured and process–oriented environment. While the nuclear family, the home, ethnicity, gender and religion may lay the foundations upon which the self is built, our lived experience shapes us through memories and upheavals that put–on and remove masks, change our face and teach us to speak in different voices. Building up inside of us; layer by layer. This workshop aims to expose episodes from our personal life that permeate and influence the subject–matter and language of each respective creator. Although the self–portrait can only hint at its meaning – based on fragments of memory and feelings that have left a mark – it is always an ‘essence’ of past, present and future. The workshop will set in motion a process of searching for personal / autobiographical motivations, to uncover a personal story best suited to describe a moment that crystallizes an idea. Through researching, producing raw materials and editing, students will complete a creative work. The course will support work in a range of media and processes.

Typography is there to visualize Language
Room 143
Mariko Takagi Doshisha Women’s College of Liberal Arts Kyoto (Japan)
Tuesday
9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Wednesday
9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Thursday
9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Description

‘Multi–lingual’ or ‘multi–script’ typography is a hot topic these days. Type designers are not only creating superfamilies of typefaces, these typefaces also need to cover as many scripts as possible. At the same time, graphic designers are asked to find solutions for multi–lingual and multi–scriptural layout solutions that do not compromise the reading experience of the languages involved. While these are truly important tasks, they mainly focus on visually alining style and appearance of the respective languages. The beauty of knowing more than one language lies in the possibility of discovering unique characteristics of a language, even in one’s own mother tongue. In this workshop, we will focus on ‘one characteristic’ of a language, visualize it by typographic means and introduce this concept into a small booklet of which each participating student will create one section. This ‘characteristic’ can be anything you happen upon, for instance homophones, homonymes, odd spellings, loanwords, etc. While you are free to choose any language for this study, the descriptive or narrative texts (captions) need to be in English.

Lecturer

Mariko Takagi
Doshisha Women’s College of Liberal Arts
Kyoto (Japan)

Mariko Takagi is a German-Japanese typographer, author, book designer and educator. She acts as an intermediary between Western and Japanese cultures – specifically between Latin letters and Japanese/Chinese characters. Mariko Takagi spent 6 years in Hong Kong (2010-16), where she worked as an Assistant Professor at the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University. This move from a Roman alphabet to a bilingual environment with Latin letters and Chinese characters gave her new inspirations and insights into culture, language and script. In 2016, she published the book ‘Kanji Graphy’, in which she explores the Japanese writing system, looking at visual and semantic expressiveness in typography. In April 2017, Takagi moved to Kyoto to continue working as an Associate Professor and Researcher at Doshisha Women’s College of Liberal Arts in Kyoto.

Requirements

Description

Those of you who have always wanted to design a Serif or Sans Serif reading text font, but didn’t because: 1. You have no idea how and where to begin. 2. You think it is much too difficult and therefore you never tried. 3. You believe that only experts and Type Design nerds can design a good font. 4. You are afraid it will take months, maybe years to design a fairly meaningful text font. 5. You think you need to learn a highly sophisticated Type Design software. 6. You are a font lover. 7. You are still fucking motivated to learn this Type Design shit. Well, don't be intimidated anymore! In this 3 day workshop, you will learn to create your first editable text font. You will start with your own design of your Type Face, through the digital craftsmanship of glyphs in Adobe Illustrator, and finally make the font production of your first editable OFT font.

Description

As a 20th century poet writes: ‘The real is not enough; through its disguise / Tell us the truth which fills the mind with light / Because, without each other, all is night.’ During this workshop, we will deal with the difficulty of discovering and expressing any ‘truth’ through photography. We are going to question common consensus. Students will take photographs in a community they are familiar with, in which they are insiders. The group will experiment with finding visual and narrative tools to express things hidden, unspoken or simply gone unnoticed.

Thursday
2:00 PM – 4:45 PM

Description

Lard Buurman will start his workshop with a lecture about his visual urban research of the African city in relation to street photography and the decisive moment. After this introduction, the group will start their own visual research of Bielefeld. We will forget the stereotypes of Bielefeld and ask ourselves: ‘What makes Bielefeld a generic city?’ The workshop will focus on people and their relation to the built environment. We will do this by the medium of street photography. This means that the daily street life is a starting point to represent this city as if it is any other German city. In three days, we will capture the Generic City of Bielefeld and perhaps add some evidence to the myth of the Bielefeld conspiracy.

Lecturer

Indonesian Dyeing with Textiles and other Materials
Room 238
Yulriawan Dafri Indonesia Institute of Arts in Yogyakarta Indonesia
Wednesday
10:00 AM – 4:45 PM

Description

This workshop aims to introduce Indonesian Batik with traditional tools and way. Batik is listed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2009. In Indonesia, the techniques, symbolism and culture surrounding hand–dyed cotton and silk garments known as Indonesian Batik permeate the lives of Indonesians from beginning to end: infants are carried in batik slings decorated with symbols designed to bring the child luck, and the dead are shrouded in funerary batik. Batik even plays the central role in certain rituals, such as the ceremonial casting of royal batik into a volcano. Batik is dyed by proud craftspeople who draw designs on fabric using dots and lines of hot wax, which resists vegetable and other dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water and repeating the process if multiple colours are desired. At the end of the workshop, students will be able to create batik with a traditional pattern on scarfs and simple jewelry from coconut shell with batik on it.

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Description

Following Derrida’s remarks on Plato’s division, in the ‘Fable of Writing’ (Phaedros), between false memory (hypomnesis) and true memory (mneme), the talk aims at differentiating between two functions of memory: on the one hand, memory as an archive of data and facts, as done in digital media for example. On the other hand, memory of real, significant, often traumatic events, which shape our lives, and, as such, elude the archive while resurfacing in a spectral fashion.
