“The production of meaning” is the motto of this year’s International Summer Academy course program. The course examines our (individual or social) conduct and how meaning can be produced with artistic (critical and curatorial) resources. Many artists are working on this and related themes in very different ways, attempting — to put it simply — to understand and represent the world we live in, producing a multiplicity of meanings and opening the way for different interpretations.
