From street art to dance: Summer of art in Dresden

From street art to dance: Summer of art in Dresden ( Dresden (FIR) - Dresden is a city that is not only young but also keeps you young. In summer three different summer academies attract people from the whole of Germany and beyond who wish to devote their holidays to developing their artistic talents. Even in the 18th century, the time of Augustus the Strong, artists such as Bernardo ‘Canaletto’ Bellotto found inspiration in Dresden by the banks of the river Elbe.

This ongoing tradition is nurtured by the Sommerakademie für Bildende Kunst (Dresden International Summer Academy of Fine Arts) run by riesa efau. For two weeks every summer, around 200 participants from 15 countries, aged 16 to 99 years, come together to work on artistic Projects under professional guidance. Ranging from painting, street art and video art to photography, drawing, collage and wood sculpture, the programme includes 20 different courses. The focus
this year is on the human figure. In painter Manfred Zoller, riesa efau have recruited a lecturer who ranks as one of the world’s leading experts on the human anatomy in art.

The crowning glory of the Summer Academy of Fine Arts is the exhibition staged by the course participants and their lecturers in the Motorenhalle, the Project Centre for Contemporary Art
(private opening 9th August; exhibition lasts until 23rd August).

The best dancers are invited to attend a twelve-month training Programme at the Palucca University of Dance or at the SemperOper Ballet Company.

The focus will be on the question of how digitisation and globalisation are affecting existing ways of organising knowledge and on the role of museums and libraries. Some of the lectures will be open to the public.
