Masterclass with Michael Kutschbach

Saturday 14 October – Sunday 15 October
Enrolment deadline extended to Thursday 5 October

Kutschbach’s work is generated from process-based strategies and material investigations that become more rigorous as he proceeds. There is wit and delight in his material investigations and a choreography of actions that lead to the made work. Every work is offered as a speculation. — Johnnie Dady

Michael Kutschbach returns to Adelaide from Berlin where he has been based for 12 years. His Masterclass will dive into the playful, intuitive and inventive aspects of studio practice. Materials are considered to have a life of their own, and therefore have the possibility to guide you toward surprising and unpredictable outcomes.

Masterclasses are an excellent way to expand your practice, gain new insight, develop new ideas and learn new techniques. Teachers gain valuable accredited Professional Learning hours. Limited places available.
