Are you an artist and you want to write a text about your own work? You have to apply for subsidies but can't get it on paper?
In this course, in a short series of lessons, tools are given for writing a good text. How can you let go of the self-censorship and get to text production? How can you get closer to the core of your own fascination? And how can you be an editor for yourself again and give everything a head and tail?
We search for authentic words. Many artists' texts become too pretentious or too general. Make it into something that really suits you. Avoid duplication. Give a picture. Let others feel your passion. Develop the courage to speak improvisedly about your work to a group.
It is possible to enter blank but it is useful to bring your own project. We work with techniques that can lead to more freedom in writing and greater concentration. The group is also invited - within the safety of a set of checkpoints - to give feedback on the texts so that they become sharper. You learn to use criticism positively.
