Temporary Field for Experimental Work without any Absolute Result
Pentiment has been organising courses since 1988 in the field of art and design. Professional artists and designers, talented autodidacts, art- and design students work here every summer for a fortnight. Regardless of age, education or heritage, participants congregate in an intensive exchange as equals. In the process, they are guided by renowned national or international lecturers. The event takes place at the Department of Design of the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg (UASHH).
An extensive public sponsorship programme accompanies our curriculum. Presentations held by guest lecturers, curators or authors, including films, concerts and parties are open to interested visitors.The summer academy is concluded with a large public exhibition, where all works are presented.
Our summer academy is purposely conducted within the framework as a non-profit organization. It is our societal cause to facilitate and to support cultural self-improvement and networking of art creators. Pentiment provides free admission and assistance to anyone, enabling, via scholarships, access for talented students and artists.
