DESCRIPTION

The Artification course in illustration offers an easy introduction to one of the most complex and exciting forms of the Moscow Conceptualist movement, developed by Ilya Kabakov and Viktor Pivovarov. Visitors will practice key drawing techniques and methods.

This course will be useful for anyone who wants to learn to think like an artist. Every participant will have the chance to make his or her own conceptual album where images and text work together, try making sketches and collages, and learn about some of the main techniques involved in illustration.

This form was suggested by the way we lived: the artist’s studio was not only a working space—it was the place where the work was shown, where people came to see an event, a performance. An album could perfectly match their expectations, as it contained certain elements of a theater performance, of a film and a book, while remaining a work of visual art.
