Academy programs

Guest artists and curators attend the summer academy to get a creative surge, revitalize their practice, gain fresh perspectives on their work, experiment in a protected, supportive environment and/or to strike out in new directions. They are typically mid-career artists and curators who wish to join graduate and doctoral students in workshops, lectures, critiques, exhibitions, and events. Post-residency, Transart can help you design a self-study program, support your praxis during the following year and advise you on an MFA or PhD proposal. 


Join a vital, active community of artists, theorists, writers and curators who continue to exhibit and perform together internationally. Optionally get input and planning support for a year-long independent project. Transart Summer Academy will take place in the spacious, beautiful, fully equipped, dance and performance spaces at Ufer Studios in Berlin with exhibitions, performance and time-based events occurring on the weekends and weekday morning yoga and evening talks from artists, theorists, curators, and guests throughout.

Choose three elective workshops, either studio or theory. Respond to projects, exercises or assignments and experiment in any media you choose in any course. Present your work to the school body for feedback as well as in small groups and one to one sessions with artists and curators. Choose up to three faculty, guests or advisors for individual meetings to review your work.

Additionally choose the optional professional development workshop or participate in excursions to galleries, studios and museums with a Berlin curator.
