No.w.here Summer School, A Lecture from Behind the Screen ran throughout the summer of 2012. Sessions and workshops took place throughout London, and Guest Projects was one of these places.
This six-week programme built on no.w.here's reputation as a vital community and site for the production, discussion and dissemination of practices engaged with the moving image, politics, technology and aesthetics. Under the direction of Maxa Zoller, the summer school offered participants a combination of theoretical seminars, one-on-one contact with tutors, student-led activities, field trips, guest workshops led by artists and theorists alongside a programme of hands-on film and video making. These components are reliant upon and reflective of one another in a manner that allows practice to enlighten theory, collective experimentation to inform individual production.
Guests included; Thomas Hirschhorn, Mikhail Karikis, Uriel Orlow, Hilary Koob-Sassen, The Otolith Group, RUBEDO, Martina Mullaney, Camille Barabagallo, Frances Rifkin and Chto Delat?
The summer school was open to everybody including potential BA, and MA students opting out of formal art school training with the introduction of the new fees. Equally, the summer school will appeal to postgraduate art students and artists, experimental film makers and cinephiles wanting to invest in their practice.
