Students will be working in a studio setting and make new work during this intensive week. All media are included as long as it can be produced within the framework of this week. Marcel will focus on the working process and the presentation of it. Barbara will be in the position of a contemporary art professional with the view of a gallery owner.

Luis Maly, Under the thyme
Clothes of diseased people, my grandfather, his friends, his brother. Keeping them alive in an absurd life. They are under the thyme though, in Greek this would be an expression to state that someone is dead.
