The ACSA takes place in the new location of AUTOCENTER in the very heart of Berlin. For ACSA 2013 a four-week program with two classes each week and wonderful accompanying lectures and tours has been created. We have managed to bring together great personalities from all over the world - all being involved in the arts, still bringing in their very special expertise and perspective.
Our aim is to provide a platform for networking and for developing ones personal work with the support of - and in exchange with international artists, to meet various personalities from the art world and exchange of ideas, while getting insights in the art metropolis Berlin. Not only due to the fact that we are located in a former library, the question of how knowledge can be gained and/or shared and how communication functions within this process to experience community and exchange, became constantly more vivid and our leading theme during ACSA 2013.
In the past 12 years AUTOCENTER has established itself as one of the most important art spaces in Berlin - through its dynamic, innovative and autonomous concept. As it is AUTOCENTERs goal to offer a space for experiments in every art section, it was a logical consequence that in 2009 AUTOCENTER organized the first International Summer Academy in Berlin (ISAB 2009). With its wide experience and its close cooperation with international artists and institutions, AUTOCENTER offers the ideal infrastructure to provide a platform for discourses on contemporary art production and practice.
With ACSA 2013 an extended program has been developed to allow approx. 120 international guests to participate in this network and to work within this professional infrastructure.
