Black Mirrors – Examinations: Exposure / Experiment

Ten artists and Master’s students are examined and show parts of their reflection processes in the form of ten presentations. Come and share their experiments in Studio 1 at Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts on 11 and 14 December!

For the second time, Stockholm University of the Arts offers its one year Master’s Programme in artistic self-reflection. The education is interdisciplinary, holistic and aimed at already professional artists. It tests different methods to performatively analyze and deepen the artist's own creative process.

During the two semesters, students from different areas have examined their problem formulation, linked to their own artistic practice. The Black Mirror is a metaphor and refers to the ancient antique mirror which was made of bronze. The image might be slightly less perfect than that which emerges from today's modern mirrors, but it was always true and honest.

Welcome to look into our Black Mirrors!
