The studio has the following points of focus: Paper object – Paper Technology and Book Art – Book Object – Artist's Book.
The chief aim of this studio is to impart knowledge and acquaint students with processes that will enable them to engage with these four topics in greater detail and to develop individual artistic works. A special focus is places on form-finding with the medium of paper, paper technology, as well as book design for artists' books and unique books. Students are instructed to work according to the demands of the material, in project-oriented and experimental ways.
