Autocenter Summer Academy 2015 will take place in the renowned Berlin 
exhibition space in the very heart of Berlin. This year's program 
will offer participants a rich combination of practical and 
theoretical knowledge. A unique atmosphere will allow for formal 
critic and personal discussion with a wide selection of hand-picked 
international experts drawn from all fields of art. In addition, the 
ACSA will provide new insights to the art world, its institutions and 
naturally its active discourse.

For ACSA 2015, a three-week program has been created. Participants 
can choose how long they wish to attend, and in turn select from two 
weekly courses designed and run by international acclaimed artists. 
Each course has a maximum of 17 participants, which will give each 
the opportunity to develop their artistic practice and theory over 
the course of the week. The course is set up to allow maximum ability 
to converse and interact with the teacher-while at the same time 
being able to immerse themselves in one of the most exciting city art 
scenes in the world.

In addition to the set course, each week's schedule includes three 
lectures and an art-tour led by expert journalists, collectors and 
curators. The guided tours will enable personal visits to studios, 
galleries and art institutions. At the end of every week, on Saturday 
evening a public presentation will be held in the Autocenter 
exhibition space.

For the second time we are adding a two-week theory class (first and 
second week) this year. Art critic and author Jennifer Allen and 
architect and critic Thibaut de Ruyter will run it again together 
after its huge success in 2014. Together with up to 15 participants 
they will focus on theory, history and the actual process of 
exhibition making.
