Het Vijfde Seizoen

Studenten MA AKV St. Joost.

Winter 2019

During the Winter of 2019 George Korsmit and his students of AKV ST. Joost are working in The Fifth Season. Eric Patel (alumnus) and four MA students: Annemee Dik, Raffaëlla Huizinga, Dorien Scheltens and Murat Yildiz are staying in the residency from January up and until March.

The artists are researching how psychiatry can influence their work. To be able to do this, they are working together with the staff and patients of the institute. They will present their work at the end of March.

Teacher of the group is George Korsmit, who did a residency in The Fifth Season with his partner Saskia Janssen in 2013.

Since 2014, The Fifth Season has made it a tradition to invite different art academies each year to say in the residency. This way, beginning artists get the opportunity to research what role art can play in a social context and how specific surroundings can stimulate and enrich this research and the making of new works of art.

Art academies that The Fifth Season has previously invited are: Sandberg Institute (Cure Master with Martijn Engelbregt), ArtEZ with Lado Darakhvelidze, Gerrit Rietveld Academie with Vincent Zedelius and Hanne Hagenaars and the HKU with Frank Koolen and Anno Dijkstra.
