TIPP
Tihany International Postgraduate Program, Tihany, Hungary
Goldsmiths College, London - Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts

IS INVITING APPLICATIONS
FOR THE 4. TIPP INTERNATIONAL COURSE IN CONTEMPORARY ART, 2006

INTRODUCTION
TIPP - Tihany International Postgraduate Program
is an international collaborative research
initiative between the Visual Arts Department at
Goldsmiths College, London and the Hungarian
Academy of Fine Arts. The program includes
symposiums, intensive courses, conferences,
artist-in-residencies, exhibitions and other
events as well as the production of publications.
Our aim is to create an international forum for
artists to explore the creative diversity of
contemporary fine art practice and the nature of
the critical discourse, which surrounds it.

The courses also provide a chance to have access
to the experience of the teaching staff from both
Goldsmiths and the Hungarian Academy in Budapest
and can serve as an introduction to postgraduate
study at either institution. The teaching
techniques we use have been developed by
Goldsmiths College over the last 18 years and
exemplify an approach that is deeply critical,
whilst also being irreverent and playful. The
courses are ideal for those who are considering
returning to postgraduate education after a break
or those who wish to have an intensive period of
reflection and discussion around their current
practice. In this sense the teaching is centred
around the participants' individual needs.

The programs are mainly situated at the newly
renovated premises of the Hungarian Academy of
Fine Arts in Tihany, where participants have the
opportunity to experience art, theory and debate
away from its usual urban environment. In
locating TIPP this way, a uniquely open
atmosphere is created. From experience we have
found that the opportunity for more relaxed
social interaction between participants directly
contributes to freer expression and sharing of
ideas and a more open forum for debate.

LOCATION
Tihany is a very lively village during the summer
holidays with first class restaurants, bars and
cafes all a short walk from TIPP's premises.
Since the mid sixties it has been a favourite
holiday location for people from all over Europe.
It is a peninsula reaching out into Lake Balaton,
the largest fresh water lake in Central Europe.
The landscape is volcanic in nature and the main
industries are forestry, viniculture and tourism.
Tihany also boasts a long and colourful history;
it was the burial place of the Hungarian royals
in the middle ages and is the site of a beautiful
baroque church that belongs to the Benedictine
order. The Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts'
premises where TIPP is based are the original
agricultural buildings of the monastery. The
setting is unusually serene and forms part of a
large nature reserve that is home to many rare
forms of plant and animal life. The 2000 m2
grounds of the facility accommodate an array of
buildings set in fields that roll down to the
side of a small inland fishing lake, the Belsö
Tó. The premises of the Hungarian Academy of Fine
Arts at Tihany were fully renovated in 1998. They
offer accommodation for forty people during the
summer and twenty-five during the winter. Most of
the rooms are double with a few accommodating
upto four people; all rooms have an on-suite
bathroom with shower. The complex also has a
large refectory and kitchen where communal meals
may be shared. The facility boasts a huge
medieval open barn that acts as a studio and
exhibition space during the summer. There are
also many other buildings that may be used as
studios and exhibition spaces. Students on the
programme are encouraged to explore the site and
make new work in and around it. The facility also
has a computer room where students have access to
the internet and a range of software at their
disposal.
