Marlene and Tara as guests

MarleneTara_06We are always happy when our alumni get in touch with us, even if it is spontaneous and we can not spend so much time with them as we want. Last night, however, this has worked wonderfully and so we came together from 16:30 to 23:30 with Marlene and Tara, talking about the further developments of their lives.

Marlene pulled a long internship in the theater workshops in Vienna, from where she returned enthusiastic and with a lot of experience in the practical-artistic accomplishment. Now she began her studies of Ethnology in Leipzig and rented recently, together with her sister a small studio for artistic work. We had the feeling that Marlene is exactly on the right way, looking forward to things that come, feeling very comfortable.
Taras life seems to be a bit more complicated, so many talking points revolved around the question of the failure and the quality of this form of experience. Tara needs a little patience and is currently looking for a way of training in the graphic area, which further advances her way to communication design. Even Taras development is absolutely positive, although she did not carry out the time in our semesters directly into a study. More important, it appears that both collect initially life experience to implement these experiences artistically into their independent work later on.
MarleneTara_04Our friend, photographer and part time lecturer Daniel W., who joined us during the evening, complemented the round as elder statesman and participated actively with his personal testimonies.

In den letzten Tagen haben wir viele Ehemalige bei uns zu Gast. Wir freuen uns sehr darüber, denn genau dadurch bekommen wir Informationen aus erster Hand zu den aktuellen Situationen an den verschiedensten Hochschulen.

Maya hatte dieses Jahr das Glück, bei den Prüfungen für Visuelle Kommunikation an der Kunsthochschule Weissensee assistieren zu können. Das heißt, sie hat alle eingereichten Mappen gesehen. Sehr spannend für uns. Sie berichtete, dass alleine 30-40 Mappen sofort rausflogen, weil die präsentierten Ergebnisse absolut unterirdirsch waren. Im Vergleich dazu hatten es unsere Bewerber_Innen gut. Zwei von drei kamen zur Prüfung und hegen berechtigte Chancen auf eine Zulassung. Mit den Berichten von Maya kennen wir nun auch die aktuelle Lage an der kleinen Akademie wieder. Wir sind also up to date.
Dank Maya.

Nice surprise!

Nice surprise. It took almost two years, then Michael from Year 14/15 passed by and reported new and exciting things about his time at the art academy Nürnberg and his class with Prof. Ottmar Hörl. A bottle of Pinot Gris Erlenbacher am Fels helped embellish the stories accordingly. Cheers. And hopefully again!

Fat compliment

Dear Katrin, Dear Michael,
I thank you from my heart again for the great and fantastic analysis of my portfolio and the errors I have made. This alone was worth my application.
The deep insight you gave me I have already shared with my friends and family who kept fingers crossed for the application so long. I can only recommend you and your work positively. Now I just need time to implement your good advices.
Let’s see where it leeds me. Thank you for everything and keep on going.

Mit Oona ist die zweite von drei Bewerbern zur Prüfung an die KHB für visuelle Kommunikation eingeladen worden. Bei der großen Anzahl an Bewerber_innen ist das für sie wie für uns ein sehr guter Einstand. Wir freuen uns riesig, dass sie so jung und mit ihrer ersten Bewerbung gleich die erste Hürde nehmen konnte und wir bleiben wie bei Janni zuversichtlich, dass sie mit ihren Prüfungsergebnissen letzlich auch die Zusage zur Zulassung bekommen wird
