As part of an ongoing Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Program (BIP) initiated by the studio for Art and Intervention | Concept and supported by the International Office of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, a fourth encounter will take place.This time BIP is in Mainz, Germany, conceived by the Kunsthochschule Mainz by professors Shannon Bool and Tamara Grcic. 

The fourth BIP program in Mainz, entitled PRACTICE CHAOS, is a collaboration between students and professors from 3 academies: the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna with the students of the studio for Art and Intervention | Concept at the Institute fpr Fine Arts with Prof. Marina Grzinic and the post-doc researcher Jovita Pristovsek; the Kunsthochschule Mainz students with the Profs. Shannon Bool and Tamara Grcic; and the Marseille Academy of Fine Arts students with Prof. Frederic Pradeau.

BIP is based on the idea that participants conduct specific research with virtual components, exchange, travel and meet in the respective EU countries where the partner institutions are located.

Kunsthochschule Mainz proposed the title of the encounter: PRACTICE CHAOS. Students will intermix in new configurations to approach parallels and synergies in an exhibition context. Students from 3 academies and with different dimensions of artistic production (material practice, film, activism, performance) are to explore modes of display in a group exhibition setting. This process will be guided and developed through workshops by Rodney LaTourelle and Louise Witthoff, engaged by Kunsthochschule Mainz.
