Announcement workshop Photography
Use of studio's + rooms during collectives
Collective assessments stand at the door, and as already mentioned, this is traditionally the week in which the students (and possibly teachers) in a completely anarchic way take our studios in possession and not always clean up the mess or take good care of the walls or equipment.

-NEW-IST courses for Bachelor students - Lectorate Art Theory & Practice
IST Market on 1 February 2017 to learn more about these courses!
The lectorate Art Theory & Practice organises the Art Research Programme for motivated and talented Bachelor students. The Art Research Programme consists of a series of courses, to which students can apply by submitting a letter of motivation.

On October 9, 1963, at 10:39pm 260 million cubic meters of rock broke off from the top of Monte Toc (Dolomites, Italy). It fell into the reservoir of the Vajont Dam, producing an enormous wave of at least 50 million cubic meters of water. The dam, completed in 1959 and the biggest in the world at the time, did not suffer any serious damage. However, flooding destroyed several villages in the valley and killed almost 2,000 people. A third of the population of Longarone, the largest village downstream of the dam, perished.
