Settling in. Am I Making Friends Yet?

Before I knew it, two working weeks have passed. Four courses are ending today with the Open Days exhibition and I’m genuinely curious what the artists are going to show. I am finally a little bit used to the architectural pastry chef's masterpiece of a city, and I’m even starting to make friends! Who knew!


Hang in there!


From a perspective of a chronicler, this week has gone by faster than the previous one. Despite some long days and the relentless Schnürlregen, the week was fun. I spent it chatting with a lot of people, having a drink or two and staying out until the outrageous 11 pm. While on a hunt for a bike, I was offered a bike by Sebastian. Unfortunately, it was a really tall, male bike that I couldn’t ride. Regardless, I will get one in a week when Thomas’ extra bike becomes available.


Watching the students come into their own is exciting. Just like me, they seem more relaxed, open and chatty. Some of them have already produced interesting work and some were adding the finishing touches yesterday. It feels almost unfair that the end of their artistic adventure is here, but like always - this can be just a mark of another chapter for everyone.


Thursday ended with a cool exhibition opening at Periscope, where I could actually see some of the works from co-teachers’ practices. The show will change and rotate works, so more of these events are to come.


As for the writer, I have been observing a lot, asking a lot of (perhaps too many) questions, and contemplating on what I’ve seen. I even got a small drawing from Antje! Trying to make out my own view of art as a reflection of life, I’ve returned to this never ending, exhausting process, which at this time brings me to an inevitable question - what does it mean to ‘be’ an art blogger? Maybe next week I will find out.

Scroll down for bits and pieces of the atmosphere from the Festung. See you around!

As a comfort for being condemned to walk (for now), Thomas embellished my Salzburg map. Thanks, mate!
