Summer School Marfa is a three week fieldtrip and student fieldwork studio from May 20 to June 10 2013 in Marfa, Texas for students from the Dutch Art Institute, Sandberg Instituut / Gerrit Rietveld Academie en California College of Arts (CCA) and organized by TAAK. The aim is to expand contemporary discourses, social practices and politics in art to create a unique experience and opportunity for students and to gain an understanding of the dynamics and social impact of art in public spaces. By examining the transformation of Marfa, students engage in a critical analysis of the value and use of public art using fieldwork methods.
