In the spirit of the exhibiting concept of U10 and as a support of significant achievements of new artist production, the participants of this exhibition were given a chance to officially introduce themselves in the field of art.
Students of Architecture, History of Art and Sculpture were given an opportunity to together at this occasion proactively conquer knowledge and skills about the process and technology of making an exhibition, develop the concept and produce an art work, along with the aid of curatorial practices and realization of the exhibiting project. The key point of this project lies within the cooperation between different faculties, multidisciplinary training and a way of working that enables students to gain knowledge for real-life situations which they are confronted with after graduation. Special attention was given to motivating students in making independent choices of topics and an assignment that they solved using different contemporary strategies.
