TYT [Take Your Time], Vol. 6: Institut für Raumexperimente, 2009–2014; How to Make the Best Art School in the World
TYT [Take Your Time], Vol. 6: Institut für Raumexperimente, 2009–2014; How to Make the Best Art School in the World celebrates the experiments in arts education carried out by the Institut für Raumexperimente (Institute for Spatial Experiments), founded by Olafur Eliasson and co-directed by Eric Ellingsen and Christina Werner. The project was affiliated with the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) and located in the same building as Studio Olafur Eliasson. The book includes around 400 photos taken by the participants and grantees of the Institut, the Institut team, or by its affiliated contributors, both during and as part of activities across the school’s five-year programme.
TYT, Vol. 6 presents an unbroken sequence of images that leads the reader through the astounding variety of events, lectures, performances, travels, exhibitions, and marathons that formed the school’s curriculum. The content reflects ideas, efforts, situations, attempts, collective experiences, and individual perspectives – in short, everything involved in making art. This book, like the Institut and its work, co-produces the world.
A production by Studio Olafur Eliasson, TYT [Take Your Time] presents current research and projects by Olafur Eliasson and his studio in the format of an intermittently recurring magazine, which emphasises the process of developing and testing ideas and artworks. Vol. 6 expands the series to include the five years of educational programming undertaken as part of the Insitut für Raumexperimente, a project associated with Eliasson’s studio and the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK).
