A dropping means that you are dropped at an unknown location, from where you must find your way back to your home base. The idea behind a dropping is that it teaches you to explore an unknown location using your own talents, which in turn allows you to understand this place’s meaning and value to you. You will become familiar with generally applicable characteristics of art education, in which analysis, visualisation and research are recurring subjects. This quarter focuses on finding your own position relative to yourself and others, and orienting yourself within the possibilities offered to you by the Academy. This teaches you to leave behind your assumptions and frames of reference, which in turn helps you broaden your horizons.
