Make – Experiments in Art Making

Make – Experiments in Art Making is an exhibition exchange project between a selection of leading international universities. The project was initiated and founded by Gustav Hellberg in 2018. It is a project that is supposed to function as a platform for experiments in art education. One of the leading questions behind this project is to see if it is possible to combine art making with art teaching. Another endeavour will be to try to break hierarchical educational structures, a study in who is teaching and who is learning. The result of this research is to be exhibited in universities home cities and to be published as an annual anthology of essays in combination with documentation of the projects’ processes and resulting artworks.


Gustav Hellberg collaborated with student Youngjoo Sul. Their video Relational Strategem shows Youngjoo Sul and Gustav Hellberg talk about relationships and collaborations.

This video was part of their contribution the education and exhibition project Make–Experiments in Art Making. Student Hongseok Kang was part of the coillaboration as videographer.
