International Summer School on Glass Studies

The second edition of the International Summer School on Glass Studies, co-organized by the
Vitrocentre Romont and the University of Fribourg, is dedicated to contemporary movements in 20th
and 21st century glass art. Under the title A Contemporary Form of Expression, the artistic developments
in glass, stained glass as well as reverse glass painting are treated in an exemplary manner
and are discussed with international specialists. Aspects such as technical and artistic reinventions in
contemporary glass, as well as the significance of abstraction in stained and reverse glass painting
or transmedia tendencies in the arts of the 20th and 21st centuries are considered and the examination
of original artworks is encouraged. The five-day Summer School offers a deeper insight into the fascinating
world of glass art and is intended to introduce the participants to this art historical field by
means of various teaching formats (lectures, group work, short excursions).
