Redmond Entwistle’s new film Walk-Through, a combination of documentary and fictionalised reconstruction, is a multi-faceted analysis of contemporary art education and the very particular impact of Michael Asher’s ‘post-studio class’ at the California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles in the 1970s. The ‘Post-Studio’ class exemplified CalArt’s mission to “haul the teacher from the podium” and activate the student in the learning process. It took the form of extended group discussions - sometimes lasting over 12 hours - in which students critiqued each other's work. Subsequently the group critique has become the primary model of teaching in arts schools today. Walk-Through is devised as a tour of the campus, which guides us through CalArts’ history and the life of the school, from archive images of its design and construction in the late 1960’s to the present day. The film analysis the school's mission, its place in art history, and its flexible architecture, which was designed to facilitate its democratic philosophy.

Return from Vienna

Return from Vienna

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
