Total Art School Programm
designing and organising the Total Art School programm for 2017


In June 2016 we start the first semester of the international Total Art School in France. To present, for every following semester (next start : June-2017) the most exiting and uniek Total Art programm to our artstudents, I need a time away from the daily tumult and a space inwich I can fully concentrate myself on this task. The Coboat in wintertime sounds to my like a very good place for designing and organising these following Total Art semester programms. Total Art is a new direction of Art focussing on real (not cyber) fields of intense experiences according to the basic human needs. In our Total Art School we will inspire and educate our students how to design there own artfields and how to manifest there ideas into real creations. For more information and a better understanding of Total Art, please see our website: (soon under our new webseite : )

In summary, what is your “Made on Coboat” project idea (max. 3 sentences)?

Working out a programm in all details for the second semester of the Total Art School for 2017. This Programm includes ideas for a few different artfields, the theoretical and practical part of various building technics and how to work with different materials.

How much of your project can you realistically achieve in 100 days if you will get the chance to stay on the Coboat?

In 100 days I can, for sure workout the full Total Art educationprogramm for 2017, collect the new study books, make all the calculations for the practical parts, invite some new teachers, spread the publicity, and make an overfew of all the managment issues.

Will you complete this project on your own, or will you be working with a together with a team?

The project on the Coboat I can complete on my own.

Why should your project be chosen?

I think "Total Art" can become a new direction of art, because it makes not only the creaters more aware of the basic human needs, but allso the visiters, who can play an active roll in the various artfields. Total Art can be a bridge to connect people in a collective field of intense awareness, without beliefsystems and manipulative concepts.

What does this project mean to you?

The vision of Total Art was ripen for many years in me and I feel it is time to share it with all the people, who are interessted in it. So this project means everythink to me.

Why do you want to do this project?

To spread the vision and concept of Total Art is the biggest challenge of my life. It is my work, my heart and my soul.
