Review: Kuma International Summer School
July 8 – 22, 2019
The Bosniak Institute – Adil Zulfikarpašić Foundation in Sarajevo
The Kuma International Summer School was held July 8-22, 2019 at the Bosniak Institute – Adil Zulfikarpašić Foundation in Sarajevo. The VII Academy supported twelve scholarships for Bosnian students who applied to the summer school programs, and this year the students who were chosen were all women hailing from several Bosnian cities—Sarajevo, Banja Luka and Gračanica.
This was the second edition of Kuma International Summer School, with this year’s programming focusing on contemporary art production in Bosnia and Herzegovina and how artists from the region have discussed and dealt with the political climate of the 1990s. Students participated in gallery and studio visits, museum tours and engaging discussions with artists and academics.
