This year, film will be taught by the Brazilian duo Distruktur (Melissa Dullius and Gustavo Jahn), and photography by French photographer Valérie Jouve, who portrays people against the background of their cities. Lebanese architect Tony Chakar also focuses on the city, though not through a specific medium, but looking at the diverse interests and histories expressed in it. Since its foundation by Oskar Kokoschka in 1953, the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts has retained its international orientation. The teachers and students come from all over the world, and the courses are devoted to global questions.

Distruktur—Melissa Dullius/Gustavo Jahn
Film as a Sensative Body
August 14–26
Distruktur is part of the collective LaborBerlin, which preserves analogue film as an artistic and activist medium and maintains knowledge of analogue film-making. Film is a sensitive body, used in this course for experiment. Various processes for artistic work  with analogue film will be taught—from shooting with the 16mm camera, through developing in the dark-room, to montage—and the different aesthetic qualities examined.
Course fee: 700 EUR (reduced: 540 EUR)

Valérie Jouve
Photography as a Tool of Encounters 
July 17–29
French photographer and film-maker Valérie Jouve tirelessly browses the city in search of its inhabitants. Working mainly with a large-format camera, she tries to achieve a portrait of human society. The course concentrates on how to use photography for invention: how can we take a picture using intuition and heart, rather than the eye?
Course fee: 700 EUR (reduced: 540 EUR)

Tony Chakar
On Seeking Incuriously 
July 31–August 12
Tony Chakar, architect and artist, will think with his class about cities, images, architecture, poetry, ideas—about the Surrealists and Situationists, Baudelaire and Benjamin… Students will discover the small city of Salzburg, and will be encouraged to use whatever is necessary to develop their ideas and concepts—from a simple written text, to drawings and sketches, to installations or performances.
Course fee: 700 EUR (reduced: 540 EUR)

All prospective participants must apply for acceptance. On the basis of the submitted dossier, the teaching artists select participants. The fees are between 450 EUR and 1,200 EUR, depending on the duration of the course. Students are entitled to a reduced fee. All applications received by May 2, 2017 will be treated equally. Later applications are welcome, and will be processed in the order received, according to vacancies in the courses.
