Approximately 150 students graduate from Konstfack every year. The time at Konstfack is a period of lust, anxiety, joy, despair and a lot of work to finish in time for the degree show. The many possibilities at the school place great demands on its students.
During the spring semester of 2011, Karin Ahlin followed three Master’s students in their last and most important creative process at the school. The documentary Keep on Burning allows us to follow their concerns, thoughts and struggles: from the initial idea to a complete exhibition and reflections on life after school.
The film provides insight into the creation and all that it entails: from the pressure that the student constantly lives under to the highs and lows of the creative process.
It is incredibly difficult to get in to Konstfack, but the film Keep on Burning shows what may sometimes be even more difficult: getting out.
