《Internship Program》
The "Internship Program," led by artist Katsuhiko Hibino was initiated in 1999 to expand the involvement of the public in the ARCUS activities. The program name HIBINO HOSPITAL originates from its first series of programs in which an online hospital was set up to discuss art, combined with an offline workshop to make artworks with the artist. Presently, the program consists of offline workshops only, run by Hibino based on a variety of ideas he prepares for the participants. : HH Vol.73, HH Vol.74
