You wish to gain more insight into the innovative quality of painting in a rapidly changing world. Aware of the force of physicality and materiality of art works, you take a painterly approach as you conduct your experimental research into the functioning of perception psychology, cognition and imagination. A painting shows you the imagination of ideas as well as how the material is edited and used. Taking a painterly and critical approach means that you create new relationships and associations through the use of materiality. In this way, you determine the meaning and significance of your work in today's society by combining ideation and materiality; transforming your ideas in unexpected, meaningful and powerful images.

What m​​atters

To be admitted to this master, we expect you to show us what you want to get out of this programme. We therefore ask you to submit a broad outline of the artistic research that matters to you. What is it that fascinates you about painting? What kind of research would you like to carry out, what is progress that you want to make? During the admissions procedure you will discuss your ideas with us. Once admitted, your ideas will form the start of the next two years.
