About

The aim of the Master's Degree in History of Contemporary Art and Visual Culture is to train specialists and researchers trained both for the historical and critical analysis of the most recent artistic evolution and for the application of these capacities to cultural production and management.

Knowledge that intersects with contemporary art and visual culture goes beyond the traditional disciplinary structure of art history and the sphere of local debate, demanding close contact with the general and multidisciplinary debate at the international level. For this reason, and although small postgraduate programs trying to approach this profile are being offered by universities, only the joint action of two large departments such as the History and Theory of Art of the Autonomous University of Madrid and the Area of Aesthetics and Theory de las Artes, attached to the Department of Philosophy of the Autonomous University of Madrid, and the Department of Art History of the Faculty of Geography and History of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid , can offer the academic structure and teaching staff necessary to create studies of reference at national and international level. The association with the Reina Sofía National Art Center Museum, in addition to assuming the incorporation of unmatched infrastructures and direct learning opportunities, reinforces the role of reference that this program aspires to.

This Master will serve both as a complete learning module and as an academic platform for students who decide to continue their research in contemporary art history at the doctoral level.
