Master in Ecology Futures

The master's programme Ecology Futures focusses on how art and design can help define and change the narrative around today's anthropocentric worldview. Through artistic research rooted in scientific methodologies, students will be challenged to develop their own position, both theoretical and practical. Linked to the new Material Incubator lab space, students will be encouraged to explore and engage with the biological world as a way to express concepts, directly incorporating living matter into their work. Together we will envision all kinds of different ecological futures, developing critical work about our position as humans in relation to all other living and non-living entities, aiming to achieve a radical shift in perception on society today. The programme is led by core tutor, Xandra van der Eijk.
