Master in Visual Arts and Post Contemporary Practice

During this two-year Master programme, students from various disciplines develop practice-led and process-orientated artistic research that is supported by research-led teaching.

In an interdisciplinary learning environment, students have the opportunity to develop independent and collaborative research projects. Through a theoretically informed, critical and reflexive approach, students develop and evaluate their practice in a peer-to-peer context.

We offer a research environment that connects cultural studies, visual and digital cultures and we invite students to generate strategies and speculative as well as materialist praxes that might expand the social and aesthetic sensorium of society. Students are stimulated to re-envision artistic engagement through an open-ended and creative process.

The aim of the programme is to enable starting artists to develop intellectual and practical skills and the confidence to do what every new generation of artists has to do: to redefine their practice and their role in relation to society. The programme is led by a core tutor, Charl Landvreugd.
