Situated in the international Geneva University of Art and Design, CCC Research-Based Master programme (bilingual French/English) is dedicated to transdisciplinary research in the arts. Based on critical and political studies, CCC programme emphasizes self-reflexion and analysis and encourages research on postcolonial and gender theories, ecological and post-urban issues, web languages, sustainable education and bio-economy, memory politics, governmentality, contact zones and migrations, European syntax, cosmopolitics, interventionist art practices and tactical media.

To emphasize the transdisciplinary research, CCC programme welcomes candidates trained in art as well as in disciplines outside the field of art, including candidates from the sciences, humanities, politics, economics, polytechnics, law and various interdisciplinary practices.

Elaborated in an organic conception of research and teaching, CCC programme is built on a strong intellectual and conceptual foundation and a wide range of research skills for the conception of projects open to participation and free distribution. Conceived as a learning community the programme promotes a mutually engaged pedagogy that encourages the sharing of resources and competences as well as collaborative dynamics.

Studio investigations and artistic research are realized through the media of technical reproduction as well as through experimental formats. The program explores the role of art in society and considers artistic practice as knowledge production, thus promoting an approach that challenges traditional genres and the limits of the gallery/museum context. International and inter-faculty research projects associate prominent scientists and motivated students. To quote a few examples: the recent project Beyond the Monument deals with art representations of memory politics in the processes of peace and reconstruction after mass violence; The Anthropocene Atlas of Geneva engages students into research on the herbarium of the botanical garden or the literary metaphor of the maelstrom in search of representations of climate change.

CCC Pre-Doctorate/PhD Seminar in Arts maps the territory for a future doctorate in art practice while providing an open space for continuing research. The regular ses­sions ensure the sustainability of the research in art and supports young researchers with the development of their academic career.

Faculty: Pierre Hazan, Catherine Quéloz, Anne-Julie Raccoursier, Gene Ray, Laura von Niederhäusern.
