The Master of Research in Art and Design offers a one-year postgraduate programme with an international orientation. A select group of artists with a Master’s degree are invited to develop their individual work and will receive full support.

The programme includes both supervision of the artistic research by professionals as well as theoretical input that focuses on the various aspects of the artistic research practice. Student supervision takes the form of three complementary training sections: production, documentation, and presentation. This corresponds to the actual intertwining of practice and theory, production, presentation, distribution and documentation found in contemporary art.

A team of regular and guest professors from a range of fields will analyse, situate and interpret the work of the students within the contemporary artistic discourse. In addition, group discussions are organised in each training section to help students sharpen their artistic profile. Assignments and in-depth individual discussions with the supervisors and guest lecturers will help to discover, revise or criticise ‘research’ in the students’ own work. The relation between artistic research and possible presentation forms is considered crucial in the training. Besides individual guidance for the end-of-year exhibition, students receive a general introduction to the exhibition system. This should not only lead to a better understanding of the actors in the field, but also to sharper insight into presentation and distribution mechanisms in contemporary art.

We welcome young artists seeking to expand the research aspect of their artistic practice. Holders of Master’s degrees in both visual arts and design or in other subjects with artistic practice can apply with a portfolio, a letter of motivation, and a research proposal.
