The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) is now accepting applications for the International Master of Fine Arts program starting in autumn 2019.

The International MFA program at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) is a two-year study program designed for artists with the ambition to develop and enrich their individual studio practice with cross-disciplinary investigations in a wide range of different fields of knowledge. Situated in the framework of NTNU, it is embedded in a study environment, rich of inputs and influences from other areas of research and methodologies that are non-artistic. KiT is situated outside of the NTNU campus in a former factory building. It is well connected to a small but vibrant local art scene with artist-run galleries, exhibition halls, and museums.

The program encourages graduate students to explore critical and innovative practices in both individual creative work and group projects. The curriculum is structured to expose students to diverse viewpoints and an array of professional practices that reflect contemporary issues and is in dialogue with a global community of artists and thinkers. It offers students a wide range of educational modules including studio visits, tutorials, group critiques, workshops, courses in theory and practice, guest lectures, study trips, exhibitions, as well as student-led initiatives and projects.

Students within the International MFA program have a studio space and access to collaborative workspaces and workshops for wood, metal, plaster, printmaking, photo, video, sound and computer-based work. Students carry out research independently, developing practical skills alongside developing their intellectual and critical abilities in working out their artistic positions. Project work is carried out under the close guidance of supervisors.

Within the program, we are looking for inquisitive minds and disciplinary border-crossers who are interested in creating connections between different fields of research. Students are expected to be curious, experimental, self-driven and ambitious, with a will to position and reposition individual artistic practice in current debates and discourses, and within the continuously changing field of contemporary art.

Courses offered focus on the notions of common space with artistic and architectural practices, theory and criticism in the context of contemporary art, the relation of visual culture to technology and current tendencies in global aesthetics. KiT's research area in Art and Ocean explores the potentials of research across art, science and technology in collaboration with renowned and powerful partners from both, science and technology as well as the world of art and culture.

Current faculty includes Anne-Karin Furunes, Felix Gmelin, Jacob Jessen, David Rych, Florian Schneider, Jeremy Welsh, and Susanne Winterling.

There are no tuition fees, also for non-EU/EEA students. Teaching language of all courses is English.

Applications are now open at NTNU. Please read the requirements and application guidelines first.
