About the MFA Programs

The MFA in Art and Public Space is a two-year master programme with an interdisciplinary approach to art production and a highlighted focus on public space. At the core of the programme lies an understanding of contemporary art as a critical spatial practice, providing a platform for new social and political encounters. The programme integrates professional practices, progressive pedagogies, intercultural dialogues, collaborative social engagements, and transdisciplinary explorations within an immersive educational environment. Students are actively encouraged to develop their practice through various methods of research and analytical thinking, as well as practical engagement with sites and situations encountered in our society today.

The MFA in Medium and Material Based Art is a multi-disciplinary, two-year fulltime study. The focus is on the development of each student’s individual art practice. The study emphasises art making and an innovative, critical attitude to medium and material-based art. The programme stimulates and supports experimental and interdisciplinary approaches to the department’s unique combination of subject areas: Print and Drawing, Textile, Ceramics, Metal and Jewellery.
