About the Programme

This international master's programme is for those who are practising artists with an interest in interdisciplinary artistic situations. The programme's focus examines the artist's interaction with the surrounding community, as well as aspects related to location and dramatic structure in the artistic work. You apply for the programme with an investigative project that then runs through the entire programme. You can examine new perspectives and challenge your practices through encounters with your fellow students, your supervisor and guest teachers from the arts as well as experts from other fields. The programme prepares students for postgraduate studies.

This programme is conducted in English.
