Master Postgraduate Rotterdam

Course description

Qualification Master of Arts
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary The Fine Art programme at the Piet Zwart Institute is based on the premise that contemporary visual art is connected with a wider field of cultural and social practices.
Course description The programme connects artistic production with the public realm of discourse and display. Our two-year course provides an international platform in which young artists can develop their practice through independent work as well as dialogue with artists, curators and theorists from a diversity of disciplines. We offer studio space and technical facilities, individual tutorial support, and an annually changing programme of thematic projects and lectures that function as a framework for the joint exploration of issues relevant to contemporary art and culture. The Fine Art programme plays an active role in the art world. Part of our programme is a lively collaboration with practitioners and cultural institutions, a public series of lectures and screenings, and a series of publications realised in collaboration with Revolver Archiv für aktuelle Kunst. Our programme is recognised and funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education.
Study subjects Fine art
Course objectives The Fine Art programme is based on an understanding of contemporary art as embedded within a larger field of cultural, social and political practices. It encourages critical discourse on artistic practice and places an emphasis on self-reflection and analysis. Furthermore, public interaction is given a special focus.
