The MA Programme is a full-time two-year course. The structure is divided into artistic practice, seminars, theoretical courses and an MA project, amounting to 30 ECTS each term. A significant part of the studies takes place through group discussions and consultations in the students´ studio spaces. There is an emphasis on art practice and research involving a systematic building up of knowledge, where students are expected to develop good command of both practical and theoretical parameters of contemporary art. Students should be able to effectively relate their artistic practice to the discipline’s historical dimension and theoretical criteria in preparation for work as professional artists in the contemporary art field.
