Overview

All the specializations of the Visual Arts master focus on giving students the possibility to create artistically authored images and texts across media. Artistic and curatorial research as well as storytelling and critical practice play an important role in the curriculum. The overall vision is oriented towards the formation of responsible protagonists of the next society and cutting edge investigators of new forms of visual and narrative expression. The teaching staff includes leading artists, designers and photographers from Belgium and abroad. 

As a master student, you will choose your own project and formulate your own relevant research questions. You will demonstrate that you are able to work critically and innovatively within your chosen discipline or able to initiate multidisciplinary projects. You will work in a productive and stimulating environment in which confrontation and communication with other students and tutors are the driving force for deepening your own work.

Alongside design, you will focus on an ongoing critical analysis of your work process through academic writing and presentations. During the Critical Practices and interdisciplinary Critical Study you will learn research methodologies and collect, analyse and synthesise relevant information to answer your research questions. This will bring you insight into the manner in which designers operate in different geographical, historical and cultural contexts and will give you the necessary intellectual capacity to grow into the next generation of leading designers, authors and artists.
