Overview

Design practice and theory are co-taught, encouraging dialogue in relation to current social issues and civic urgencies that are relevant today, where the role of design is valued as a key tool for social change. We are committed to supporting ambitious and diverse context specific and situated research approaches.

The programme

The Ecology Futures Masters programme offered by St. Joost Master Institute for Visual Cultures , part from Avans University of Applied Sciences focusses on how art and design can help define and change the narrative around today's anthropocentric worldview. Through artistic research rooted in scientific methodologies, students will be challenged to develop their own position, both theoretical and practical.

Programme Structure

  • Linked to the new Material Incubator lab space, students will be encouraged to explore and engage with the biological world as a way to express concepts, directly incorporating living matter into their work. 
  • Together we will envision all kinds of different ecological futures, developing critical work about our position as humans in relation to all other living and non-living entities, aiming to achieve a radical shift in perception on society today.
