You will develop within society, together with people who aren't artists, your own interrelational artistic practice and strategies to connect, to create involvement, to develop collaboration or participation. This can be seen as your own artistic signature.
Facing a world that is more and more oriented towards quick results, accountability, protocols and non-human ambitions, the interrelational artist experiences and learns to bring in the human scale, the artistic open attitude, and a general, critical, open ended and comparative way of working. The Interrelational Art Practices study programme, offered by Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen offers you a context to reflect on the meaning, the values, the methods and potentialities of interrelational artistic practices in non-artistic contexts. Interrelational artistic practices develop from the issues that arise from the context they are embedded in.This means that they do not develop artistic concepts and projects to merely reflect on societal issues within an art related context, or to place them into a domain outside the arts, but to turn them into life possibilities while incorporating the context they critically evaluate. This way of working results in practices that are processual by nature in which working towards physical artistic end results are not an aim in itself. The physical means are elements and tools alongside skills, attitude and critical awareness from which artistic methodologies are being developed that form the basis of artistic relational practices.
The programme enables graduates to secure a constant and prominent position on the various platforms within the fields of interrelational art practices. The degree also gives them better prospects at acquiring teaching positions in Bachelor programmes or starting a PhD.
