MASTER PROJECT 1 & 2
MASTER PROJECT is the main subject area of the study programme within the department of Art & Public Space. Students are asked to work individually or in a group on a project (or several smaller projects) within the 2 years of study. The focus of the MASTER PROJECT subject area is public space in its wider sense: its contextualization, research, analyses, production, presentation and mediation…as well as the manifestation of the final outcome of the project that should meet its publics within the public sphere. The MASTER PROJECT can employ various artistic devices and methods developed individually or within a group. It embraces the practical and theoretical as well as the ethical and legal issues associated with the working process in public space.
At the end of the two-year study, students will have learnt to become independent thinkers, producers and organizers of their own art practice. Through the MASTER PROJECT, they will learn how to conceptualize and produce an art project in public space as well as how to communicate, mediate and archive it.
