A place of making, a site for thinking, an environment to study, talk, be, research, receive tutorial support and produce work. With a faculty of internationally acclaimed artists, writers and curators, access to excellent workshop facilities, good studio spaces and rich library resources, the tuition-free Master of Fine Art programme at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts is dedicated to giving master’s students every possibility of taking their work to the next level.

The master’s programme is designed to provide space and make time for the in-depth conceptual discussion and practical exploration of the potentials of each student’s practice, in self-directed research, studio work, one-on-one tutorials, group critiques, theory courses, and seminar as well as project-based teaching. Composed of experienced professionals with ample expertise in interdisciplinary conceptual approaches as well as medium-specific practices, the faculty is prepared to formulate critical challenges and provide support in response to the individual student’s artistic concerns.

Scenarios for Going Public is a pilot project for students of the master’s programme at the Academy of Fine Art in Oslo. In their first year, students will be seeking engagements beyond the safety of the art context, their fellow students and their friends. As applicants, the master’s programme is looking for artists who have built their own practice working independently, and now feel the need to test and expand their premises, so as to open their work to new fields of possibility in conceptual as well as practical terms. The master’s programme’s faculty is fully committed to inspiring and assisting this development. Study projects initiated and led by master’s students are encouraged and supported by the programme.

The master’s programme at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts is a lively place of urban learning. As such it is part of the landscape of institutions and art initiatives driving the current transformation of Oslo into one of the most active cities for producing, exhibiting and discussing contemporary art and culture in Northern Europe today.
