Main programmes:

Fine Arts (MFA); course director: Krist Gruijthuijsen—tutors: Nicoline van Harskamp, Raimundas Malašauskas, Jason Dodge. The programme retains its focus on the notions of autonomy and creation, while addressing the social and economical roles and implications of these traditional parameters of art production. The programme is structured around modules exploring the realms of language, image, object, performance and representation.

Design / Think Tank for visual strategies (MDes); course director: Annelys de Vet—tutors: Nina Folkersma, Jan-Kees van Kampen, Dimitri Nieuwenhuizen, Rob Schröder, Daniel van der Velden. The department functions as a cultural think tank for visual strategies. Students commit themselves to various cultural, social and political research-based visual projects, putting together their own programme with an open curriculum and creating hybrid forms of communication that draw on their skills as writers, editors, visualizers, programmers, conceptualizers and designers.

Applied Arts / Dirty Art Department (MDes); course directors: Jerszy Seymour and Catherine Geel—tutors: Clemence Seilles, Stephane Barbier Bouvet. This programme provides an open space for all possible thought, creation and action. Acting as a designer is seen as a dynamic paradox, flowing between the pure and applied, the existential and deterministic, and the holy and profane. It explores the relationship between the built and natural world, between the collective and the individual. The programme is open to designers, artists, bankers, sceptics, optimists, philosophers, thinkers, farmers, anarchists…anyone with an inquiring mind.

Interior Architecture / Studio for Immediate Spaces (MIA); course director: Anne Holtrop—tutors: Bas Princen, Jan de Vylder, Inge Vinck, Jo Taillieu, John Lonsdale, Sophie Krier, Lucy Cotter, Tom Vandeputte. This programme welcomes all those who are eager to experiment and explore the spaces around us, to examine how these are made up, what they consist of and how people use and relate to them. The course is open to students with a Bachelor’s degree in Design, Interior Design / Spatial Design or Architecture or in related fields, as is anyone that can show comparable work experience. (MIA) our first temporary programme on vacancy in buildings and public space will end in the summer of 2013. Course directors Eric and Ronald Rietveld will then present the results in a publication.

This year two new temporary Master programmes will focus on urgent questions in art, design and society. Please check our website for the latest information.

Material Utopias (MFA/MDes); course director: Louise Schouwenberg—tutors: Folkert de Jong, Jens Pfeifer, Bastienne Kramer a.o. The programme aims to exploit the making process to the fullest. Experimentation with both traditional and new materials, and reflection on their characteristics and inherent meanings, will play a major role. The student is expected to possess highly developed craft skills in working with a specific material, and the openness to expand and push its borders, as well as develop expertise with new materials and media.

Art and Learning / School of Missing Studies (MFA); course directors: Bik van der Pol—tutors: Ayreen Anastas, Samira Ben Laloua, Maria Boletsi, Ernst van den Hemel, Rene Gabri, Maria Lind, Sarah Pierce, Praneet Soi a.o. “While public space is being transformed beyond recognition, art education has never been so close to, yet so far away from cultural production. Education has fallen behind, as political and economical forces have come to shape the perception of culture. Education and learning need to reclaim space, as they are means to participate in politics, creating forms of political socialization.”
