TRANS is addressed to art students wishing to further their research and to explore the fields of transmission from the basis of their own artistic standpoint. Dedicated to contemporary forms of transmission through art, it places the artistic project at the centre of a programme which combines personal work, joint questioning and the sharing of experiences. Individualised tutoring and workshops led by invited artists encourage students to affirm their own artistic language. Through partnerships with cultural and educational institutions, students carry out artistic and/or héritage communication projects and intervene in a practical manner with different publics in an association or institutional environment. TRANS also opens the way to teacher training.

Coordination: Claude-Hubert Tatot, head of the programme, Jean-Luc Manz and Vincent Kohler, professors.

WORK.MASTER is addressed to students-artists who wish to broaden and develop their practical work within a framework which promotes a transversal approach, multiple perspectives and crossdisciplinary collaboration. Combining research and artistic practice (individual, collaborative or collective), the programme is structured around the realisation of full-scale personal projects. The programme gives students the opportunity to contextualise their work through real life artistic interventions (in the public space, exhibitions, publications, radio programmes…). For WORK.MASTER, art is above all “in action”.
