Transart Institute: Call for Applications

TRANSART INSTITUTE seeks independent, inquisitive and imaginative artist for its MFA program. In a uniquely international setting, Transart Institute offers an accredited two year low-residency course for working artists, teachers and all professionals in related fields who are seeking advancement in visual arts and new media. The program consists of three intensive summer residencies in Europe filled with lectures, workshops, critiques, seminars, performances and exhibitions and two shorter, optional winter residencies in New York. In the four semesters between residencies, students create an individual course of study realizing art and research projects with the support of faculty and self-chosen artist mentors wherever they work and live.

The Transart MFA program is geared towards the development of a sustainable artistic praxis rather than training in certain media or genres, challenging students to think conceptually and work creatively in new ways. Current students work with animation, curating, digital media, film, gaming, graphic design, installation, painting, performance, photography, robotics, sculpture, sound, text, video, virtual reality.


The majority of Transart students are emerging and mid-career artists and teachers at tertiary institutions. Transart Institute’s residencies are a true meeting place for cultural exchange. Current students will converge for the summer residency from areas as diverse as Puerto Rico, Pakistan, Iceland, Croatia, Ethiopia, Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, Austria, Egypt, the Netherlands, the Philippines, the UK and the US.


Transart faculty comes from a wide range of academic and artistic backgrounds as well as geographic locations. Current theoretical areas of expertise include software art, curatorial work, cyberfeminism, interface technologies, born-digital arts, continental philosophy, media, conflict and peace studies, social studies in colonialism, capitalism and tourism, and contemporary asian art history. Studio faculty include international artists working with sound, performance, dance and choreography, photography, drawing, sculpture, clothing design, film and video, intervention and installation art.
