Shadow Channel is a two-year master’s programme in film, design and propaganda.
In recent years, high-definition video has democratised as a medium. Online platforms have lowered the cost of uploading and distributing films to zero. Social media are dominated by streaming video. Today, anyone with a smartphone has a movie camera at his/her disposal. It is now completely natural to think, sketch, and communicate in video. HD is the new A4.

The master in Critical Studies is a two- year postgraduate programme for research and theory. The programme offers an open, interdisciplinary environment for the development of an independent research practice, while providing a rigorous grounding in critical theory, research methods and writing techniques. We are especially interested in forms of inquiry and study that are at odds with traditional academic frameworks, including practice-led research and other intersections of research, practice and theoretical inquiry.

The Dirty Art Department
Course director: Jerszy Seymour
Tutors and guests: Saâdane Afif, Daniel Dewar, Florence Parot, Catherine Somzé, Noam Toran
The Dirty Art Department presents itself as an open space for all possible thought, creation and action. It sees itself as a dynamic paradox, flowing between the pure and the applied, the existential and the deterministic, the holy and the profane. It is concerned with individuality, collectivity and our navigation of the complex relationship between the built world and the natural world and between other people and ourselves.

The Studio for Immediate Spaces (SIS) investigates spaces in all their forms and implications. It is a temporary autonomous platform for reflections ranging from commentary and analysis to current spatial realities and production processes. Using the tools of the geographer, the urban planner, the architect or the designer, we create new grounds for research, blurring the boundaries between science and politics, art and architecture.
