New MA pathways in: Visual Arts and Post Contemporary Practice, Situated Design, Ecology Futures

How can we create a future that is something else, another kind of world that we would like to live in?

This question lies at the heart of our new interdisciplinary MA pathways in Art & Design. Our highly ambitious and versatile institution is currently in a stage of development and growth. The expanded pedagogical scope of the MIVC programmes has created new opportunities for interdisciplinarity and co-research within our existing course. Our distinct programmes of study, Visual Arts and Post-Contemporary Practice, Situated Design and Ecology Futures, investigate questions of contemporary culture, politics, media and climate change. Students work together to address urgent global challenges of the 21st century: Migrant Aesthetics, heterodox Identities, economics of production, emerging technologies, ecology and the creative industries.

We support students by providing a learning environment for a transformative education, empowering students to become the new generation of artists and designers who will contribute in unconventional ways to transforming the complex and interconnected world we live in. By creating a unique educational environment, where the tradition of studio practices sit at ease with practices driven by ideas and context, and where artists, designers, and scientists together, through an interchange of ideas, create new knowledge to tackle some of the most pressing and challenging societal issues of our time.
