The final year students from the Master of Arts in Fine Arts and Design programme in the St. Joost Master Institute of Visual Cultures are proud to present their work at the Graduation Research Hub on May 16–20. 

In front of external experts and their peers, the graduates will present their final project, current trends and theoretical underpinnings articulated in their thesis, providing the context, rationale, and findings of their research. Following that, the students and external experts will engage in discussion about the research and the invited public will be welcome to ask questions. In the Hub, we will witness the research of students that completed one of the three interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary master courses of the programme: Ecology FuturesSituated Design and Visual Arts and Post-Contemporary Practices. From moving image, to performances, to sculptures, to installations, the versatility of the practices will reveal an interchange of ways of thinking and co-research that holds the potential of collective imagination for another future. The Graduation Research Hub will take place at V2_Lab for the Unstable Media in Rotterdam and livestreamed here

During the Hub, the external experts will select three nominees for the EKP Excellence in Research Award. The EKP Excellence in Research Award is an annual award of 2,500 EUR for the best graduate research at master level, sponsored by SDK Vastgoed. The award acknowledges students’ creative ability to progress novel ideas into stimulating works and accentuates the transformative potential of artists and designers in the world. Ananya Panda from the Situated Design course was last year’s winner, announced during the Dutch Design Week from the hands of jury members Aric Chen (Het Nieuwe Instituut) and Saskia van Stein (International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam). This year, the award will be given by a new jury during the Graduation Show, which will take place form June 30 to July 3.   

We invite you to watch the Graduation Research Hub Livestream via and to join us in the Graduation Show in Den Bosch, or online also here.
