The Master Contemporary Arts Practice at Bern Academy of the Arts is a dynamic two-year, multi-disciplinary program focusing on the four study areas, Fine Arts, Sound Arts, Literary Writing/Translation, and Performance Art. Drawing upon a national and international network, this is the only such course in Switzerland. The program aims to foster independent artistic positions in a context of collective and interdisciplinary relationships. Individual mentoring sessions and group seminars enable exchanges among students and teaching staff across different fields of art.

Master students benefit from highly-personalized tutoring and courses that focus on both theory and issues of artistic practice. Joint events include study trips and theoretical seminars; presentations of students’ own work for discussion at colloquies; and showcasing projects at public events. An excellent infra­structure—artist and recording studios; mechanical workshops; and media libraries—provides the framework for this Master’s course, which can only be studied at Bern Academy of the Arts HKB.
