The two-year Design & Crafts MA programme prepares students for professional practice and helps them identify their own positions as artists — within their communities, society, design field, global economy, natural environment and other contexts. The programme provides students with as many real-world, hands-on situations as possible by giving them access to practising professionals and diverse opportunities. The programme also develops and changes with the students. With each new group, we start with roundtable discussions to find out what our students actually want. What experiences do they value? What is the focus of their interests? What are their professional dreams?

The students enter a common programme but also select a specialisation. Students who study in the Design & Crafts programme remain closely connected with their chosen discipline. Regardless of the specialisation, the MA programme focuses on collaboration. This includes group tasks that cross disciplines so that students with different backgrounds and study experience work together. A significant part of the coursework takes place in the form of workshops (supervised by international lecturers), which aim to break the routine and provide inspiration.... [-]

Vision

Contemporary Art Practice is changing dramatically.

The creative force of the artist to not only produce artifacts but also to perform and activate has broadened the opportunity for artists to enter diverse fields. Artists react to observations of the world we live in, translating experience into art production and interventions. Merging genres and media –for example drawing with sound recording, or land art with video – creates new contexts for the expanding field of art practice.

The Contemporary Art Program at the Master’s level emphasizes meeting the public ¬– be it in the museum or public square, self-initiated or organized by curators – to create a framework for an individual history of practice. Dialogues with Srishti faculty, practitioners from around the world, architects, horticulturists, scientists, designers and more develop a platform for building life-long art practices and networks. Making and critical thinking are fundamental to the aims of the program.... [-]
