The Master Institute of Visual Cultures

The Master Institute of Visual Cultures

The Master Institute of Visual Cultures is a diverse and dynamic community of artists, curators, activists, researchers and writers. The institute is committed to creating autonomous thinkers with a critical view of the world and the profession, offering programmes that both deepen your practice and broaden your perspective.

The programmes at the Master Institute have been evolving over the last years. We are growing into an Institute that represents an intellectual biotope for students and tutors to do research, reflect on and address evolving positions in art and design. 

In an environment where students share studio’s that are 24/7 accessible, we encourage students to take advantage of all the opportunities for exchange. We will be organizing workshops and research groups that are open to all students and have different lectures and invite guest tutors with the whole community in mind. The building will also allow us to interact with the public, offering possibilities for exhibitions and events. There will be a lot to discover for the curious. We are ready to explore the interaction of tutors and students from all the different programmes and look forward to all unexpected outcomes. The Master Institute will hopefully become a hotspot for serendipitous moments in art and design!

The programmes at the Master Institute of Visual Cultures are fully accredited by the Dutch higher education authorities and comply with European standards as set by the Bologna Agreement.
