What will you study?
Through a combination of studio project and theoretical study at Kingston University, together with two two-week periods of work in Rotterdam, you will have the opportunity to develop and apply your chosen art practices, culminating in an exhibition in that city. Rotterdam has been chosen because of the excellent connections, professional experience and knowledge of this city and its cultures that your MA course team members have built up over the past six years.
You will also focus on the concept of ‘transdisciplinarity’, with an emphasis on learning from practice and through discursivity and topicality. Within this, there is a further emphasis on making findings public – by means of exhibitions, websites, publications and events. Through your programme of practical projects undertaken in Kingston and Rotterdam, you will investigate and research the artistic ideas and cultural policies that are currently being pursued in different cities in Europe.
