Utrecht Graduate School Of Visual Art And Design Master Programmes
MaHKU, the Graduate School for Visual Art and Design in Utrecht, The Netherlands, offers one-year Masters programmes designed for an international body of students. The Masters programs' core is the novel field of artistic research supported by a cross-discipline debate.
MaHKU students are from various backgrounds such as Editorial Design, Interior Design, Fashion Design, Urban Design, and Fine Art, and come from all over the world and from all continents.
In an intensive seminar and workshop program with artists, designers, architects, curators, and theorists, students explore a variety of research pathways which nonetheless all pertain to the field of artistic research. While exploring idiosyncratic ways of producing research questions and solving them, students not only seek to deepen their proficiency and to expand their knowledge both in visual and theoretical work. In their master research work, they also contribute to the bifurcation of the field of artistic research. The development and realization of MaHKU research trajectories create links with other disciplines and involves a close collaboration with a platform of art and design institutions.
The masters degrees are internationally acknowledged and accredited by the Open University Validation Services in London (OUVS). The deadline for applications is 30 April 2007.
The internationally published MaHKUzine - Journal of Artistic Research - presents articles and research reports by guest lecturers outside the regular curriculum, by staff, and by outstanding students.
