Master of Fine Arts
Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK)
The Master of Arts in Fine Arts at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) occupies a strong position on the international scene. The main aims of the programme are to promote and deepen individual and collaborative approaches to artistic and media practice, and their various strategies and procedures. The MA in Fine Arts brings together artists, media authors, curators and theorists. Coursework focuses evenly on individual and/or collaborative development. The programme is aimed at fostering creative individuals capable of practicing their authorship on a high aesthetic level, and who possess in-depth knowledge of artistic practice and the capacity for critical reflection on culture and society. Coursework combines artistic and theoretical work with discursive, critical practice, in order to create a productive and well-integrated working atmosphere to which staff and students make equal contributions. Upon successful completion, graduates are capable of assuming active roles in the art system, the cultural and creative industries, cultural institutions, and higher education institutions.
The Zurich University of the Arts is amongst the largest art schools in Europe. The school comprises state-of-the-art facilities including production workshops, exhibition and performance spaces and a strong network to the international art community. As of September 2013, ZHdK will be moving into its brand new Campus Toni-Areal where all disciplines come together under one roof to enhance and foster a vivid atmosphere for transdisciplinary research and creation.
