MA in Visual Culture and Contemporary Art (ViCCA)

Call for Applications

The School of Art, Design and Architecture of Aalto University, Finland welcomes applications for the two-year MA programme in Visual Culture and Contemporary Art (ViCCA). ViCCA is a programme for institutionally homeless and/or crossover artists with a focus on currently emerging practices of contemporary or post-contemporary art and/or popular visual culture. It focuses on tutoring students to develop and contextualise their own artistic and theoretical work. The programme explores new forms of artistic production and professional agency within the broader field of contemporary art and visual culture. Theory and practice are tightly interwoven, and emphasis is put on developing each student's artistic and theoretical thinking. The ViCCA major studies work through three focus areas: Sites, Senses and Situations; Words and Spaces; and Beings and Things.
