Masters of Art and Design

As the postgraduate department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam, the Sandberg Instituut offers master's programmes in Fine Arts (MFA), Interior Architecture (MIA) and Design (MDes). The Sandberg Instituut launches two new temporary master's programmes in September 2016: Reinventing Daily Life and Master of Voice. The permanent departments - Critical Studies, Design, Dirty Art Department, Fine Arts, and Studio for Immediate Spaces - are also accepting new students.

Reinventing Daily Life examines the connections between art and daily life, between people and art, and between society and the artist. Students will embark upon a quest for a new balance between supply and demand; searching for pressing questions and issues that people are struggling with; and finding a connection between the autonomous power of their work and the community they produce their work for. Reinventing Daily Life will function as a laboratory where ways to improve the quality of life are found, resulting in integrated fantasy and creativity.

Master of Voice is a temporary master's programme examining the voice as a unique discipline. The focus is on the human voice, as a means to or an end in itself, within artistic practice. The course is intended for students who want to work with the/their voice; for those who want to explore the voice in its various social, cultural and technological appearances, ranging from vocal speech and "the speech act" to singing. The Master of Voice includes a special orientation on gender and technology.

Application deadline is 1 April 2016.
