MIT Programme in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT)

School of Architecture, Cambridge, USA

The Master of Science in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a rigorous two-year programme for artists-thinkers advancing their critical and production practices. Research, pedagogy, and MIT's culture of scientific inquiry and technological advancement inform current explorations: cinema and its migrations; art in the public sphere; performance, video, photography and related media; and spatial and sonic experimentation.

ACT graduate students are challenged to question the aesthetic, historical, cultural, social and ethical implications of their work. Critical thinking, knowledge mining and creative engagement, along with explorations of changing public and private spheres are of particular relevance.

In addition to engaging in transdisciplinary projects with researchers in departments, labs and centres at MIT, ACT faculty work with scholars and institutions in the US and around the globe including Brazil, Great Britain, Finland, Norway, Germany, Bosnia, China, and Japan, bringing external reviewers, artists, speakers and students to visit and collaborate with ACT students and faculty. The Office of the Arts at MIT extends the opportunities available to students for collaboration and exchange with internationally recognized artists and scholars.

Application deadline is 31 December 2016.
