Online Open Day: Master Artistic Research

An Artistic Researcher is interested in research as an artistic approach. The two-year Master at the KABK is an intensive programme, created for driven artists who might have a background in all disciplines of art.

The goal of the programme is to fade all boundaries between practice-oriented research, thinking, and writing, with new surprising results.

During the programme you will be thoroughly researching your interests by applying several methods. Experimenting, curiosity, reflection, and analysis are the essence of this programme. Besides maintaining a visual practice, writing is a considerable part of this programme. Not only to formulate your research plans but to develop your linguistic capabilities so that you can communicate complex artistic choices as well.

After this programme you will be able to further develop and maintain your independent research practice. Most Artistic Research alumni are working as visual artists and continue their research through commissioned assignments, residencies, exhibitions or other projects. Furthermore, this Master offers a thorough foundation for a practice-oriented Ph.D. position or a programme at a postgraduate research institute.
