installation

Installation art has occupied a prominent place in the visual arts since the 1970s. In an installation, all media can be used and the relation to its surroundings are of utmost importance. The modern era has shown a growing interest among artists in an artistic practice as a kind of (temporary) entrepreneurship by setting up adventurous spaces within a larger context. Their motifs show a preoccupation with questioning the focus on the artistic object and are related to a discourse concerning a specific space for art.

An installation is not necessarily a large-scale enterprise but, above all, the result of a modus operandi that does not bind itself to any particular medium, but is particularly sensitive to the relationship between image and environment. This way the piece may become site-specific. The space where, and the way in which the work is shown contribute to its meaning. Each artist gives spatiality and site-specificity a personal interpretation. This practice, moreover, is often connected to the public space, as artists do not necessarily keep their work within the confines of the studio or the traditional exhibition space.

In the installation art major we offer several different media. A critical discourse concerning (moving) images, object and space is the starting point for the creation of installations. This means that visual means such as objects, drawings, text, photos, moving images and the human body can be used in a possibly temporary, site-specific and spatial whole. Because production and presentation often coincide, students are stimulated to frequently put up work both inside and outside the studio. These public presentations offer students the opportunity to put their vision and practice to the test of new developments. Through individual coaching and group discussions, students learn to focus their intentions and master the development of an installation. The emphasis lies very much on developing a critical approach towards the use of visual means.

In the studio each student has his or her own space for working and studying. Other areas in the studio are reserved for specific technical shops (wood, metal, digital technology …) around a central display area.

Students are coached by a team of lecturers, researchers and visiting professors who each contribute media, expertise and perspectives from their own practice.
