Within KASK & Conservatorium, the fine arts traditionally occupy a central place. In the master's programme, students are given even more space than before to further develop their individual artistic practice.
In the sculpture studio, you will explore a personal approach to contemporary sculpture. As an undergraduate, you will be taught some basic techniques in class. You choose this pathway from 1st bachelor. In the master of liberal arts, the distinction between disciplines falls away.
The installation studio in the bachelor of fine arts reaches out to different media. A critical discourse on the (moving) image, the performative, object and space form the starting point in the design of the installation. If possible, your work of art becomes 'site-specific'; the place or manner in which you display the work contributes to its meaning. You choose this route from 1st bachelor onwards. In the master of fine arts, the distinction between the disciplines falls away.
In media art, we look for openings or contradictions between new and old media, virtual and physical, concept and matter, etc. We believe that technology can have an activating effect because analogue, mechanical or digital tools provide new artistic playing spaces. You choose this study path from 1st bachelor onwards. In the master of fine arts, the distinction between the disciplines falls away.
Painting has a great tradition, but also a current urgency within the field of contemporary, visual arts. In the bachelor's programme, we pay a lot of attention to the technology of painting, but also to the development of your artistic personality and visual language. You choose this study path from 1st bachelor onwards. In the master of fien arts, the distinction between the disciplines falls away.
We regard drawing as an autonomous form of expression. Visual research and experimentation are central. You choose this study path from 1st bachelor onwards. In the master of fine arts, the distinction between the disciplines disappears.
Performance gives new ways of looking at reality, at patterns that are obvious or hidden. A performative gesture, a gesture or a word can set something in motion. In this bachelor's programme, you investigate your relationship with your body, with others, materials, spaces, etc. You choose this programme from the 1st bachelor onwards. In the master of fine arts, the distinction between the disciplines falls away.
After an exploratory first bachelor year of graphic design, in second and third bachelor you can choose the printmaking track. Here you will approach graphic practices from the point of view of the visual arts. Three focuses allow you to explore the specific speaking of art and turn it into an individual artistic practice: what printing and reproduction techniques can mean for making art; the relationship of art to mass-media visual culture; publishing as an artistic strategy in making art and artists' books. In the master of graphic design, the distinction between the tracks falls away.
After an exploratory first bachelor's year of graphic design, you can opt for the illustration track in the second and third bachelor. You take a broad view of graphic visual narrativity and focus on developing techniques, research and working methods within the broad cluster of word, image and story. In the master of graphic design, the distinction between the pathways falls away.
