The HES-SO Master’s in Visual Arts is jointly run by the three Swiss French speaking schools: HEAD – Geneva, ECAL – Lausanne and ECAV – Sierre.

HEAD – Geneva, traditionally the largest visual arts school in Switzerland, offers three of the five HES-SO Master’s in Visual Arts majors.

WORK.MASTER CONTEMPORARY ARTISTIC PRACTICES
TRANS– ART EDUCATION
CCC CRITICAL CURATORIAL CYBERMEDIA

These various programmes create bridges though each one is designed as a highly individualised trans-disciplinary study platform defined by the work and projects of each artist or research group. Thus each orientation encourages the maturation of a personal work or a collective project already geared to the professional art scene and social reality.


WORK.MASTER CONTEMPORARY ARTISTIC PRACTICES

4 full-time semesters – 120 ECTS credits

http://head.hesge.ch/spip.php?rubrique236&lang=en

 
WORK.MASTER is structured around the embodiment of a personal project on a 1:1 scale. It has its place on the Geneva art scene; a scene broadly filled with cross-cutting concerns and internationally open.

WORK.MASTER’s intends to contribute to the development of new artistic practices within the expanded field of visual culture, and to train artists able to adapt to new situations and wanting to respond to today’s challenges while being able to face a demanding international context.

The programme time is balanced between personal research reflexion and group brainstorming. The work pace alternates between workshop research and experimentation, internal courses, meetings with external partners (artistes, theorists et curators, agents and politicians, cultural institutions), visits and trips abroad as well as practical encounters such as personal exhibits and group project presentations.

The courses are mainly given in French

 

TRANS– ART EDUCATION

4 full-time semesters – 120 ECTS credits

http://head.hesge.ch/spip.php?rubrique237&lang=en

 
The programme is based on the student’s artistic experience. Under the leadership of art and theory specialists, this mental exercise aims at translating, transcribing and transferring one’s own artistic experience and to share or propose it to others. In fact, it is to answer the question: “How, on the basis of my own work and my relation to creation, can I guide children or adults and establish teaching and workshops where they can practice creation and find their own forms of expression?”

Audience: All students who, on the basis of their basic artistic principles, wish to explore the broadest fields of artistic and cultural transmission: editing, interactions with the population, art and/or heritage mediation workshops in an associative or institutional environment. The TRANS programme also opens the doors to teaching.

The courses are mainly given in French

 

CCC – CRITICAL CURATORIAL CYBERMEDIA

Research-Based MA Programme

4 full-time semesters – 120 ECTS credits

http://www.ccc-programme.org/
http://head.hesge.ch/spip.php?rubrique48&lang=en

 

The CCC Research-Based MA Programme is a fully English-speaking programme offering a strong intellectual and conceptual foundation in critical thinking. The students are trained to become independent researchers capable of conceiving innovative solutions to issues related to a variety of fields such as Identity Micropolitics, Critical Theory, Political Ecology, Cyberculture, Cosmopolitics and European Communities, Future Studies. Collaborative and individual projects are applicable through situated, discursive, interventionist art practices, tactical and digital media.

The Programme emphasizes research training and initiates projects in cooperation with transcontinental partner self-organizations and institutions. It concentrates on developing a prospective PhD seminar in art praxis.

Engaged students trained in disciplines as various as law, sciences, polytechnics, humanities, politics, economics and transdisciplinary practices as well as professionals and lifelong learners are welcome.
