The Master of Research in Art and Design is a one-year postgraduate programme with an international and interdisciplinary orientation. A select group of artists and designers with a MA degree is offered the opportunity to further develop their practice under professional guidance, to participate in research seminars and set up artistic projects together.

The programme includes close supervision of the artistic research as well as the elaboration of a theoretical discourse on contemporary art and society. Student supervision takes the form of three complementary training modules: production, documentation, and presentation, following the interdependence of these components in present-day artistic practice.

The core team consists of three people: Wesley Meuris (visual artist), Hilde Van Pelt (art historian) and Pieter Vermeulen (art critic and curator). In addition to that, numerous guest lecturers from a range of fields are invited to analyse, situate and interpret the work of the students. Group discussions are organised in each training module to help students sharpen their artistic profile. Assignments and in-depth individual discussions with the supervisors and guest lecturers will help to discover, revise or criticise the notion of research in the students' own work. Next to the three training modules – production, documentation and presentation – the programme includes a masterclass that typically consists of an intensive, week-long workshop.

The end of year exhibition for 2015-2016 takes place at curatorial collective Komplot in Brussels, under the guidance of curator Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk (NL) and in dialogue with a selection of artists from Brussels. More information on our website.

We welcome artists and designers seeking to expand the research aspect of their practice. Holders of MA degrees in both visual arts and design or other fields, with an interest in artistic research, can apply with a portfolio, a letter of motivation and a research proposal.
