Oslo National Academy of the Arts,
The Visual Arts Department (Kunstfag)
Master of Art and Public Space

The Master of Art and Public Space is a new, two-year, in-depth programme, which focuses on how art and artistic practices operate in, use and relate to different public spaces beyond the traditional art institutions. The core of the programme consists of developing and creating public art projects, as well as analysing and exploring art in the context of different public spaces, reception contexts and social structures. The study programme will provide practical and theoretical insights into public art as a diverse and complex area, and is intended to contribute to innovative approaches and artistic research and development within the area of art and public space.

Job description

We are seeking a Professor/Associate Professor for a 70% position, who will have the artistic and pedagogical responsibility for the development of the new Master of Art and Public Space programme. The position will involve building an academically attractive study programme based on a clear vision of the potential and challenges associated with public art. The Professor/Associate Professor should also promote greater reflection around the area of public art in general and the MA in particular.

The applicant must be fluent in both spoken and written English. It is a pre-requisite for the position that the applicant is either competent in Norwegian or will acquire basic Norwegian language skills. The position is for a fixed term of six years, with the possibility of extending for a further six years. In special circumstances, a shorter contract period may be considered.
