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. This year's masterclass will be led by Pieter Vermeulen, titled 'Knowing Me, Knowing You', on the topic of lecture-performances.

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.

The academic year will start in October 2016. To download the application form and for more information on the programme, guest professors, masterclasses and admission requirements, see our website. If you have any further questions, please contact Pieter Vermeulen (address below).
