Fine Art opens windows on the visual world by mapping a broad spectrum of phenomena and attitudes connected to that visual world – and to life itself.

The MA in Fine Art and Design, programme Fine Art in Utrecht is a two-year, full-time English language course. Besides traditional Fine Art forms such as painting, sculpture and photography, the programme focuses on transmedial forms of visual expression and research. These include media art, performative art, spatial practice, critical studies, artistic research and curatorial practice.

We focus on art production in relation to the topical debate within the field of art and the questions that the today's world presses on us. The programme consists of seminars, workshops, studios and tutorials, in which artists, architects, curators, and various theorists share their knowledge, creativity and professional insights with Fine Art students.

The curriculum consists of four semesters with different focal points: Studio Practice, Spatial Practice, Curatorial Practice, and Curatorial Project. Parallel to this runs a discursive programme with a focus Critical Studies, Concept Development, Artistic Research and Research Essay.

We collaborate closely with BAK (Base for Active Knowledge, Utrecht) and the MA programme Scenography at HKU.

The programme is concluded with a curated final presentation.

The MA Programme Fine Art was previously known as MaHKU and as such, has a rich twelve-year history.

As of 1 September 2017 it continues in a new guise as a program of the HKU Master of Fine Art and Design. What stays the same is our international orientation and our focus on the current debate about Fine Art, curatorial practice and research.

Lecturers include a.o. Lara Almarcegui, Tiong Ang, Jeremiah Day, Maria Hlavajova, Jan Kaila, Annette Krauss, Geert Lovink, Falke Pisano, Liza May Post, Domeniek Ruyters, Janwillem Schrofer, Henk Slager (course director), Mick Wilson, and Edwin Zwakman.

The programme is open to candidates who have a bachelor degree in a relevant discipline. Since its start in 2004, students from 45 different countries have studied in the programme.
