Course content

With a new group of students, the master's programme starts with an intensive exchange between the students and the master team.
This course will give students in the first part an overview of the Master programme: how it will work, discuss the modules and subjects, discuss the Vademecum and the Trotter (study guide), talk about the Master project and mentoring sessions.
In the second part of the course, the main teacher-artist will present different methodologies in artistic research and provide tools for the students to share, reflect and present their master project to their peers and the team present. Discussions, reflections, reading and studio practice will involve creating frameworks and methodologies to acknowledge embodied practice and research aspects within their artistic practice.
