Overview

Media performers, artists and designers doing strange and unexpected things with technology: that is what the MADtech study programme is about. You are expected to employ and artistically explore hybrid technologies in order to imagine, interpret and change human interaction with a transforming world. To do so, you apply a tinkering playfulness and an experimental mentality, which are the key aspects in your development and research. This mentality, combined with a critical reflective attitude and conceptual skills, leads to unexpected perspectives and results in artistic multimedia, experimental design or performative work in any combination.

While MADtech students come from various professional backgrounds and fields of media, art or design, they all share a fascination with technology. The role that technology is going to play in your research exceeds that of a mere tool with predefined and process-shaping functionality. Instead, technology and its influence are examined critically, researched conceptually, used creatively in non-standard ways or developed individually to enable the creation of specific MADtech strangeness. The combination of disciplines gives you an opportunity to develop your artistic vision while deploying a hybrid artistic practice as an autonomous media performer, artist and designer. As your work engages with the world, you grow both as an individual and in your artistic practice, reinforcing the power of your imagination as well as exploring your own connection to a transforming and technologically charged society.

Career opportunities

As a master of Fine Arts you can continue to set up your own artistic practice, individually or as a member of an artistic collective.
