Fine Arts

The MA programme focuses on an in-depth examination of the students’ artistic practice. By means of reflection they advance their practice and relate it to the current as well as historical art context.

The programme ranges between experiment, research, theory and critical self-reflection.
The MA courses come in the shape of seminars, symposia and workshops conducted in blocks. The core aspect of your studies involves the artistic engagement and examination in an ongoing discourse with your mentors and external art experts. The Master programme helps you to develop your own aesthetic position. You enlarge upon the basics learnt in the BA course, extend them by means of reflection and relate them to the historical and current art context.
Master of Arts FHNW in Fine Arts programme is conducted in close cooperation with the Bern University of the Arts.

The two MA course comprises the sphere of the self (studio), the collective dimension (seminars and symposia) and the field of monitoring (one-on-one talks and plenary discussions). The studies’ contents, media and intellectual approaches are designed to advance your sense of self-responsibility.
