Program description

Situated Design

During this two-year Master programme, students from various disciplines learn how to provide meaning to the world outside of the studio. In an interdisciplinary learning environment, students will explore how to take environmental, social, cultural and political factors as the basis for design processes.

Through exposure to a variety of design methodologies and practices, students learn to iterate design concepts and are able to analyze, inform and shape their projects from concept to final project. Students learn to design with emerging technologies and creative software to create new perspectives and innovative forms of design and user experiences.

On the basis of partnerships with commercial, governmental, scientific and cultural organizations, the Master programme offers a range of real-world challenges to engage with. Working on these challenges, students develop the skills, experiences and critical mindset required for design after the situated turn. The programmed is led by core tutor, Ollie Palmer.

Master Institute of Visual Cultures

The Master Institute of Visual Cultures (MIVC) is part of St. Joost School of Fine Art & Design, which is part of the Avans University of Applied Sciences. All Master programs of the MIVC are housed within a single campus location, close to the heart of the city of ’s-Hertogenbosch. TheMIVC aims to achieve international standards of excellence in the master education of artists and designers and related practitioners. It aims to achieve these through the quality of its teaching, research and practice and through its relationship with the institutions, industries and technologies associated with the disciplines of art and design.

It is our ambition to contribute to the world we live in, working collaboratively and creatively with the cultural and creative sector, NGO’s, business and government, to generate new knowledge and exchange of that knowledge, to imagine another future capable of transforming the world we live in. The MIVC provides a transformative education, empowering students to become the new generation of artists and designers who will contribute in unconventional ways to changing the complex and interconnected world we live in. By creating a unique educational environment, where the tradition of 24/7 studio practices sit at ease with practices driven by ideas and context, and where artists and designers together, through an interchange of ways of thinking, create new knowledge to tackle some of the most pressing and challenging societal issues of our time. 

Emphasis is placed on the role of the artist and designer in society and on modes of criticality, to navigate, rethink and transform the complexity of contemporary life. Highlighting the societal ramification of creative work, we see it as our civic responsibility to be a thought leader, demonstrating the value of creativity to society, and through dissemination to contribute to increased awareness and an understanding of the importance of art and design as a field of knowledge.
