Transart Institute is a student-centered, self-directed MFA program,
uniquely located in Europe offering an accredited two year low-residency
course for working artists, teachers and all professionals in related fields
who are seeking advancement in visual arts and new media. The innovative
program consists of three intensive summer residencies with lectures,
workshops, critiques, seminars, performances and exhibitions in Europe and
two shorter, optional winter residencies in New York. In the four semesters
between residencies, students create their own course of study realizing
individual art and research projects with the support of faculty and
self-chosen artist mentors wherever they work and live.

The Transart MFA program is geared towards the development of a sustainable
artistic praxis rather than training in certain media or genres, challenging
students to think conceptually and work creatively in new ways. Current
students work with animation, curating, digital media, film, gaming, graphic
design, installation, painting, performance, photography, robotics,
sculpture, sound, text, video, virtual reality.


Transart faculty comes from a wide range of academic and artistic
backgrounds as well as geographic locations. Current theoretical areas of
expertise include software art, curatorial work, cyberfeminism, interface
technologies, born-digital arts, continental philosophy, media, conflict and
peace studies, social studies in colonialism, capitalism and tourism, and
contemporary asian art history. Studio faculty include international artists
working with sound, performance, dance and choreography, photography,
drawing, sculpture, clothing design, film and video, intervention and
installation art.


The majority of Transart students are emerging and mid-career artists and
teachers at tertiary institutions. Transart Institute's residencies are a
true meeting place for cultural exchange. Current students will converge for
the summer residency from areas as diverse as Puerto Rico, Pakistan,
Iceland, Croatia, Ethiopia, Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, Austria, Egypt, the
Netherlands, Philippines, UK and US.


The deadline for scholarship applications is May 1, 2009, the final
application deadline to the program for 2009 without scholarships is June
