Applications are now being accepted for the MA program in SPACE STRATEGIES: 
Exploratory Art in Public Contexts at Berlin-Weissensee School of Art. 
Application Period:
05/01/2010 - 05/31/2010 
This program offers an artistic/academic postgraduate qualification for transdisciplinary projects in the public sphere. It is aimed at the interface between the arts and the sciences, at the type of self-directed artistic work in public contexts that is increasingly sought after in the new fields of independent cultural work and culturalnetworks.

Students will learn and develop integrative methods of working, including qualitative research techniques as well as field study, practical site research and body-oriented performance strategies. Innovative teaching methods combine theory and artistic practice into an integrated learning process: Approaches from contemporary cultural, media and spatial theory are taught alongside the production and documentation of transdisciplinary work in public spaces.

The curriculum also covers organizing and financing projects in cooperation with international and Berlin-based cultural institutions.

The two-year tuition-based program is intended for undergraduate degree holders in a variety of fields – visual artists, designers, architects, media and cultural theorists, sociologists – who wish to obtain a postgraduate degree (MA) in the arts.
