Art in Context postgraduate MA program

Application period: February 15-March 15, 2017

Universität der Künste Berlin 
Institute for Art in Context
Einsteinufer 43
D-10587 Berlin 

The MA postgraduate program Art in Context offers 
a combination of transdisciplinary exchange and 
in-depth research for those seeking to situate 
their artistic practice in the wider field of 
society. It can be taken full-time over four 
semesters or part-time over six, free of tuition 
and without age restrictions.

At the Institute Art in Context, Prof. Dr. Jörg 
Heiser together with lecturers Heike-Karin Föll, 
Josephine Freiberg, Claudia Hummel, Wolfgang 
Knapp, Kristina Leko, and a team of guest 
lecturers, provide a wide range of seminars and, 
together with the students, organize projects, 
publications, conferences and exhibitions. Guest 
lectures and workshops with internationally 
renowned artists and intellectuals are a steadily 
increasing element of this program offering four 
study profiles that can be combined to form a 
specific field of expertise and practice: they 
include artistic work with social groups, with 
cultural institutions (including curatorial 
practice), in the public space (including public 
memorial culture), and in the context of visual 
culture and scientific image production. 

Requirements for admission to the program are: 
graduation certificate from an artistic/creative 
course of study at a recognized higher education 
institution, at least one year working experience 
in a relevant professional field, sufficient 
knowledge of German (all courses are held in 
German) and artistic talent.
