New MA pathways in: Visual Arts and Post 
Contemporary Practice, Situated Design, Ecology 

How can we create a future that is something 
else, another kind of world that we would like to 
live in?

This question lies at the heart of our new 
interdisciplinary MA pathways in Art & Design. 
Our highly ambitious and versatile institution is 
currently in a stage of development and growth. 
The expanded pedagogical scope of the MIVC 
programmes has created new opportunities for 
interdisciplinarity and co-research within our 
existing course. Our distinct programmes of 
study, Visual Arts and Post-Contemporary 
Practice, Situated Design and Ecology Futures, 
investigate questions of contemporary culture, 
politics, media and climate change. Students work 
together to address urgent global challenges of 
the 21st century: Migrant Aesthetics, heterodox 
Identities, economics of production, emerging 
technologies, ecology and the creative industries.

We support students by providing a learning 
environment for a transformative education, 
empowering students to become the new generation 
of artists and designers who will contribute in 
unconventional ways to transforming the complex 
and interconnected world we live in. By creating 
a unique educational environment, where the 
tradition of studio practices sit at ease with 
practices driven by ideas and context, and where 
artists, designers, and scientists together, 
through an interchange of ideas, create new 
knowledge to tackle some of the most pressing and 
challenging societal issues of our time.
