Master in Fine Arts at Umea Academy of Fine Arts 2017
The Umea Academy of Fine Arts offers an English-taught, two-year Master programme focused on artistic practice in a professional environment, with international connections through its faculty. Critical discourse on artistic practice, conditions of production and presentation and an emphasis on analysis and self-reflection contribute to an understanding of contemporary art located within a larger cultural, social, and political context. Guest artists, curators and other cultural thinkers from Sweden and abroad support the faculty in engaging students in contemporary creative initiatives worldwide. The programme comprises supervised and individual projects, lectures, seminars, group tutorials and study trips (Venice Biennale, Berlin Biennale, Manifesta, Documenta, Frieze New York). Well-equipped workshops for photo, video, sound, 3D printing as well as for wood, metal, plaster, bronze, printmaking, etc. are open to all students.
Each MFA student is provided with a single studio space within an international and English speaking environment. At the end of the MFA-programme, all students work towards a final group show presented at the internationally acclaimed Bildmuseet.
Students from EU member countries pay no tuition.
The deadline for submission is 1 March 2017.
