Exhibit and perform internationally while you study
Uniquely international for exchange and connections across cultural boundaries, with intensives in Berlin and New York, Transart’s low-residency PhD, MFA and Certificate programs offer a plethora of input at residencies with dozens of innovative workshops, artist talks, lectures, pecha kuchas, walkshops, seminars, cultural tours to choose from; extensive individual and full group critiques with artists and curators; and performances, pop-up events and exhibitions to participate in. A recent residency program courses and events are here: http://www.transart.org/category/events-projects/).
Low-residency MFA Creative Practice
After the residency choose from an extensive pool of international curators, artists and theorists for advise and critique for your self-directed, independent art projects working in whatever media best expresses your vision.
Ongoing connections, critique and support are essential ingredients for a vital artistic practice and successful academic career. Alumni join an international group of emerging and mid-career artists and curators in the Transart Collective (transartcollective.org) to stay connected and active, continuing to show, curate and perform together internationally.
Students who have previous graduate-level coursework can apply credits towards advanced standing. We will consider applications from students without a first degree who can show evidence of relevant professional experience. Students who are interested in earning a practice-based PhD can apply for the fast-track after one-year on the MFA program.
For New York-based artist Virgil Wong “the community I’ve become a part of through Transart is already much more immersive than what I’ve developed in ten years of living and working as an artist in New York City”. German photographer and performer Angelika Rinnhofer found: “…freedom and flexibility. Since a large number of students are accomplished artists and earn a living, Transart’s concept is ideal to work toward a degree and to expand one’s artistic career in addition to having a job.”
