Work & Practice

To help you to reinforce your artistic profession you will visit relevant institutions, centres of expertise and art fairs. This way you will meet a broad range of people from the professional field so that you can build your own network of useful and inspirational contacts. In addition, you will work within an open, cross-media network of artists, technologists and scientists to develop your entrepreneurial attitude, realise your ideas, sharpen your vision and share your questions and solutions. What is just as important, is your artist attitude. We expect you to think and act like an investigative artist in an international practice, bringing together different perspectives in exciting work and projects. As such, we will help you to master these organisational skills, to raise funds, organise support and promote projects to the public.

Partners in art

To allow you to meet the right people and work with the technology you need for your projects, we have strong ties to a number of institutions and organisations. Like our Art & Society Research Centre, which covers the practice based research of the Minerva Art Academy and consists of three research groups: Lifelong Learning in Music, Image in Context and Popular Culture, and Sustainability & Innovation. Through these partners you will be able to get in touch with researchers of the University of Groningen.

Working with the University of Groningen

We also work closely with the University of Groningen, where you can attend lectures. Furthermore, we have contacts with different university researchers working at an expert level, for instance in the field of cultural geography. Depending on the nature of your artistic project, we will also help you to meet new partners. In addition, we organise international trips and visits to relevant biennials and triennials, cultural institutions and exhibitions in order to broaden your perspective. This includes a trip to New York in your second year.

Experimental art spaces

As a master student you can take part in exhibitions and projects of several of our partners. We collaborate with NP3 for instance, one of the experimental art spaces in Groningen for projects and exhibitions, with three totally different locations. We also work with Sign, a gallery that focuses on interdisciplinary, experimental and contemporary art, with the Visual Arts Centre in Groningen, Assen and Emmen and with the PeerGrouP in Donderen. Another partner is the Institute for the Unstable Media in Rotterdam.

Room for debate around art

During this master programme we encourage you to show your work and present your findings in a public debate. This allows you to enter into a dialogue with society concerning your artistic position; transforming the way people experience art, shaking them up, responding to their reactions and allowing others to influence your view of art. It is therefore not only the final result of your work that counts, but the process you go through to get there.

To show the world what you are doing, you are invited to join projects and take part in national and international projects and exhibitions. In the past our students have taken part in our own Energize Festival and the International Student Triennial Istanbul, for instance. We also participate in exhibitions and projects with Forum Images and other cultural institutions. During our Open Days Show you can show your work and get the possibility to work with a professional curator.

Artists doing strange things with technology. This sums up our MADtech Programme. To imagine, interpret and change human interaction with a transforming world you will use and artistically explore different technologies. Read more
Artists doing strange things with technology. This sums up our MADtech Programme. To imagine, interpret and change human interaction with a transforming world you will use and artistically explore different technologies. You will do so with a tinker mentality: play and experimentation are important aspects in your development and will carry a special emphasis on the research you do. This mentality, combined with a critical reflective attitude and conceptual skills, will lead to unexpected perspectives, resulting in multimedia artistic work.

The Frank Mohr Institute at the Minerva Art Academy offers two international Masters of Arts:
-MA Painting
-MA MADtech (Media, Art, Design & Technology)*, each consisting of a two-year curriculum.


Past, present and future

At MA MADtech we are constantly searching for the dialogue between different viewpoints from the past, present and future: between art and science, laboratory and applied research, stable and unstable media, old and new technology, local and global forms of society. We do so collectively, sharing our views and ideas, working in groups and learning from each other. At the same time, you will follow your own path, improving your knowledge and skills, learning to reflect critically on your own position, role and work as well as on the world around you.

Hybrid practice

Participants of our programme come from different practices, media, art and design, and share a fascination for technology. The combination of these areas gives you the opportunity to develop your artistic vision, working in a hybrid practice as a critical and engaged artist. As your art engages with the world, you will grow as an individual as well as in your artistic profession, reinforcing the power of your imagination and exploring your own connection to a transforming, technologically charged society.

Art & Research

MADtech is all about combining art and technology, creating hybrid forms of art, using traditional as well as brand new, unexpected means, content and media. Experimentation, tinkering and playing are vital methods for developing your work, backed up by thorough reflection. Artistic technology research is therefore a major part of the master programme. You will take part in collaborative artistic research projects, exploring the possibilities and limitations of transdisciplinary and transmedial situations in contemporary culture. This will help you to understand the links between aesthetics, technology, materiality, thinking and politics.

Enriching your work and ideas

You enter this programme with your own research topic. You will develop and refine these ideas during your first year, enriching your ideas through the knowledge and skills that you will gain, the experiments that you will carry out and the collaboration that you'll encounter. The second year is almost entirely devoted to your graduation work and artistic research, leading to your master thesis. During your time with us you will be part of a community where education, research and the artistic practice meet and reinforce each other.

Hybrid Arts Lab

For most of your work, research and lectures you will go to our building on the Praediniussingel. There you will find our Hybrid Arts Lab, also called HAL 24/7.
It includes an artistic technology research lab, seminar, project, lecture and exhibition rooms, media and photography studios, common workplaces, common kitchen and individual studios. You also have access to your studio 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At HAL we provide plenty of facilities, which you can use, technologically and otherwise as well as sufficient technical support. If you require more complex, technological facilities, you are welcome to make use of the Hanze facilities at the Institute of Engineering in Assen.

Expert meetings, artist's talks and exhibitions

You can attend interesting expert meetings, artist's talks and exhibitions, for instance by lectors of the Centre of Applied Research and Innovation Art & Society. During the 'Energize Festival' an international workshop called 'Recycling Electronics' took place here. Another interesting example is the expert meeting concerning photography research in cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural artistic practices, which involved current students and alumni. Every year, the course Research & Development/New Media Art Practices organises different collaborative projects and workshops, for example, with CREW Immersive Media and Blast Theory.

Centre of Applied Research and Innovation Art & Society

The Art & Society research centre of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen covers the practice based research of Minerva Art Academy. The Art & Society research centre consists of three research groups: Lifelong Learning in Music, Image in Context and Popular Culture, and Sustainability & Innovation.
