This course focuses on the political development goals of sustainable peace, good governance and stable democracy. Drawing on different theoretical approaches and various empirical examples throughout the degree programme, it asks students to critically assess alternative suggestions for establishing peace and inclusive, durable democracies in developing countries.

Key topics include inter alia the possible definitions, arguable causes and consequences of democracy; the political, social and economic effects of different political institutions; and the typically contested origins of violent intrastate conflicts as well as the suggestions that have been made to help overcome them.

The course adopts a unique interdisciplinary approach which is grounded in the acknowledgment that it is extremely difficult to meet international development targets in states experiencing endemic political instability, violent civil conflict, gross human rights abuses and acute crises of governance.

The contemporary art scene is evolving as artists respond to new disciplines and techniques and challenge the boundaries of their practice. Read more
The contemporary art scene is evolving as artists respond to new disciplines and techniques and challenge the boundaries of their practice. The place of art in society is changing as increasingly varied audiences interact with creativity in new ways. MA Curation at NUA is a pioneering course - the first to respond to this changing sector and to equip professionals with the broad skills and contextual understanding needed by the 21st century curator.

Focused above all on the public exhibition of contemporary art, MA Curation at NUA also recognises curation in its most enquiring sense as a way of bringing together and relating ideas, images, objects and texts for public exhibition. This intellectually stimulating course enables students to be creative and open to new ways of working as they begin to define your own specialism. Through practice and research, students are invited to experiment with curation for traditional and innovative public exhibition spheres, including;
• museums, galleries and public spaces
• digital arts, moving image and performance
• print, digital media and the internet

Through ‘hands-on’ practice throughout the course, students on MA Curation will develop key sector skills in the management of collaborative projects; the ability to lead and work within a team and an understanding of the importance and use of networks. The course will encourage students to question the ethical responsibilities of the curator and reflect on controversy within the arts.
MA Curation at NUA is distinguished by an emphasis on practical curatorial experience. Curation is understood in its broadest and most forward-thinking sense as a process of bringing together objects, still and moving image and/or texts into a coherent whole. The course appeals to a range of applicants, including graduates in Fine Art and Art History and those from non-art backgrounds with an interest in curatorial practices.

NUA has a strong reputation for high quality curatorial practice, having staged the prestigious Eastinternational between 1991-2009. The Gallery at NUA provides a showcase for exhibitions of international contemporary art and design and plays a central role in the MA Curation programme. Recently the Gallery at NUA has showcased work by artists including: Grayson Perry, Gilbert and George, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Damien Hirst, Jeremy Deller and Rachel Whiteread. MA Curation students have the opportunity to curate in the Gallery and encouraged and supported to engage in local and national opportunities.

The University has productive links with the Tate and Hayward Gallery as well as with galleries in the region. Tutors and industry guests encourage professional understanding as you develop your appreciation of location and audience and the communication of ideas, meaning and information. You will become accustomed to liaising between artists, dealers, galleries and agents as you progress on your curatorial career.

Taught by leading, established practitioners in the field and with a strong emphasis on industry lectures, workshops, visits and collaborations, the MA focuses heavily on the core professional skills needed to stand out in the competitive field of curation. Students are expected to develop a thorough understanding of current debates in contemporary art, design and media practice. Through expert tuition and regular interaction with students on other postgraduate courses at NUA, students will hone their research and critical interpretation skills.

Unit Tutor, Dr Krzysztof Fijalkowski contributes to the MA Curation and Postgraduate Research programmes at NUA. He is active as a researcher, writer, translator, curator and artist, with particular interests in the history and theory of Dada and Surrealism. Krzysztof also works on the BA Fine Art course, combining teaching in the studio and responsibility for many of the course’s Contextual Studies elements, with a special interest in the crossovers between writing, theory and practice.

Professor of Curation and Art History, Lynda Morris supervises Phd Research students and is the Senior Tutor on the MA Curation course. Professor Morris is the Curator of EASTinternational - the international open submission exhibition - which has been realised in collaboration with a series of eminent invited selectors since 1991. Her activities as a curator and a writer have been concerned with issues of perception, conceptual art, and resistance in art and politics. She was responsible for the first UK exhibitions of several now well-recognised artists including Agnes Martin (1974), Bernd & Hilla Becher (1974-75) and Gerhard Richter (1977). Professor Morris is a Principal Investigator for the major AHRC funded research project 'Picasso; Peace and Freedom' with Tate Liverpool, the Albertina (Vienna) and the Louisiana (Copenhagen). Professor Morris is currently working on a book and recently curated the exhibition As It Was As It Is Now for the Herbert Foundation Ghent 2014 and The Life Room and the City: John Wonnacott & John Lessore at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery.

MA Curation is relevant to applicants looking to achieve a high level of professional understanding and ability and applications are welcome from outstanding students from diverse disciplines including Fine Art, Design, Film and Moving Image, Art/Design History and those interested in communicating ideas across the arts and sciences to new and existing audiences.

Scholarship and funding information is available.
