Experimental Publishing [XPUB] (fulltime)
Time: 11:00-12:00 & 16:00-17:00

We warmly welcome you to take part in the open day of XPUB, the Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design: Experimental Publishing of the Piet Zwart Institute, Willem de Kooning Academy, in Rotterdam.

Course director and tutors will give a short presentation about the master and afterwards there will be time for an informal Q&A with staff and students.

XPUB focuses on the acts of making things public and creating publics in the age of post-digital networks. XPUB’s interests in publishing are twofold:first, publishing as the inquiry and participation into the technological frameworks, political context and cultural processes through which things are made public; and second, how these are, or can be, used to create publics by expanding the means of discourse circulation beyond print media and its direct digital translation.

We seek students who are eager to experiment with media and formats, develop their own artistic and design toolkit, generate alternative modes of organisation, production, and collective action in the context of social practices, alternative social media and self-hosted network infrastructures.

Lens-Based Media [LB] (fulltime)
Time: 10.00 – 11.00 hrs & 15.00-16.00 hrs

We warmly welcome you to take part in the Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design: Lens-Based Media – online Open Day to find out more about our program!

Course director and tutors will give a presentation about the course and afterwards there is time for an elaborate, informal Q & A with staff and students.

We seek students who recognise that the future of lens-based images lies in the proliferation of new forms, working methods and delivery platforms: new forms of cinematic narrative, inter-active visual media, photographic and cinematic gallery installation, cross-media narrative, database film technologies, site-specific projection projects, and many more hybrid forms that loop together both digital and analogue techniques.

If you wish to develop a critical and creative practice within the expanding field of lens-based media, this Masters programme will be a stimulating environment for your research and studio practice.

The Master of Education in Arts is one of the six master programs of the Piet Zwart Institute. The relation between practice and theory is a central feature in this part-time program. Participants test, design and experiment with pedagogical models and tactics, as much as research them. The course focuses on contemporary developments in art/design education, including critical pedagogy, education philosophy, critical making, transdisciplinarity, museum education and participatory practices. This also involves engaging with pivotal topics that influence the discourse about education like intersectionality and sustainability. We welcome practitioners in the field of vocational, secondary and higher art/design education, museum education, as well as artists/designers working with socially engaged, experimental pedagogical practices.


Master Design (part-time)
19.00-20.30 hrs

Based on their own design question, students within the Master Design learn to do design and in-depth design research. They constantly reflect on what they discover and convey their work and expertise through storytelling. They combine and integrate this part-time master with their design practice, renew their own role and in this way that of creative professionals in society and organizations. They contribute to social, environmental and technological change. The combination of participatory work and authorship is fundamental.Join us in our online Open Day to find out more on our course, in a program where the course director, a tutor and two students share their insights and answer questions.
