Application deadline: February 1, 2014
The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art calls for applications for the international Masters program starting in fall 2014. This program will be of particular interest to international students who want to connect with any of the academy’s focus areas investigating the intersections of art, architecture, and technology. The application deadline is February 1, 2014.
The International MFA program encourages graduate students to explore critical and innovative practices in both individual artistic work and group projects. Students are offered the possibility to work within a wide range of media and theoretical fields. There is a particular focus on research-based artistic practice. In addition to tutorials, lectures,workshops, and field trips, students participate in collaborative projects such as “Art & Common Space.” It involves students from both the Architecture and Fine Art departments working together towards a re-imagining of public space from art, architecture, and other creative perspectives.
The international MFA program allows artists to spend two years of intense investigation developing a project and an artistic portfolio in a pre-professional environment. Projects evolve through stages of conceptual and material development towards formal and informalpresentation and critical constructive debate. The two-year study program culminates in a thesis project that is presented in an exhibition, which is carried out in close collaboration with local art institutions.
The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) is an institute of the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). It operates both independently and within the University fields of study. This unique environment allows the MFA students to expand the depth and complexity of their studio practice and to experiment with new approaches across different disciplines and technologies.
The Academy of Fine Art is situated outside of the NTNU campus in a former factory building. It is well connected to a small but vibrant local art scene with artist-run galleries, exhibition halls, and museums.
The academy offers each MFA student a large individual studio. International students who are not eligible for a fellowship or scholarship program are welcome at NTNU, provided they have proof of sufficient funding to pay their living expenses. There is no tuition fee.
