Painting (Master of Arts) | Master's degree | Art & Design | On Campus | 2 years | Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen | Netherlands
You are keen to gain more insight into the innovative potential of painting in a rapidly changing world. You are aware of the forces of physicality and materiality in art work, and you take a painterly approach to conducting your experimental research into the

By combining ideation and materiality, transforming your ideas into unexpected, meaningful and powerful images, you determine the meaning and significance of your work in contemporary society.
All over the world, painting has been reinvented as a result of political changes, the digitisation of society, demand for a postcolonial perspective and the current runaway art market.

This allows us to collectively explore charted and uncharted territories whilst sharing our views and ideas, working in groups and learning
from each other. At the same time, you will also embark on your own path, improving your knowledge and skills, and learning to reflect critically on your own position, role and work and on the world around you.

The mix of disciplines enables you to hone your artistic vision, working in a hybrid practice as a critical and engaged artist. As your art increasingly engages w
