The Master Institute

The Master Institute

The Master Institute at AKV|St.Joost is a diverse and dynamic community of artists, curators, activists, researchers and writers. The institute is committed to creating autonomous thinkers with a critical view of the world and the profession, offering programmes that both deepen your practice and broaden your perspective.

The Master Institute is currently in a moment of transition as we work to bring together all of our students and researchers into one large multi-disciplinary learning environment in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. This new embodiment was initiated in 2016 and will allow the fluid nature of our programmes to deepen and grow. While new facilities for the Master Institute are being prepared, the programmes will be temporarily being housed in a former postal distribution centre in ‘s-Hertogenbosch — a unique, 24/7 location that stimulates collaboration and exchange.

The programmes at the Master Institute of AKV|St.Joost are fully accredited by the Dutch higher education authorities and comply with European standards as set by the Bologna Agreement.
