The Master Institute maintains a variety of relevant connections with partners in the professional field. Our collaborators include institutions, artist-run spaces and studios in the Netherlands and abroad.
We seek interaction with the world outside of the Institute for a number of reasons. Firstly, our partners help us maintain an ongoing dialogue about developments in society and how these changes influence the field.
Secondly, external collaboration provides our students with the opportunity to apply their practice within a professional context. Making your research public is an integral element of the curriculum; students regularly test the relevance and impact of their work through symposia, exhibitions and assignments executed in conjunction with our partners.
Finally, our relationship with our partners is a reciprocal one. The Master Institute believes that students have an important contribution to make to the contemporary landscape. By engaging with the outside professional world, students add their research and experimentation to the development of projects and programmes, thereby actively shaping the profession and its future.
