This MA proposes a practical approach to research in which a close collaboration is fostered between theory and praxis in the field of visual arts and performing arts. By means of the student’s participation on a variety of formats such as laboratories, workshops and seminars, the student’s creative praxis is integrated with relevant theoretical discourses, in order to reach a productive cooperation among conceptual methods, critical instruments and creative research practices. In this context the student’s autonomous work is extremely relevant and is developed throughout the programme in a continuous dialogue with mentors, supervisors, teaching staff, invited artists and fellow students. It takes the form of an immersion in a process of interdisciplinary dialogue in which students have the opportunity of collectivelly reflecting on their own work, as well as on research instruments and methodologies.
In this MA, performing arts are enhanced and enriched with visual artistic practices. In order to allow the emergence of this interdisciplinarity, the programme is structured around two lines of work: audiovisual work and relational practices. Addressing creative praxis in this crossdisciplinary way allows students to gain a comprehensive understanding of their field of research.
