SACI’s MFA in Communication Design program provides students with a unique opportunity to explore intensively and expand exponentially their personal practice through direct exposure to historical and contemporary 2D design approaches rooted in Europe and international in scope. Active participation and critical dialogue are fostered through frequent exchanges with SACI faculty members, visiting instructors, and guest lecturers. Students visit the studios of cutting-edge designers, view exhibitions by emerging and established designers, and travel to design fairs throughout Italy and elsewhere in Europe. Instruction aims at stimulating growth and expanding consciousness by encouraging daily contact with the art of Tuscany, whether through viewing the masterpieces exhibited in its world-renowned museums or through immersion in Florence’s rich and colorful city life—dual and intertwined sources of fascination and inspiration for contemporary artists and designers. Students are encouraged to situate their own practice within this broad cultural panorama in ways that will equip them with essential career tools. Students attend SACI for two successive academic years and earn 60 credits. During their first year, they put together a program that balances independent study with classroom study. In their second year, emphasis is placed upon career options for emerging communication designers. Students gain practical experience as SACI Teaching Assistants and undertake Design Internships in Tuscan design firms. Their studio space is in a fully renovated Renaissance palazzo in the heart of Florence—the city that, during the Renaissance, revolutionized art and design and has since served as an inspiration and catalyst for generations of artists and designers. They explore the rich heritage of art masterpieces in Tuscany in order to gain a deep understanding of the roots of Western visual conventions, and they analyze how contemporary design approaches are employed to communicate worldwide diverse information about Italy’s renowned art, design, and culture. Students in the program are expected to achieve: The ability to identify a problem and act as a visual author by (1) applying systems-based visual communications processes and research methodologies toward its solution and (2) approaching the totality of media and messages within a culture or organization through a single integrated design process rather than a series of discrete design efforts. Advanced professional competence, demonstrating depth of knowledge and achievement, as evinced through a well-developed and significant body of work. Demonstration of knowledge of theory and practices necessary for leadership positions in the profession. Advanced capabilities with technologies, as evinced through creation, dissemination, presentation, documentation, and preservation of work.

Art is an open set of ways of acting inventively in culture. Mixing the two together in a systematic way gives us computational art. This is a very open field, and one that is set to expand enormously in the coming years. It is where the most exciting developments in technology and in culture can already be found. This degree will place you in the middle of this fast-evolving context. What will I learn? This degree develops your arts practice through the expressive world of creative computation.

You will work with popular open source programming environments such as Processing, OpenFrameworks, P5.js and Arduino, and will learn how to program in languages such as Java, Javascript and C++. Since computational artworks don’t necessarily involve computers and screens, we also encourage students to produce works across a diverse range of media. Supported by studio technicians in state-of-the-art facilities, our students are producing works using tools such as 3D printers, laser cutters, robotics, wearable technologies, paint, sculpture and textiles. You will also study contextual modules on computational art and the socio-political effects of technology. Modules in the Centre for Cultural Studies provide students with the historical foundations, frameworks, critical skills and confidence to express their ideas effectively. You will have the opportunity to learn the cultural histories of technology, to reflect on computation in terms of its wider cultural effects, and to understand the way in which art provides rigorous ways of thinking. Through our masterclass series, we regularly invite world-class artists and curators to explain their work and engage in critical dialogue with the students. This allows you to develop a wider understanding of the contemporary art scene and how your work sits within the professional art world.

Master of Fine Arts in Critical and Pedagogical Studies

Lund University
Campus September 2017 Sweden Lund

Critical and Pedagogical Studies is an international postgraduate study programme leading to a Master of Fine Arts degree, working across borders between art theory, practice and pedagogy. [+]

Programme overview

Critical and Pedagogical Studies is an international postgraduate study programme leading to a Master of Fine Arts degree, working across borders between art theory, practice and pedagogy. It brings together postgraduate students with a BFA as well as many students who have previously completed a studio based MFA. The programme seeks to encourage applied thinking within the artistic field, investigating how we might both produce and discuss art, as well as how pedagogical strategies can be seen as artistic models in art practice and as teaching.

This is a pioneering programme that seeks to examine the ways in which critical theory and pedagogy inform artistic practice. Theory will be viewed as a practice, and practice will be theorised. Key issues and topics of discussion are pedagogical strategies such as artists teaching artists and the artist’s role in mediating to a public, combined with critical thinking on artistic production, with an openness to learn and experiment. The curriculum is in constant development and is well suited for artists working from a hybrid or expanded practice. The students and programme facilitators work together to form the programme structure through group dialogue and a critical examination of the content as it suits the participants' areas of interest, while responding to relevant topics of the day. This normally takes the form of intensive seminars and workshops led by visiting lecturers, the professors at Malmö Art Academy and the facilitators of Critical & Pedagogical Studies. However past participants have proposed their own self-organised course and have positively influenced the programme structure from within. Our focus is on how artists discuss, produce, educate and communicate, as we aim to encourage students to be critical of how educational structures operate, both within the programme itself and in relation to an educational practice....
