[Nettime-nl] TRANSMEDIA 2006 - 2007: Call For Apllications


Hogeschool Sint-Lukas Brussels
Brussels, Belgium

The Transmedia postgraduate program in arts, media & design is a two-year,
full-time course and leads to a master¹s diploma in Transmedia studies.

OCTOBER 1 2006
(The number of new admissions for the 2006-2007 academic year is limited to

Transmedia offers you a stimulating environment where your work comes first:
a continuous and independent art practice that seeks for a dialogue with
similar practices from other disciplines. You are invited/expected to engage
in an ongoing conversation on your work (process) through tutorials, group
discussions, seminars, workshops and the interchange of ideas and skills
with fellow students. The aim of our program is to encourage you in
producing art-work that involves the computer either as a working tool
(editing, designing, programming) or as a presentation model (multimedia
installation, web site, CD-ROM). Still, we emphasize the user's creativity
rather than the machine. You are challenged to engage computer-mediated
interactivity as broadly as possible, that is, using different and
alternative forms of narration, installation and interface to foster
innovative forms of communication and expression through transmedia
art-work. We believe that people of different backgrounds and experiences
are central to this collaborative, multi-disciplinary practice. Therefore,
we welcome candidates from a variety of backgrounds: from graphic design,
visual arts, architecture, and performance to photography, film, video,
installation, and new media, but also from the humanities, sciences, music
composition, dance, and industrial design.

The Transmedia program focuses on research and its integrated mix of art
practice and critical thought. This enables you to emphasize not only
technical knowledge, but also the conceptual understanding and insights you
will need to produce thoughtful, engaging, and professional artwork. You
learn from internationally recognized teachers and visiting artists who are
actively shaping the direction of thinking and practice in the rapidly
evolving transmedia field through their own work.
