MA Course Guide
Study in NL
Not to be compared to any studio-based program and certainly not to the notorious edu-factories in the capitals of capitalism, the DAI offers a small scale program, an MA Art Praxis with a highly experimental and agile profile; a quite funky space for research, a 'temporary art commune', that in many ways exceeds the limits of conventional art education.
At DAI we aim to promote new perspectives on collaboration and exchange, production and distribution, ethics and aesthetics while bringing together practitioners from all over the world
DAI and its more or less longstanding institutional partners Casco (Utrecht), If I Can't Dance ( Amsterdam), Open! (on line), the Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven) and The Showroom (London) constitute an 'interface' between academy and so-called professional field.
SPACESHIP DAI: students, tutors and invited guests take part in a monthly, one week-long residential program that last from early morning until late at night
Roaming Academy: reinforcing its structure of monthly meetings in Arnhem, we offer an itinerant program that combines courses in the Netherlands with travel abroad.
Students meet with faculty and guests through a variety of formats: individual tutorials, seminars and discussions, workshops, lectures and performances, collaborations in projects and at many informal moments during DAI-weeks.
Students are expected to continue developing their own independent research while simultaneously engaging with the DAI's discursive input, curatorial projects and support structure.
