COOP Academy

(To see how the 7 COOP study groups are embedded in our MA study trajectory you are advised to consult our SYLLABUS 2017-2018)

The COOP Academy is at the heart of the DAI's curriculum and asks for active participation in & productive contributions to, curated, collaborative, un-disciplined, art research trajectories. It brings makers, researchers, writers, activists and curators together around well-defined and relevant questions and topics.

In the academic year 2017-2018 students will be able to join one out of seven COOP ACADEMY study groups. Each study group is guided by a tutorial team which consists of a practising artist, next to a curator and a scholar/researcher. 

The study groups gather each DAI Week + 5 days more ( the so-called "extension") to share research and to develop a group work. This group work can come into being as an entirely collaborative endeavour, but it may also consist of individual works, brought together under the umbrella of the overriding title of the study group.
