Transart Institute offers an international low-residency MFA program for working artists in a highly individualized format. The program consists of three intensive summer residencies with lectures, workshops, critiques, seminars, performances and exhibitions in Europe as well as two shorter, optional winter residencies in New York. In the four semesters between residencies, students create their own course of study realizing individual art and research projects with the support of faculty and self-chosen artist mentors wherever they work and live. The program is geared towards the development of sustainable artistic praxis rather than training in certain media or genres, challenging students to think conceptually and work creatively in new ways. Current students work with animation, curating, digital media, film, gaming, graphic design, installation, painting, performance, photography, robotics, sculpture, sound, text, video, virtual reality.
