  • Overzicht

The Frank Mohr Institute at the Minerva Art Academy offers an international Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design, with two study programmes: Painting and Media, Art, Design & Technology (MADtech).

Both study programmes have their own distinct focus, either in the field of painting or in the technologically mediated relationship with society. Their common ground is that they reinforce your artistic profession in a rapidly changing society. In this technologically charged world you will leave your own mark; reflecting on your role as an artist, always asking critical questions and investigating a world in transition. Each study programme consists of a two-year curriculum with 120 EC's.

1st year

The first year of the study programme MADtech is mostly about exploring your chosen field. You will carry out your own experiments in our Hybrid Arts Lab, tinker with new technology during creative programming and explore research possibilities in art practices. This will allow you to improve your knowledge and skills, get to know the international art practice, create new concepts and to discover the possibilities of artistic research.
During the first year of the study programme Painting you will carry out your own research and studio work in our Hybrid Arts Lab. We will challenge you to explore how you can innovate and renew the art of painting, looking beyond the boundaries of a traditional approach and carrying out research into new, artistic possibilities. At the same time you will reflect critically on your own work and your artistic practice.


The core qualities of our study programme Painting are challenge and renewal, making, thinking and sharing, autominy and diversity, artistic system and artistic mentality, critical vision and theoretical reflection, artistic research.
To gain these qualities the course works with specific didactics which are constantly in development and keep the individual differences between artists in mind.

job perspective

The sphere of action of this hybrid artist is characterized by its varying manifestations and considerable freedom and openness, which in its turn reveals itself in embracing principles such as open source, open content and open distribution. His professional environment is constituted by expositions, festivals, the internet, public spaces, self-initiated projects, Do-It-Yourself conferences or interventions with social media.
