“When I dare to be powerful—to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”

— Audre Lorde (a self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet”)

The Fine Arts Department provides a truly diverse, inclusive, and imaginative context for emerging artists. Believing that the necessary space for artistic development is created through the grace of discussion, doubt, anarchism, conflict, freedom, and the ability to play and fail, we dispense with all façades. As a permanent Master Department at the Sandberg Instituut, Fine Arts is fully committed to strong visual presentations of artistic experimentation and research. We offer dedicated time, space, and social structures for artists to develop their own practices in relation to fellow students, the larger field of art, and the greater world, enabling artists to take on intentional positions in society.

The department seeks and nurtures new perspectives and practices and therefore welcomes diverse voices, minds, and bodies. Respect, reciprocity, care, and social integrity are values we promote.

The department actively considers new interpretations of art education, asking how art can best engage with the urgent social questions of our time addressing global dialogue. We emphasise building new ways of knowing and new bodies of knowledge that incorporate increased sensitivity and understanding of the historical origins and persistent legacies of existing knowledges, fostering greater critical awareness regarding appropriation and the European discourse.
