Curriculum

Arts, Culture and Society

Which parties are active in the cultural sector? What are the interests of artist, the audience and distributors of arts and culture? And how can the arts scene hold its head up in the world? In this master, you will study how the international world of art and culture operates.

Entrepreneurial innovation. Creative, critical analysis. Engagement and exploration. Such are the indispensable attributes of professionals in the modern arts and culture sector. As both high art and popular culture are redefining their respective, and increasingly concomitant, role in society. Artists, producers and industries are repositioning and re-marketing themselves in a culture where leisure is an emergent commodity within an intensely competitive and changing market.

Digitisation currently allows audiences to access, criticise, alter and communicate an endless variety of cultural products. Globalisation blurs boundaries between nations, regions and cultural fields. Meanwhile, government policy is increasingly characterized by a laissez-faire mentality resulting in major subsidy cutbacks for the arts.
