Master of Arts in Contemporary Arts Practice
The Master of Arts in Contemporary Arts Practice (MA CAP) is a multidisciplinary program for artists from the visual arts, the performance art, music and media art and literature. The focus is on the student’s approach and choice of emphases. We support individual as well as collaborative projects and encourage exchanges among students and teaching staff across different fields of art.
The comprehensive studies program aims at fostering an independent artistic outlook within a framework of collective working interrelationships. It sharpens individual artistic practices through direct engagement with other artistic strategies. A knowledge of current discourses in other art forms causes the own view to change.
We offer four options for specialisation:
— Fine Arts
— Music and Media Art
— Literary Writing
— Performance Art read more

We make appeal to those interested in creating durational actions to join and work with us. Bucharest has some post-industrial spaces that we would love to explore with you. Also, we emphasize our desire to develop works in the public space.
