Sharpen your critical attitude towards today’s developments in visual arts, media & architecture. Study their changing role in high, late, and post-modernity from a theoretical and historical perspective.
Welcome to the website of the Research Master in Visual Arts, Media & Architecture. The VAMA research master is a two-year programme taught at VU University Amsterdam that is directed at talented students who are highly motivated to acquire the requisite academic skills in the field of art history, architecture history, visual culture and media studies. It studies current developments in the respective fields from both theoretical and historical perspectives and examines the complex relationships between visual arts, architecture and media that have resulted from such developments.
This website offers an introduction to and practical information on the programme aimed at prospective students and allows them to get acquainted with the goings on of VAMA students and staff. For current students, the website functions as a platform on which to publish their work and individual projects, as well as a place to keep track of activities, deadlines and opportunities. Even former students have something to learn here. Find out what your former classmates are up to and keep us updated on your own endeavours!
