"Students of Base for Art, Experiment & Research are the creators of our new society."
During the Fine Art (BEAR), you will learn about the interaction between creating and thinking, with diversity as the starting point. The power of art lies in an unconditional belief in imagination, experimentation and the coexistence of diverging perspectives.
'Art changes, we change'
Contemporary art today is as complex and diverse as the world in which we live. Art is distinctive, as it does not conform to prevailing models, but questions and examines these models; like everything else, art subjectifies. Simultaneously, art connects with the world – it is part of it, offers insights into it and intervenes in it.
We take diversity as a starting point in our programme, by coupling small groups of students with famous artists using widely diverse approaches. We emphasise the exchange between thought and creation and encourage our students to conduct research and communicate meaning in their work. Together, we – both the students and the lecturers – form a dynamic, internationally oriented community where each person learns from the others.
