The Masters students in the Department of Art Education work in a space in-between. In their training they have access to scientific as well as artistic interpretative tools, with the aid of which they examine various learning sites. Rooms for learning can be so much more than a classroom. The concept of knowledge is realised in various aesthetic learning processes; in young people’s encounters with interactive art, in their own creation of films, in the relational space between language, art and memory.

The Department of Art Education operates in the intersection between scientific and artistic theories and practices. The students’ projects become cross-fertilizations between current research issues and creative processes in the fields of visual culture, art, media and design.

The Masters course in Visual Art Education create knowledge through study, whereby the issue of research is examined using scientific and artistic work. The emphasis is on issues in the areas of visual culture, identity and learning. The thesis entails what we call a ‘double perspective’, i.e. combining theory and method in scientific practice with theory and method in artistic practice at an academic level, without positioning writing or other forms of knowledge as oppositions.
