Theoretical training aims at enabling students to build a critical and personal discourse to support, strengthen and foster their artistic practice. Provided in the form of lectures, workshops and conferences, this education serves to explore the history of art, photography, design and film, to understand contemporary stakes in these disciplines, to learn about major figures and to assemble a collection of reference works.
Provided by first-rate historians, critics and theoreticians, these courses are bridges across disciplines but also provide specific training to support studio practice.
At Bachelor and Master level, this training leads to a diploma thesis covering the experimentation and exploration phase. Students develop personal research which they render in a freely chosen format, highly encouraged to display inventiveness and originality. The best theses are published or lead to wider research projects.
