Master of Science in Art Culture and Technology

The Master of Science in Art, Culture and Technology is a studio program within the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology. Students challenge traditional genres and push the limits imposed by gallery and museum contexts. Exploring experimental media and expanded definitions of site is encouraged.

Study is organized and directed by a select group of internationally recognized artists. Students learn through project critiques and seminars, complemented by readings and discussion in contemporary theory and criticism.

Central to the curriculum is the potential for links with programs in architecture, urbanism, technology and media studies. Related areas of research include: the dialogue between art and architecture; critical approaches to public art; demarcations between public and private space; anti-monuments and new instruments of collective memory; prosthesis and extended body; nomadic design tactics; new interfaces between visual art and landscape; and performance and sound works.
