Research at the Amsterdam University of the Arts

Art-making requires curiosity and a mind that questions the nature of reality: art offers a commentary, welcome or not, which may or may not be of a personal nature. In supporting this inquiring approach, research is a significant part of the education the AHK provides, and is not confined to the Master’s courses. The latest practice-led research also constantly nurtures and shapes the education programmes.
