Piet Zwart Institute

The Piet Zwart Institute houses the international Master programmes of the Willem de Kooning Academy at Hogeschool Rotterdam. Since 1999 it has been dedicated to promoting study and research in the fields of art, design and art education.

Master Media Design & Communication

The Piet Zwart Institute Master Media Design & Communication is a research orientated master programme, with a strong emphasis on the connection between practice and theory. The course focused on practice-led research through project-based work will equip you to create a distinctive voice as an artist/designer in the contemporary media landscape.

The course is a two-year, full-time, international, English-language study programme. It comprises six study trimesters. The first three include thematic seminars, technical sessions and a reading, writing and research methodologies seminar to support your developing research path. The last three are focused on your individual graduation project with tailored tutorial support.

This academic year we are establishing two new specialist study paths to allow students to intensively engage with a particular aspect of the contemporary media landscape: lens-based and experimental publishing.
