Het Instituut – School
a new postgraduate program, offers an interdisciplinary, practice-based research program that bridges the worlds of academia and practice and is located in the heart of Amsterdam. The 6 months program takes urban problems in the spatial and social realms as its point of departure. Basic competences of the program are: a critical approach, social engagement and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Reality-based research
Together with Het Instituut-School, participants explore a case study of their choosing and develop their knowledge and skills in relation to real spatial and social questions. In the first half of the programme they conduct research and develop a case study. In the second phase they work towards the presentation of their plan/design/project. In each case, they determine how to translate the value of the autonomy of art and design into a practical, feasible proposal.

“Don’t imagine there’s room for everyone in the museum. Perhaps for a few who are really interested in it. But there is room for everyone in other places. You can use art in all sorts of ways. Society needs you”

– Michelangelo Pistoletto
