MA Art and Environment
The MA Art and Environment (MA A+E) uniquely combines post-studio art practice, interdisciplinary research, virtual teaching, Island Studies and community engagement. Taking contemporary art’s relationship with environments (ecological, spatial, political, economic) as its object of study, the MA A+E instructs students in artistic practices shaped by ‘archipelagic thinking’ (a decolonial spatial discourse that emphasises relationality and locality) and a pedagogy that is world-centred. A world-centred pedagogy is a pedagogy that is orientated towards ‘events’ in the world and the responses that they provoke in students and teachers.
Located in the West Cork Archipelago and at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, the MA A+E is supported by a team of artists, lecturers, and researchers in the Dublin School of Creative Arts (TU Dublin), by community workers and technicians in the Sherkin Island Development Society (SIDS) and by an international, interdisciplinary network of peers and colleagues.
