The ArtScience Interfaculty is an interdisciplinary bachelor and master programme that fosters curiosity driven research as approach for the making of art. The programme considers art and science as continuum and promotes the development of new art forms and artistic languages. The ArtScience Interfaculty is embedded in both the Royal Conservatoire and The Royal Academy for Fine Arts in The Hague, The Netherlands.
While situated between the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, the ArtScience interfaculty collaborates closely with Leiden University’s Academy for Creative and Performing Arts and Media Technology MSc programme. ArtScience has an interdisciplinary focus that intersects the existing fields of music, visual arts, media art, humanities and the natural sciences. The staff originates from a variety of artistic cultures and disciplines and is unique in its scope.
The study stimulates students to question and reflect upon actual developments around us. This includes developments within the arts and sciences and also technological, social and political developments. We are interested in new forms of art, new presentation methods and presentation places. By doing this we challenge students to question what future forms of art could be like.
