WE STILL WELCOME APPLICATIONS FOR the MA department of DESIGN CURATING AND WRITING.* Because of the young age of the department we would like to give as many applicants the opportunity to join the course. 
 

The Design Curating and Writing programme provides the critical skills necessary to reflect on and interpret the numerous roles design plays today, while challenging conventional perceptions of what design is. It draws on theory and direct observation, using research, reporting, and analysis to develop a personal point of view articulated in the form of writing and exhibition-making.

One of the advantages of being embedded in a design school is that aspiring writers and curators are in an environment where design is constantly being generated. This proximity to the thought processes and working methods of designers offers a deeper understanding of how design works. It is also an opportunity to develop collaborations and alliances with designers that may be formative to their future practices.

The course is a crossroads for international writers, curators, editors, and designers, who share their insights and experience. Students also benefit from affiliations with the Design Museum in London and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, with the potential to gain an insider’s view of live projects.
