Understand modern and contemporary media and audiovisual culture

Arts & Culture: Comparative Arts and Media Studies

Are you interested in the dynamic interrelations between media and arts?

Audiovisual media are essential to our society. Platforms, interfaces and networked media infrastructures have become ubiquitous and affect all aspects of private and public life. Digital media have profoundly reconfigured art and culture, and the aesthetics of politics.

These technological developments bring into question traditional borders between cinema, television, radio and the Internet. But they have also radically changed how we create, exhibit, view and interact with art and cultural objects.

In this specialisation, you will explore historical, theoretical and analytical perspectives on these phenomena while also examining exhibition and archival practices. 

Comparative Arts and Media Studies is one of the tracks of the master's programme in Arts & Culture. Find more information about the other tracks here.

The comparative approach to practices of spectatorship, processes of mediation and exhibition is unique in the Netherlands.
