The Frank Mohr Institute at the Minerva Art Academy offers two international Masters of Fine Arts: MFA Painting and MFA Media, Art, Design & Technology (MADtech), each consisting of a two-year curriculum.
Both programmes have their own distinct focus, either in the field of painting or in the technologically mediated relationship with society. Their common ground is that they reinforce your artistic profession in a rapidly changing society. In this technologically charged world you will leave your own mark; reflecting on your role as an artist, always asking critical questions and investigating a world in transition.

The programmes are aimed at a practical as well as a theoretical development and broadening of the own position as a student within the field of study.
Supervised and encouraged by expert and authoritative core lecturers, semester lecturers and guest lecturers, students work independently and formulate their own goals and ambitions.

The FMI Masters are named after Mr A. Frank Mohr (1931-1998), cultural advisor to the city and province of Groningen and chairman of the advisory boards of the School of Fine Arts, Design & Pop Culture MINERVA and the Prince Claus Conservatoire. He was a fervent advocate of independence and innovation in art education in the North Netherlands.

Master of Fine Arts - Painting
The Master of Fine Arts Painting educates visual artists who create individual work and perform autonomous research with a view to gaining insight into new prospects for painting in a digital era on the basis of a reflective and critical attitude.

Master of Fine Arts - Media, Art, Design & Technology (MADtech)
Artists doing strange things with technology. This sums up our MADtech Programme. To imagine, interpret and change human interaction with a transforming world you will use and artistically explore different technologies. You will do so with a tinker mentality: play and experimentation are important aspects in your development and will carry a special emphasis on the research you do. This mentality, combined with a critical reflective attitude and conceptual skills, will lead to unexpected perspectives, resulting in multimedia artistic work.

The two international Masters of Fine Arts: Painting and MADtech (Media, Art, Design & Technology) are provided by FMI Masters in conjunction with the Centre of Applied Research and Innovation Art & Society and Groningen University (RUG).

Cooperative programme
The FMI Masters are part of a cooperative programme involving:
• Hunter College, City University of New York,
• the Master of Fine Arts programme at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Design in Philadelphia and
• the National College of Art and Design in Dublin.
We also work with a variety of educational institutes, cultural bodies and festival and event organisers, in the Netherlands and abroad, on activities such as exhibitions, presentations, shows, projects and workshops. As part of the programme there is a study trip to New York or another destination, which helps students to broaden their knowledge, experience and vision.

You wish to gain more insight into the innovative quality of painting in a rapidly changing world. Aware of the force of physicality and materiality of art works, you take a painterly approach as you conduct your experimental research into the functioning of perception psychology, cognition and imagination. A painting shows you the imagination of ideas as well as how the material is edited and used. Taking a painterly and critical approach means that you create new relationships and associations through the use of materiality. In this way, you determine the meaning and significance of your work in today's society by combining ideation and materiality; transforming your ideas in unexpected, meaningful and powerful images.
