Production and Artistic Research


The aim of the Master's Degree in Artistic Production and Research is to train art practitioners and professionals in the most advanced fields of creative activity and enable students to acquire resources for research based on artistic production in relation to the current context.

The master's course offers students an opportunity to critically re-explore languages, media and disciplines in relation to artistic practice and research in such a way that they engage conceptually with the media they use and in the regeneration of lines of art discourse, in both personal and collaborative projects.
Faced with the continual transformation of artistic practices, we offer a master's degree program that emphasises critical thinking about art practices themselves and strengthens multidisciplinary, intermedia and media work in every area of artistic production in expansion today (two-dimensional, spatial, networked, audiovisual, and multimedia), exploring their social and conceptual contexts.
The program aims to provide participants with the intellectual tools and technological skills they will need to position themselves at the forefront of the creative sector in the production and post-production of intermedia or media art and to prepare them for research in the arts and based on artistic principles.
The content of this master's degree, which covers production and research in contemporary intermedia art and media arts, is unique among university master's degree syllabuses across Catalonia.

Learning objectives

The master's degree Production & Artistic Research aims to educate artistic producers in the most advanced creative fields and to provide participants with the resources they will need to conduct research based on artistic production.
The program offers participants the chance to critically re-explore languages, media and disciplines from the perspective of artistic practice and research, allowing them to reflect on conceptual considerations regarding the materials and media to be used and to take a role in regenerating lines of discourse related to art.
The goal of the program is to prepare graduates to join the workforce in a broad, multi-faceted and ever-changing market, providing them with the skills to respond to the reality of the contemporary artistic world through the development of products of creative excellence that are highly valued and easily assimilated in cultural, artistic and commercial contexts.
The program gives participants the capacity to develop innovative artistic processes, leading to the emergence of competitive products and research linked to new ways of thinking.
One of the strengths of this program is that it prepares participants to establish an intellectual discourse and to undertake advanced, continually evolving research tied to forms of artistic production.
