About Transart Institute (Ti)
Transart Institute (Ti) is small, responsive and agile. We are an independent, utopian art school without geographic location offering accredited creative practice graduate studies. Our students and faculty-from all over the planet-meet each year for a few weeks in the summer in Berlin and winter in New York as we continue to work wherever we live supported by advisors, student-run critique groups and the Ti community.
Just as we come from across national, cultural, material and conceptual boundaries our student body includes recent graduates, mid-career artists, writers, teachers and thinkers who come to Transart Institute to expand their points of view and invigorate their practice by participating in intensive immersive residencies including workshops and seminars, presentation and critique, peer dialogue and debate and becoming part of an international artistic research community.
Transart grew out of a desire to go beyond established institutional education where pre-formed and pre-formatted knowledge is passed on to all students in the same way. Transart works the other way around: a plethora of models and diverse input in a multi-perspective environment form a truly student-driven program. The Institute is also a platform for faculty to expand their teaching praxis by making space for creativity and experimentation. Beyond its educational objectives, Transart, which is entirely run by artists, is engaged in building an international community in support of students, alumni, faculty and their artistic and academic practices.
