Transart Institute


Transart Institute is a space for experimentation and thinking in any form, sharing and connecting, and offering practice-based doctoral studies in a low-residency model. We champion self-directed, curious, flexible, and socially engaged creative researchers working independently and/or collectively.

Our border-free platform attracts an eclectic international body of students and advisors from equally diverse artistic and academic contexts and geographic locations as part of a global, trans-disciplinary research community, creating opportunities to expand, enhance and sustain individual and collective practices in the world, beyond the walls of the academy.

We support research on themes in all creative genres, including art and social technologies; curatorial practices; cultural engagement through food; docufiction and creative writing; ecology and environmental activism; expanded studio practices; experimental pedagogies; fashion and textiles; foreignness, otherness; home, nostalgia and the uncanny; international diaspora and exiled states; language and image; liminal states, interstices, and spacetime; media and design; memory, forgetting, trauma and the archive; movement, dance, choreography; new materialism, object-oriented ontology; olfactory arts; peace, mediation, and performative activism; post-nationalism, post-colonialism; publishing as an art practice; robotics; sound, music, field recordings, composing; space and temporary architecture; walking as an art practice.
