The Fine Arts department University College PXL-MAD Hasselt offers ‘Art Sense(s) Lab’: an artistic, academic English Master programme in Visual Arts (one year – 60 ECTS). The course revolves around experimentation and research, for which thinking and doing are in constant interaction. The increase of interest in the use of the senses smell, taste and touch within the world of fine arts offers an inspiring starting point which is constantly questioned in order to develop a critical attitude towards how senses may add context to artistic work or be the context of the artwork.

The master programme consists of two major components: Artistic Studio Practice and the Master Seminar Series Art Sense(s) Lab.

Master students are free to work around one or more senses. Depending on their interest they can focus on smell, taste or touch. But also crossovers between these senses or in combination with seeing and/or hearing are possible.
There can also be cross-overs or combinations in the way of expressing, translating the use of senses with various art forms like painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass works, printmaking, time-based art, new media and video-installations.
The international well-known olfactory artist tutor of the English Master Art Sense(s) Lab is Peter de Cupere.  He works with a team of professional artists and academics to support the students in their development.
