Painters and film/video makers are sought by Transart Institute for its student advisor pool. Transart Institute offers an international low-residency MFA for working artists in a highly individualized format. The program consists of three intensive summer residencies with lectures, workshops, critiques, seminars, performances and exhibitions in Berlin and two winter residencies in New York. In the four semesters between residencies, students create their own course of study realizing individual art and research projects with the support of faculty and self-chosen artist mentors wherever they work and live. Students choose advisors to accompany them on their year long thesis projects in the summer.
Advisors are sponsored by the Institute to work with students on their art and/or curatorial projects off-site during semesters between residencies. Responsibilities include a minimum of two meetings per semester for critiques and advisement on the student’s media independent study projects plus a mid-project and final written evaluation. Students and advisors make schedule arrangements between themselves.

The Transart Experience
TRANSART STUDENTS are emerging and mid-career artists and educators. Transart residencies are a meeting place for cultural exchange. Transart students and alumni will converge for the summer residency from areas as diverse as Thailand, Egypt, Italy, Pakistan, Iceland, Croatia, Ethiopia, Canada, Costa Rica, the UK and the US.
For many students the time at Transart is a transformational experience. Performer and painter Nicole Stager wrote: “This program has changed my life in profound ways. My art practice is more informed, better articulated, more open, more thoughtful, more grounded in theory.” New York based artist Virgil Wong found “The community I’ve become a part of through Transart is already much more immersive than what I’ve developed in ten years of living and working as an artist in New York City”. Photographer and performer Angelika Rinnhofer found that “to work independently can pose a challenge but it also offers freedom and flexibility. Since a large number of students are accomplished artists and earn a living, Transart’s concept is ideal to work toward a degree and to expand one’s artistic career in addition to having a job.”
