Hubert van Ben Gijsemans

Master degree in Visual Arts on Sint-Lukas campus, Brussels

In the Graphic Design master on the Sint-Lukas campus in Brussels you can choose between a specialisation in Media & Information Design or Graphic Storytelling.

As a master student, you will choose your own project and formulate your own relevant research questions. You will demonstrate that you are able to work critically and innovatively within your chosen discipline or able to initiate multidisciplinary projects. You will work in a productive and stimulating environment in which confrontation and communication with other students and tutors are the driving force for deepening your own work.

About the master training

The open, questioning attitude you take as a designer/author towards available media ensures that the switch between techniques and disciplines becomes a matter of course. In other words: the autonomous designer/author sometimes makes video, sometimes conceptual work, then a book or a digital project.

In addition, you will write a thesis in which you reflect on your practice, methodology and the choices you make. Alongside design, you will focus on an ongoing critical analysis of your work process through academic writing and presentations.

During the Critical Practices and interdisciplinary Critical Study you will learn research methodologies and collect, analyse and synthesise relevant information to answer your research questions. This will bring you insight into the manner in which designers operate in different geographical, historical and cultural contexts and will give you the necessary intellectual capacity to grow into the next generation of leading designers, authors and artists.
