Multidisciplinarity

De erg

As today terms like globalization or transversality are still debated and crucial issues, a teaching limited to a single orientation cannot respond efficiently to the constant mutation of artistic practices in contemporary society. Multidisciplinarity contributes to this current debate. The AP (Multidisciplinary Workshop) is compulsory, and its pedagogy is based on research and experimentation in relationto the students’ personal projects.

Research, experimentation and personal project

erg mainly focuses on the student’s project and the learning of methods designed to address multiple and mutating challenges. The students are encouraged to develop a personality of their own, to make a stand, to think off the beaten tracks. Experimentations are initiated as early as the first classes of Bac 1, and progressively shift toward personal researches until the artistic jury.

Orientations: the student chooses an orientation from among the 13 proposed, each associated with a pole. The chosen orientation defines the title of the academic degree sanctioning the successful completion of the cycle.

The pole is a meeting point, a point of convergence between several orientations. It is a place of synergy and transversality of knowledge and practices. There are 3 clusters: Art, Media and Narration.

Bachelors

Masters

Multidisciplinary Workshops

Upon its creation in 1972, erg has acknowledged the opening up and the permeability of contemporary artistic practices. As today terms like globalization or transversality are still debated and crucial issues, a teaching limited to a single orientation cannot respond efficiently to the constant mutation of artistic practices in contemporary society. Multidisciplinarity contributes to this current debate. The AP is compulsory, and its pedagogy is based on research and experimentation in relation to the students’ personal projects.

Multidisciplinary Workshops - BA

Multidisciplinary Workshops - MA

Internal Internship

From the second year of Bachelors, students must choose an Internal Internship - To be chosen from all the orientations (different from the first choice), or between Serigraphy, Woodcut, Linocut and Lithography and Model drawing classes.-

Theory and practice

Theoretical courses are an essential component of the curriculum, and are fully complementary to the artistic workshops. They allow a further exploration of methodologies, of personal or collective propositions, as well as spaces of mediation and forms, apprehended in their historical and critical perspectives.

PhD and Research

Placing research at the heart of its curriculum, erg proposes a third cycle degree within the “Art and art sciences” program at the École doctorale 20, in partnership with universities and Écoles Supérieures des Arts (esa) in Belgium’s French Community. Its curriculum aims at elaborating and pre-senting closely correlated artistic and theoretical works. The aim of the “Art and art sciences” program is to carry out a high-standard art project in parallel withhtheoretical research leading to a PhD thesis.
