The Piet Zwart Institute (PZI) houses the international Master programmes of the Willem de Kooning Academy at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. Named after the pioneering Dutch designer Piet Zwart, who worked experimentally across media and contexts, the PZI offers a combination of in-depth specialisation and interdisciplinary exchange within an intimate learning environment. The PZI Master programs are dedicated to promoting study and research in art, design, and art education, and share an interest in the complex social, cultural and political contexts of their respective fields.
During the period July 11-14 all the Master programs will be exhibiting a wide variety of work from students of Education in Arts, Experimental Publishing, Fine Art, Interior Architecture: Research + Design, and Lens-based Media.
