Post-master courses at the Royal Institute of Art

Post-master courses in Fine Art and Architecture at the Royal Institute of Art are directed at emerging and established practitioners to continue studies on an advanced level. The courses are experimental, risk-taking, peer-learning, and research-based in nature. They are particularly suitable to applicants interested in engaging with urgent contemporary spatial, artistic, and societal issues. 

Architectural Conservation: Creating a future that shapes us

Building a society with reduced environmental footprint is one of today’s most urgent tasks, while the construction sector remains a major polluter. The course investigates how knowledge, tools and analytical methods from architectural conservation can lead to new approaches shaping a more sustainable society.


What we call “public space” is increasingly surveilled, politicized, and privatized. Yet public spaces have throughout history served as important sites in shaping how, when, and where people relate to each other. The course focuses on artistic values and practice-based thinking/making, exploring the significant role art can have within the realm of public space.

Collective Practices Research Course

Collective Practices Research Course is a new trans-disciplinary Post-Master course based at the Royal Institute of Arts, Stockholm. The course develops an extensive understanding of collective practices in the arts and across other domains and traditions, proposing an experimental method for mutual learning, based on the elaboration of a repertoire of collective practices.

Decolonizing Architecture: modernism and demodernization

The increasing presence of populations with a migratory background have brought the struggle of decolonization, once primarily located outside of Europe, within its borders. The course uses the term decolonization as a critical framework for an architectural and artistic research practice engaged in social and political struggles.

Materialities: Coordinates – Translating Form (Continuation course)

The course is a one-year extension of the current academic year’s Materialities postgraduate course. Predominantly practice-based, it deepens and explores the relationship between materiality and immateriality through both digital and analogues techniques dedicate to shaping dimensionality. 

Decolonizing architecture: Continuation course

Decolonization is the critical position and conceptual frame for an architectural practice engaged in social and political struggles. This continuation of last year’s post-master course reflects on knowledge related to architecture and other spatial sciences that arise from places that are interpreted as physical rooms, as well as groups, experiences and bodies.
