About Postgraduate department of the Rietveld Academie Amsterdam, masters of art and design.
Sandberg Instituut cover
Description As the postgraduate department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam, the Sandberg Instituut offers Master’s programmes in Fine Arts (MFA), Interior Architecture (MIA), Applied Art (MAA) and Design (MDes). The institute was established in 1990 by former Rietveld director Simon den Hartog, and developed into a fully recognised educational institution with several Master’s programmes by its first director, Jos Houweling.

Jurgen Bey, director since 2010, looked for a way to align the institute with the dynamic of contemporary society. He introduced temporary, 2-year programmes developed around the urgent issues of our time such as vacancy, art and healthcare, political spatial design. Whereas the temporary programmes reflect on situations with a sense of urgency, the main departments aim to deepen the practices of artists, designers and critics. Sandberg Instituut’s permanent programmes include Fine Arts, Studio for Immediate Spaces, Design, The Dirty Art Department and the new research Master’s in Critical Studies.
