In this specialisation you will study layout and design in a context of the public reception and the significance of objects and interiors.

Design and Decorative Art Studies is a specialisation of Leiden University's Master's in Arts and Culture. Leiden has a long tradition of research and teaching in this specialisation, from the Early Modern to the Postmodern period. Another option is to examine discussions on the effects of decoration, function and aesthetics of interiors and objects. This can, for instance, be from a particular period and community that is also interesting for insights into other times and cultures. You can also opt to make a more in-depth study of present-day engaged forms of design, such as ecodesign and biodesign. You can determine your own focal areas. You will examine the designer/producer relationship, production processes and market mechanisms, as well as the transition from sophisticated craftwork to (semi)industrialised mass production to modern technologies which challenge the notions of craft and design in various ways. You will learn to analyse written sources on decorative arts, material culture and design, use them with regard to relevant theoretical viewpoints and concepts, as well as frame them in different contexts.
