Academy of Fine Arts

We are an international academy with the focus on fine arts. We highlight students’ personal aspirations and one-to-one guidance in our teaching.

About us

We offer a highly esteemed programme within four subject areas: sculpture, painting, printmaking as well as time and space arts, which allows the student to specialise in moving image, site and situation-specific art or photography. We also offer the Praxis Master’s Programme in Exhibition Studies.

We are pioneers in the field of artistic research. Research and teaching are in close interaction with each other, and research is regarded as the underlying premise of contemporary art. Doctoral studies in fine arts provide students with skills needed in conducting independent artistic research.

Integral to fine arts are a curriculum that emphasises personal aspirations and freedom of choice, interaction between teachers and students and one-to-one guidance. We encourage students to find their own strengths, expression methods and interests within the field of fine arts.

Our teachers are distinguished visual artists and experts in various artistic fields. Artistic activities are integrated in the studies and offer students meaningful engagement with the art sector and the public.
