The Institute of Fine Arts and Media Arts
comprises twelve departments, each with a different artistic focus. All its departments are oriented to relevant movements
in the fine arts and to digital and trans-media art forms. Teaching and art practice within the institute open up and dynamize
the artistic disciplines of today, furnish an artistic-theoretical approach to various visualization cultures in art and science,
and offer an examination of relevant theoretical and historical principles.
The institute’s foremost aim is to
provide its students with a profound education in an atmosphere permeated by intensive debate and communication. Instruction
in the departments takes into account the wide spectrum of advanced artistic concepts and methods available, and places equal
stress on the synergies produced by a transdisciplinary approach and essential differentiations within each artistic discipline.
The heightened emphasis on exchange and collaboration with universities and cultural institutions abroad generates opportunities
for international mobility, promotes competent participation in international discourse and creates important preconditions
for defining a position in the art world.
