Long company description

University / Studies

The Karlsruhe University of Art and Design (HfG) was opened on the 15th of April 1992. Between 1989 and 1992, Prof. Dr. Heinrich Klotz established the University and the Center for Art and Media (ZKM). This unique connection between academic, research and exhibiting institution corresponds to the new artistic and educational assignment, to apply traditional arts on media technologies and electronic manufacturing processes.

Prof. Dr. Peter Sloterdijk took over the rector’s post at the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design in 2001: “The program at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design does not refer to definite tendencies and directions in Practice and in Theory of Arts or even the style concept. The democratic structure of society and also modern communication systems make such predefinitions and Dogmas impossible. The basis of learning and teaching at the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design is pluralistic open-mindedness.”

On January 28th the German Council of Science and Humanities attested the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design an excellent education concept during a comprehensive university evaluation. In its valuation a special emphasis was layed on the capacity for innovation, flexibility and social competence of the students, associates and teachers and praised the extraordinary diversity of offered courses, with which the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design was able to establish a high-performance institution for teaching and research. The modern organisational structure of the University and the various cooperations with international Institutions for teaching but especially the cooperation with the neighboured ZKM (Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe) was highly valued.

ACADEMIC STUDIES

There are five degree programs at the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design, four of the five being applied programs and one being a theory program.

Applied Programs:

  • Exhibition Design and Curatorial Practice (diploma course) 
  • Communication Design (diploma course) 
  • Media Art (diploma course) 
  • Product Design (diploma course) Theory Program:

Art Research and Media Philosophy Within the applied programs the following courses are additionally taught:

  • Digital Media 
  • 3D-Lab 
  • Film 
  • Photography 
  • Curatorial Practice 
  • Sound 

The four applied programs terminate in a Diploma examination (Dipl.-Des.), the theory programs Art Research and Media Philosophy terminates in the Magister Phil. (MA). The theory programs Art Research and Media Philosophy can be continued to a Conferral of a Doctorate (Dr. Phil.).

Unlike other universities, the programs of the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design require interdisciplinary studies. For students of the theory-programs, it is mandatory to choose one practice-program. For students of the practice programs, it is obligatory to take course in either Art Research or Media Philosophy as a minor subject.

To study at the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design, the “Allgemeine” or “Fachgebundene Hochschulreife” (university entrance qualification) and successfully taking the entrance examination is prerequisite.

The Karlsruhe University of Art and Design's four practice-programs are open programs that allow intense references to other programs and contain various accentuations, depending on the emphases of research and development of the involved Teachers. The media theoretical analysis interfuses the experience-oriented programs and on the other side the media theoretical and art historical education is substantiated through a direct experience-oriented reference.
