A critical and creative research
Konstfack conducts several externally funded research projects with many different partners. Learn more about these under the heading Research projects.
The artistic development (KU-project) at Konstfack aims to develop new content and artistic development. A KU-project is a widening of the school's overall reservoir of knowledge around which a discussion can be conducted between teachers, students, artists, designers, crafters and the community outside Konstfack. KU-projects can be conducted with or without any application in mind. KU activities, together with other research constitute a guarantee of quality in undergraduate education at the Konstfack´s institutions.
The KU Board allocates grants every year for a number of one-year artistic developments.
Five PhD students are working at Konstfack today. Andreas Nobel, Petra Bauer, Frida Hållander, Nina Hällgren and Katji Lindberg.
