Konst, 180 hp

The Bachelor's programme in Fine Art is based and focused on the artistic work of each individual student. The aim is to provide you with the practical and theoretical knowledge needed for a career as an artist.

The teachers you will meet during your studies are all professionally active artists, writers, researchers or curators. Each year you will be assigned a new teacher as personal tutor. Together you will develop an individual study plan and regularly discuss your process, practice and art works.

The programme offers a wide range of electable courses and projects with the purpose of giving you in depth knowledge of techniques and artistic approaches within various genres such as photography, painting, sculpture/installations, film/digital media, performance, aural art, conceptual art, electronics and programming or the intersection between city planning, art and architechture.

Some courses are compulsory, among them a number of workshop courses and courses in art history. You will also be trained to develop a writing practice which is of importance to self-reflection about your own artistic processes. You will learn how to seek and critically engage in knowledge. Art theory and artistic practice form an integral part of your studies. Your individual artistic work is presented in various group or solo exhibitions each year.

We want to encourage critical discussion of the role of art and the artist in society and organize seminars on current concerns within the field. Awareness of identity and situated knowledge, an open conversation that includes difference are important elements in your education and will prepare you for an international professional career.
