About the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art:
The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art is a Department of the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). It is organized as a flexible and experimental educational and research institution and is well known as the first art academy in the Nordic countries to offer education in media art. Today, the unique environment for art and technology in NTNU allows students on Master and Bachelor levels to expand the depth and complexity of their studio practice and to experiment with new approaches across different disciplines and technologies. The Academy has an open structure in which students are free to choose the subject areas on which they want to concentrate during their period of study. These areas include both old and new, analog and digital technologies in the fields of painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, time-based arts and moving image.

The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art has a faculty of 18 staff members, about 40 guest lecturers per year from Norway and all over the world, 75 students in bachelor and master programs and three fellows connected to the national program for artistic research. In addition to this, three researchers are temporarily employed in the framework of two artistic research projects.

The Academy will use the ongoing academic reorganization of NTNU in order to further sharpen the profile and expand its research capacities in its two fields of competence: Art and Technology, as well as Art and Common space.
