Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM)

The Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM), inaugurated in 1990, offers an educational concept that cross-links and integrates the fields of film, art and theory in one single degree course titled Media and Fine Art (since summer term 2011, before called Audiovisual Media). The curriculum promotes an interdisciplinary and multifaceted engagement with media arts. Stage One provides elementary theoretical and artistic knowledge during three semesters. Stage Two as well as Postgraduate Studies give each student the opportunity to specialize in disciplines ranging from, for example photography, feature film, documentary and experimental film, animation, video and light art, design, sound, scenography, experimental informatics, sculpture, art in public space and architecture to theory, aesthetics and the history of machines, the arts and the media. The major study areas are organized in fields, and during their studies students can individually select their areas of interest and interdisciplinary combinations as desired. Student work is project-orientated and takes place in workshops, studios and labs, accompanied by lectures and seminars that convey the historical and theoretical basics of media arts.
