The Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg graduation exhibition looks outward, toward new perspectives beyond graduation. For the second time the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg has utilized the entire campus for the purposes of its graduate exhibition. From October 20 to 23, graduating students from the academic year 2016 exhibited their works throughout the academy: the culmination of artistic development from their time of study. The exhibition reflected the academy’s diversity across all disciplines and provided a showcase for its activities.

Around 2500 years ago in Athens the Greek philosopher Plato created the original model of the “academy” with his school of philosophy: a sheltered, secluded environment close to the name-giving Akademeia grove dedicated to free thinking and unfettered by any dogmas. This description applies to Nuremberg not only in respect of the unique academy grounds, but also and more importantly, to a key aspect of our fundamental self-conception: as an academy, and especially as the first art academy to be founded in the German-speaking world in 1662, the academy is committed to this original historical concept of the “academy” institution. It is regarded as a “safe zone” of the (im)possible, a place of free creative experimentation, in which students can develop their own personal artistic leanings during the study process.

The art academy in Nuremberg provides a creative hands-on space in which apparent self-evidences can be sounded out and uncertainties turned into creative products. Within the liberal range of studies, the academy enables a wide spectrum of forms and manifestations of contemporary artistic practice, while positioning them in the relevant social and historical-critical context. Emphasis is on the fine and applied arts along with art teacher training. In the courses devoted to fine arts—sculpture, painting, photography, artistic concept, gold & silver-smithing, and graphic design/visual communication—professors and students work together in open dialogue.
