Dear students,

To protect the health of everyone, all of our studios and workshops are currently closed for student use.

The course program of the department will take place in the summer semester without physical contact in the form of individual and group supervision.

We are currently exploring all possibilities ensuring to offer the multifaceted program of the department under the current circumstances.

We will try to provide support and feedback, either digitally or by video conference. All changes as content, dates, delivery formats of seminars, etc. we will announce up-to-date on our website.


With best regards and see you soon, the staff from the Visual Arts

First year of study: drawing excursion to Liège, Antwerp and Brussels

The focus is set on the development of a 'culture of travel'. The excursion not only encourages to get to know cultural diversity (in particular the Euregio area), but also to get familiar with significant as well as less known architecture and architectural ideas. These new experiences are processed visually in a personal sketchbook.

Drawing Excursion to Armenia: 29.05.2020 - 07.06.2020. Lecturers: Univ.-Prof. Thomas Schmitz, Anja Neuefeind, Sina Hensel

The event format 'On The Road' thematizes a places through travel. Excursions lead us away from the familiar to new experiences. The unambiguity of the situation of a 'drawing excursion' creates an atmosphere, for those involved in such an undertaking, that 'inspires' everyone.

Freshmens week Project: Body Drawing

A large piece of fabric served as the starting point for an action that looked at the dimensions of body, history, memory and language. In groups, the students developed an action whose goal was the perception of the surrounding space, of fellow human beings and, not least, of oneself. The actions carried out were captured in photographs, which can now be seen in an exhibition in the corridor of the Chair of visual Arts.
