Video enjoys an ambivalent status as an artistic form of expression. On the one hand it conveys the illusion of a documentary, which on the other is dispelled by use of digital technologies. "When the picture and moving picture become a surrogate world, these depictions are always a depiction of the world and its conditions." (Thomas Wulffen)


Students' work is analysed and discussed on a one-to-one and group basis. Presenting one's work is a key aspect of artistic self-expression. At the same time, it is the departure point for the artist to broadly reflect on the development of his/her creative work. Likewise, discussion is aimed at fostering skills, coping with criticism and making constructive suggestions.

Artistic Classes

first cycle and postgraduate programmes

Studies at AdBK Nuremberg are organized in a class structure that unites all students regardless of the semesters they have already completed. The permeable class structures allow students to develop freely and independently within the framework of the academic teaching. In open discourse, the students' created works are reviewed and discussed at regular class meetings.


In the field of fine arts with a focus on liberal arts, the disciplines at the AdBK Nuremberg are divided into ten artistic classes, which are led by a professor.

The study of fine arts with a focus on jewelry and device or graphic design / communication design can each be completed in one class. The teacher training program in art at the Gymnasium can be completed in all free classes.


With postgraduate master's program „Live Art Forms“ the AdBK offers further education, which is aimed at interested parties who have already completed their studies.
