The medium of photography enables a complex approach not only to visibility. Photography is not only a passive recording, but also an active means of expression, representation, reflection and cognition. The photographic visual worlds are omnipresent and cannot be cuted out.


The context of the class provides a resonant space for students' individual artistic processes and for collaborative explorations of changing themes. Individual and group discussions, field trips and exhibition visits, readings, guest posts, and projects provide the framework.


Working with photography itself allows for open edges to other disciplines. This includes working with the medium as well as reflecting on the medium in order to also question the conditions of one's own perception.


Applicants are advised to attend one of the portfolio consultation appointments announced on the Academy website before applying.

Prospective students are welcome to contact the tutor of the class.

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.
