It would be naive to presume the existence of an absolute world view. Particularly in the age of globalisation, those who are conscious of their origins and cherish their roots can ultimately draw forth the power of self-expression.

Through the possibilities offered by our academy for students to shape their own personal creative environment, a sound foundation can be developed that is propitious to the placement of artwork. Individual unexplored material can also form part of the equation. Those surprised by their own actions already hold the key to the next door in their hands. In the 'melting pot of the world' in which lines of cars wind their way like lumps of food in the intestines, we have to explore side roads to give personality space to unfold. Ladies and Gentlemen, we want to address the catastrophes and mould and model until we've exhausted every option.


"In archaic societal forms dependent on oral tradition, wise men and storytellers were able to significantly enhance the population's chances of survival by passing on their experience. Lehanka fulfils the role of storyteller in a virtuoso manner, also for his students at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg. He communicates his experience in episodes and stories of almost lyrical beauty. Presented with performative commitment they are successful methods of penetrating the roots of artistic creativity, which cannot be verbalised."

(Michael Munding, catalogue contribution, Sculpture Projects Münster, 2007)

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.
