Jewelry and artefacts as artistic medium


The Jewelry and artefacts Arts Class fosters a spirit of cooperation and openness between disciplines, artistic exploration and innovative work processes.

Taking the view of artists as originators, as "creators" of ideas, the inventive phase within the study process assumes an outstanding role. An atmosphere must be created in which students learn the essentials, and are inspired to develop their own personal approaches. Training is therefore based on nurturing students' individual talents. The students themselves are free to develop their own concepts and realise artistic projects on their own initiative. Study is aimed at acquiring individual skills and improving theoretical and practical proficiency. A poetic approach, imagination and Utopian vision lead to experience and expertise.

Jewelry and artefacts as objects of everyday culture are a multi-faceted phenomenon that comprises cultural, social and economic components. The course deals with the wide spectrum and richness of the jewelry and artefacts field. The object is to observe the concept of jewelry and artefacts in all its manifestations and diverse forms, from various angles, and to understand its role within a cultural, scientific, political and industrial context – or quite simply, its social relevance. The focus is not only on breathing life into a personal and individual form of expression, but also on the positioning of jewelry and artefacts in changing times.

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.
