Departments > Graphic Art/Typography/Photography

The aim of the department »Graphic art / Typography / Photography« is to develop an individual visual language through engaging creatively and productively with contemporary and historical forms of photography, typography and graphic art, as well as the discourses associated with them. Characteristic of this department is an openness which encourages experimentation, including experimentation which involves the many connections between writing, images, the moving image and objects in 3-dimensional space.
