Education // MA Film and Time Based Media

The curious glance at our own view, with enthusiasm and criticism, a self-created distance, allows us to scratch the surface of our own pictures.

The subject area film/time-based media is interdisciplinary and is open to students of fine art and the different areas of design. It can be studied, along with other studies, in cooperation and as a specialization. Time-based media is designed as an open class.
Apart from the teaching of aesthetic and technical basics in the area of the moving image, fine art project work is the focus. These can be either classic film projects or installative works.
Questions, such as how to choose an adequate form, the corresponding medium and how to technically implement the project, play a role. Moreover, the question of how to position oneself and the ability to create links to the general cultural and art historical context.
Specializations are the areas experimental film, video art and experimental documentary. There is a close exchange with the media class of the fine arts program.

Study trips to festivals and exhibitions supplement the course offerings. We strive for an interdisciplinary and international exchange. The colloquium, in which work approaches and results are presented to the group and discussed, is the central location for information exchange. In the course “Perspective Film” selected films and artistic works with moving images are presented and discussed, when possible with invited guests. The subject area film/ time based media has a video workshop equipped with highly modern technology and a workshop manager. A studio is also available for use. Apart from digital technologies, it is also possible to work with celluloid in analog form.
