Help for art and design students from Ukraine

Art and design students from Ukraine are welcome at Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design. In order to build a creative bridge, we have enabled a fluent transition for refugee students. We are open to working out individual solutions together which are adapted to the respective situation of Ukrainian students and which allow them to continue their artistic and design work as quickly as possible. This is carried out in direct consultation with the responsible professors. The Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design welcomes the helpfulness, solidarity and participation of its students, teachers and staff.

Art History and Visual Cultures

Art History is at at the centre of historical and current visual culture, in as much as the images of a culture relate to the images of art created in it: to visual inventions, subjects, compositions, techniques, effects of the art image. A term for art formulated in the Ancient World, which has differentiated since the Early Modern period and has developed from there constantly up to the present, cannot be considered in isolation but in a closely mutual exchange with the today’s diverse, especially visual cultures transported by mass-media, also with sciences, with politics with advertising etc. Art as a partial field behaves critically towards the culture and society which produces it. It supplies mirrored, distorted or counter images of culture and develops images of the future. Art History as a subject of a university for art and design dedicates itself initally to historical visual cultures as a whole: to the long-lasting image tradition – right up to the present, to the relations of contemporary art and visual cultures towards art and visual history and the functions of art in the context of a variety of image/visual practices. In the context of global visual cultures, the western term art becomes more acute.
