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.

At the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts, students of Fine Art / Painting are familiarized with different possibilities of the extended field of painting through discussions, seminars and practical guidance. Pictures can represent the world; they can relate to other pictures; they can call a surreal or metaphysical world. They can tell us something about our own perception, about the society in which we live, or about the cosmos.

Their materiality also plays an important role – in the question of the possibilities and limitations of the image, and in the practice of making images. You can paint with materials that were already used in the Stone Age, as well as with the very latest inventions. Images can be created by brush and paint on canvas, paper or other carriers, by printing processes, but also with the help of computers. A photograph, a video, a thought or a concept can also be paintings.

During their studies, the student’s own artistic possibilities are tried out and developed. In group discussions, students learn to present and formulate their own work. The conversation with the others allows a constructive criticism. One-to-one interviews with the professor are designed to help students to see their own questions more clearly and give them further advise.

In our workshop for painting, different techniques of painting are taught by a Marco Reichert: from the basics of oil or tempera painting on different surfaces to painting with the help of a robot. Students can also gain practical knowledge in all other workshops of the university.

In accompanying seminars, each semester we focus on one topic, for which lecturers and teachers are invited. We travel on excursions and prepare exhibitions and projects together. We publish publications in collaboration with the department of Typography. The Muthesius Academy of Arts offers many opportunities for collaborating with other disciplines or cooperating with other universities.

The class for painting is open to artists as well as future art teachers.
