Funen Art Academy accepts applications to the Basic Module in visual arts starting 11 February 2020. Application deadline: 30 April 2020 at midnight (Danish time).
The Basic Module is a complete study programme corresponding to 180 credits. The programme is a three-year, full-time study programme of six semesters.
The Basic Module in visual arts is a practice-based arts education with special focus on the diverse practices and theories of contemporary art.
The Basic Module is not a media-specific education but focuses on giving students the knowledge and skills necessary to develop an independent artistic practice and establish an artistic production.
Teaching primarily takes place across years of study. It is central to the programme that students meet across years of study and artistic practices through courses and in the studios.
Admission to Funen Art Academy’s Basic Module is based on a professional artistic evaluation of submitted works as well as an interview with selected applicants.
In the evaluation of the applicant’s artistic work, the following criteria are emphasised:
Originality in conceptualisation and execution of works
Independent and critical reflection
Artistic courage and ambition
Artistic and academic potential
Understanding of the context of contemporary art
There are no set requirements regarding prior education or special technical skills. Applicants are expected to have a command of Danish, Norwegian or Swedish and English sufficient to complete the education as prescribed. Each semester, modules and courses in English amounting to the 30 credits necessary to complete a full-time semester are offered, such that non-Danish speaking students can complete the programme within the prescribed period.
We recommend preparing for the study at Funen Art Academy by attending study programs or receiving individual tuition focusing on contemporary art.
