Live Art Forms performative practices master’s program is accepting applications for its third academic year, which begins in October 2023.

We invite potential students interested in expanding their performative and aesthetic practices across various disciplines and media—within and beyond visual and performing arts. We speak about Live Art Forms in terms of an “undisciplined“ program. However, important threads in daily studying and research are situating student’s performance-oriented projects in a multiplicity of public spaces; mentoring their use of digital technologies in performance making and supporting the development of their scores and choreographies, moving practices as well as body-based research. We created it to enable participants to grow with us towards an individual, collaborative or collective artistic practice and with the intention to foster a multitude of world views and care for a plurality of identities from various contexts. 

The program is hosted and directed by Professor JP Raether (performative practices), Assistant Professor Tamara Antonijevic (expanded dramaturgies), and Professor Kerstin Stakemeier (theory). 

A group of international Visiting Artist Lecturers are invited to teach an array of classes in varying constellations and engage with students’ work in individual mentoring sessions. The past two years included lectures, seminars and mentoring by Alex Baczynski-Jenkins, Melanie Bonajo, Valentina Desideri, Va-Bene Elikem Fiatsi, Johanna Hedva, Pauline Curnier Jardin, Jessika Khazrik, Omsk Social Club, Maria Scaroni, Jenna Sutela, Yana Thönnes, Jelena Viskovic, and others. In the coming phases, we welcome Every Ocean Hughes, Stefanie Comilang & Simon Speiser and caner teker to the program.

As a low-residency program, Live Art Forms especially welcomes applications from international students. The program features a uniquely structured course load with one-month-long teaching phases in the fall, winter, spring, and summer. These phases require student’s presence on campus at the academy in Nuremberg. They alternate with longer phases of independent study, during which students are free to pursue their projects off campus.

All classes are taught in English. Knowledge of German is not a requirement for application. As a public university, we offer the program free of tuition for students from all world regions. Please visit our website for more information on the application process and detailed admission requirements or @liveartforms Instagram for regular updates and events. 

The Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg (AdBK Nuremberg) provides excellent study and research opportunities to around 300 students and brings together a diverse range of creative practices under one roof. In addition to students’ individual artistic development, we promote transdisciplinarity, diversity and cultural open-mindedness. We have been nurturing the artistic and creative ambitions of our students and staff for over 350 years. The Academy is situated in a transparent and light-filled pavilion architecture that harmoniously blends into its surroundings—successfully combining studios, workshops and facilities in one campus.

If you would like to attend our online information session on March 24 2023, 4pm (CET) register here with your full name and the country from which you will be joining the session.
