The Academy of Visual Arts (AVA) was established in Ljubljana in 2008 to challenge common attitudes towards the arts in Slovenia and the region, particularly regarding the discourse concerning the sociopolitical implications of globalized culture and society.

AVA encourages interdisciplinary research and the use of new media and technologies within a theoretical framework. Study is based on a critical understanding of art within a broad cultural and social context. AVA students are given the practical and theoretical tools as well as experience to work in a wide range of professional artistic environments.

AVA is an independent, non-profit BA (Hons) school that constantly seeks to improve the quality of its courses through annual assessments that are conducted by external examiners. Students at AVA are tutored and supervised by artists and lecturers from various European universities. AVA holds a unique position in Slovenia in that its courses are based on the British higher education system.

Every academic year since 2009, AVA has hosted eight to ten visiting Slovenian and foreign artists and professionals from the field of contemporary visual arts.

The school is located in the very center of Ljubljana and each student is getting his/her own studio space.
