The Kunsthochschule Kassel is an internationally oriented art academy that brings together academic, artistic, and art educational programs. It also has the right to confer doctorates and habilitation degrees, making it one of the few art schools in Germany with university status.
The Kunsthochschule is characterized by its high degree of permeability between the five degree programs. The programs in Visual Arts, Visual Communication (final artistic exam), Product Design (diploma, doctorate), Art Education (teaching profession), and Art Studies (bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, doctorate, habilitation) are linked by a variety of cooperation projects. The open study structure, the interdisciplinary orientation of the teaching, and the pronounced practical relevance of the courses offered enable the approximately 1,000 students and master-class students to be constantly involved in real working processes.
The students experience the documenta at least once during their studies, which means art on a global scale for 100 days and not just during a short visit. In addition, they can work there and experience the artists, curators, and educators up close or while working together. For many students, the documenta offers international cooperation in the form of artist residencies with documenta artists.
Since 2022, the exhibition area, now the recipient of several awards and confirmed for its excellent, contemporary, and sustainable architecture, has offered students the opportunity to practice exhibiting and curating. In addition, TRACES – a transdisciplinary research center for exhibition studies – is anchored at the Kunsthochschule and is a unique institution for exhibition research both nationally and internationally.
