The students of the visual arts track acquire a critical awareness of the different languages that shape the contemporary design and production of visual art, from photography to film, from performance to digital, and two- and three-dimensional representation. They learn how to use these languages both as a means of expression and as a tool for non-verbal communication. They become familiar with art-making to start a career as visual artists and with exhibition management to become critics and curators.
The lecturers of the theoretical courses work as researchers in their fields of investigation, from semiotics to art theory, from the philosophy of science to aesthetics.
Labs and workshops, which can also be taught in English, are conducted by curators and artists from the international art world with the support of qualified assistants. They are organised according to the most advanced international experiences of practice-led research in the visual arts.
The study programme includes internships at Italian and international art institutions.
At the end of the three-year study programme, students can start working in the field of visual arts or continue their studies with a master’s degree to develop their artistic talent and curatorial organisational skills at the same time.
