Academy of Fine Arts Vienna


The Academy of Fine Arts Vienna has been a leading European training centre for artists for more than 300 years.
Today, we offer a variety of courses ranging from painting and sculpture to photography and video, performance and conceptual art, also including architecture, scenography and conservation/restoration to more than 1,000 students. By offering seminars and carrying out a great variety of projects, the Institute of Art Theory and Cultural Studies and the Institute of Natural Sciences and Technology in the Arts ensure a high theoretical standard of teaching in all departments. This is closely linked to the training of art teachers, which we consider central to conveying and communicating art to others. The freedom to choose individual study paths combining courses from all institutes allows for a diverse education.
The strength of the Academy lies both in its teaching staff of successful, internationally recognised artists and in its students from over 50 different countries. The Academy of Fine Arts Vienna features various special facilities: a university library, the Graphic Collection and the Paintings Gallery.
