At the department, you will study, create, and explore art and other forms of visual cultures towards some not-yet-known future of “becoming.”
The department has three studies: Art Education, Nordic Visual Studies, and Visual Cultures, Curating, and Contemporary Art. The course and program offerings build a well-rounded and well-tailored degree that supports both depth and breadth. The Department of Art also engages in transdisciplinary studies that enrich learning across Aalto University and beyond. You can learn cutting edge concepts and practice towards:
- Art and science partnering together for biological art studies, investigating technologies for seeing and being seen, developing virtual worlds, creating games and understating the gamification of societies.
- Art, media, and engineering partnering together for embodied interaction, environmental planning, urban conceptualization, critical cartography, and electrical arts.
- Art, social sciences, and education partnering to study the best practices in Nordic institutions and organizations, global and transnational movements and practices, posthuman and network theories.
