visual portfolio

A representative selection of personal work. The work in this portfolio should relate to the film programme: photographs, films, music, drawings, collages, etc. Autonomous artistic work and school-based commissions are possible, but group works made in school are not eligible. Texts, photos, scans of drawings/paintings, etc. are bundled in a pdf document and forwarded together with the rest of the preparatory dossier.

The film should be placed on Vimeo (where a 'Basic' account can be created free of charge). In the portfolio, you then place a link to these films on Vimeo.

Send the portfolio as a PDF document. Adapt the file name according to this scheme: lastname_firstname_portfolio.pdf

filmfragment

A self-made film of up to 3 minutes. The choice of subject, style, form and elaboration are free, but must show observation skills and authenticity. Please avoid video clips. School-based group works are not eligible.

Adapt your file name according to this scheme: lastname_firstname_film

Use common file formats (.mov, .mp4) and keep file size within limits.

test

The test starts with a written part. During the afternoon and the following days, you will be invited for some motivational interviews and a practical test.

written test and film review

The candidate must provide a written answer to a general question on a current social, cultural and/or artistic issue. For the film admission test, you must also discuss and analyse a film. You will be asked questions relating to film content and form.

The aim is to allow the examining board to form a picture of the candidate's theoretical prior education, to gauge the ability to formulate an opinion, to develop a line of reasoning and to edit a short written text.

motivation interviews

During 3 motivation interviews, the candidate's motivation towards art education in general and the specific field of study in particular will be examined. The preparatory dossier forms the basis for the interview and questioning. It is important that the candidate can explain the elements in the dossier and clarify the study choice and expectations.

Interests, general and cultural knowledge, thinking skills, creative attitudes and understanding of image formation are probed. Important qualities here are: critical sense, commitment, drive, love of art and design, perseverance, self-discipline and sense of humour.

photo test

A photo assignment will be given on the spot. Bring your own, simple digital camera; a mobile phone with photo function will do.

Proclamation and feedback

Please note that locations and times are subject to change. Changes will be communicated on the spot.

On the last day of the session, there will be deliberations and proclamation including a feedback moment. During the proclamation, candidates will learn whether they are accepted or not.
