We will present the Merz Akademie in an introductory talk (9:30 a.m.) and show current projects of the students. The studios – Greenbox, Virtual Reality Lab, Tonstudio, Siebdruckerei and Fotostudio – are open to all interested visitors and provide a comprehensive insight into the daily work of the Merz Akademie.
In all four fields of study at the Merz Akademie, both general and discipline-specific media design skills are taught. The university’s excellent technical equipment enables professional work in the various studios, and the small groups guarantee individual support for each student.
The main focus of teaching is the examination of aesthetic, cultural and scientific contents. The aim of this combination of theory and practice is to educate students as authors who communicate via a wide variety of media they have created. After seven semesters of study, the graduates will not only have design skills, but also content skills. Thus, they are optimally qualified for their professional future in the field of media design and communication.
