[Bildnerische] Innsbruck

Bildnerische Innsbruck | © Bildnerische Innsbruck

Within the framework of the teacher training program in Visual Education, the Department of Fine Arts Innsbruck imparts knowledge, skills and techniques to orient oneself in a visual and digital world, to comprehend it and to help shape it artistically. In order to sharpen a differentiated, sensory-reflexive perception, the department focuses equally on the artistic-experimental process as well as on strategies of interaction, participation and mediation.

    Unqualified specialists for science, technology and art: There is a particularly large shortage of teachers in STEAM subjects. The qualification of unqualified and lateral entrants is a good way to close this gap in a timely manner. ProQ-STEAM investigates how early entry or transition into the teaching profession in science subjects, technology & design and art & design succeeds and how professional identity is formed.

    Correspondences: Excursion of the [Fine Arts] to Linz 

    Over a period of five weeks, students from the [Bildnerische] Innsbruck and the Linz Art University wrote letters to each other. The regular exchange resulted in a collaborative collection of image/text combinations, which was presented as part of the exhibition COLLECTING! at Splace am Hauptplatz in Linz. The participating students Janine Zumtobel, Sonja Plattner, Angela Brugger, Özge Can and Mirjam Rizzi were invited to Linz on 19 April for a joint artist talk about the project and reflected on their project together with students from the Linz Art University.

    Student project

Bilder_Nische

Since 2020, a risograph called Rosa has been at the heart of the student-run self-publishing house "Bilder_Nische". Under this label, joint publications are conceived, designed, printed, bound and finished annually by the students of [Bildnerische] Innsbruck.

These include the art publications "Free as an Artist" (2021) and "Glow in the Dark" (2022), as well as diverse and individually designed art editions and unique pieces.
