Diversity as an educational concept for artists and filmmakers - The Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM) and the Media and Fine Art degree course (called since summer term 2011, before called Audiovisual Media).
The Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM) was founded in 1990, true to the media zeitgeist of the time, as a successor to the Kölner Werkschulen
(1873-1993). Since then it has offered an educational concept, unique within Germany, which brings film, art and science together in one degree course: Media and Fine Art (since SS 2011, before Audiovisual Media). As such the KHM is an art school with a focus on media, and a film school that sees its origins in the artistic moving image.
The course of study fosters concurrent engagement in various skills, so that students gain knowledge in a wide range of practical and artistic disciplines. The stage one imparts the basics of theory and artistic practise. The stage two, along with postgraduate or further education courses, then concentrate on individual specialisations in artistic disciplines such as photography, feature film, documentary and experimental film, camera, directing, scriptwriting, animation, video and light art, media design, media scenography, experimental computer sciences, sound, sculpture, and public art.
