The University of the Arts Bremen
(German: Hochschule für Künste Bremen
, HfK Bremen) is a publicly funded university in Bremen
and one of the most successful ones whose roots in music, arts and design date back to 1873. The University of the Arts Bremen runs a faculty of fine arts & design and a faculty of music with approximately 900 students, 65 professors and about 180 assistant professors.
The academic pillars of the University of the Arts Bremen are music
. Within Germany, the special combination of the music and visual arts department beneath one roof can only be found at the University of the Arts Bremen and the Berlin University of the Arts
. Recent developments in interplay in the fields of art and music (like video art, new media, digital media, auditory design) emphasised the good sense of this fecund affiliation of disciplines.
In 1998, it had two reasons to celebrate: the 10th anniversary of the University of the Arts and the 125th anniversary of the Art Academy.
Since 2003, the fine arts faculty of the University of the Arts Bremen has located in Speicher XI in the former overseas harbour in the district "Überseestadt". The music faculty is located at a second site in Dechanatstraße in the city centre near the Bremen City Hall
and the Bremen Cathedral
