The School of Sculpture focuses on artistic practices that unfold in three dimensions. The core field of study is sculpture, objects, installations and art in public spaces.

The School looks towards the preconditions of contemporary art. Supporting this, its activities include visits to exhibitions, meeting artists, curators and critics, going on excursions and study trips and reflecting on theory. The School also invites guests to visit the school, arranging lectures and engaging the students in an ongoing dialogue.

The professor is in charge of the School’s academic management and holds the responsibility for outlining the academic profile of the School of Sculpture. The professor is very welcome to collaborate with students on this.
