Sculpture (BA)

The first-cycle study programme in Sculpture is an interdisciplinary artistic study. It gives students the opportunity to develop into broad and knowledgeable personalities. In the processes of learning and creating, students of sculpture research get to know, combine and bring together broad theoretical areas; they acquire and combine theoretical/conceptual and practical/technical procedures.

While learning about the past and modern sculptural languages and developing one’s own expressions, the course will encourage students to be curious and analytical, carrying out contextual research and identifying various themes, forms and procedures. At the same time, by employing different aspects such as theoretical, practical, formal, material and conceptual, students will learn about the complex relationships between the material, content-related, formal, ontological and imaginary layers, and about the social conditions for sculptural forms and their perception. The programme is based on individual student work, assignments and projects that encourage the student’s reflection and analysis, an experimental approach and also the development of sculptural forms and procedures outside the existing solutions and conventions.

Today’s sculptors are not satisfied just with technique, the direct realisation of mimetic or visual art ideas by mastering basic techniques, as modern sculpture is becoming increasingly complex. It requires mastering and connecting the conceptual and technical processes of sculpture, as well as the analysis and synthesis of contemporary positions and new media in art production. That is why the undergraduate programme Sculpture is interdisciplinary, with the aim of creating a knowledgeable personality who, in the process of creating and developing a work, understands and connects broad theoretical knowledge and behaviour and combines ideological and technical procedures.
