Diploma awarding Studio

ass. tutor Aleksandra Trojanowska, MFA


The programme of the Studio encompasses artistic practice and theoretical research in the field of contemporary audio-visual time-based media, i.e. media whose one dimension is time. The emphasis is on learning, using and critically examining methods of narration with the use of these media. The Studio also conducts activities combining science and art; students are introduced to the basics of bioart, and thanks to the cooperation with the Wrocław University of Life Sciences, they can participate in workshops conducted by the local academic circles.


Work with students focuses on:

learning the language of film and video

experimenting with linear and non-linear narration (interactive video, immersive VR documentary, 360° video)

interactive and reactive projects, video installations, live audio-visual actions using analogue and digital instruments

critical analysis of the phenomena of contemporary audio-visual culture

    Students have at their disposal a studio with recording, editing and video post-production equipment,

    specialist equipment for macro recording, software for AV live actions, microcontroller sets and a set of analogue musical instruments. The studio also offers the possibility of organising rehearsals and presentations.

    We cooperate with the Wrocław Academy of Music and national cultural institutions. It is important for us that

    student projects are presented during exhibitions, concerts and events organised in Poland and abroad.
