The Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin, embedded in a regional and international network of cooperative ventures and partnerships, promotes collaboration among institutions. On the one side this should jointly develop issues and projects, on the other side it should enable students to participate in diverse activities and supports their endeavors. The cooperation with art academies in the whole world concerns aspects of mobility during the study as well as aspects of activities concerning different cultures. Not at least it promotes the cultural exchange at the academy itself because more than 30 per cent of the students are foreigners.
