Study guidance / Specialist Advice / Portfolio Consultions

Thank you very much for your interest in studying at the weißensee kunsthochschule berlin. On this page you will find all the information you need about the portfolio and specialist advice as well as our academic evenings.

Specialist Advice

Specialist artistic advice is provided exclusively by specialist representatives of the respective departments. Due to the pandemic, we are unfortunately unable to offer personal portfolio consultations at present. Below you will find the dates for the individual departments. Portfolio consultations in the design degree courses always take place in November/December.

Portfolio consultation SCULPTURE & PAINTING on 29.1.2020 at 14:00

The departments of Painting and Sculpture will jointly offer a digital portfolio consultation via video conference on Friday, 29.1. for all applicants who have successfully registered in Dec. 2020.

There will be a brief open general question and answer session about the portfolio from 14:00 to 14:30.

This will be followed (14:30-18:00) by the opportunity for individual portfolio consultation with tutors from the two departments. It is recommended to be well prepared for the personal consultation, as only 5-10 minutes will be allotted per applicant. It is important to document your own work photographically beforehand so that you can present and discuss it digitally via screen sharing during the video conference.

Please indicate whether you would like to participate only in the general question-and-answer session or whether you would also like to attend an individual consultation afterwards.

We will then send you an email with the access link to the video conference, a personal time slot and all other details to be considered.

Deadline for registration for individual consultation: 26.1.20
