Malmö Art Academy

Organisational unit: Department


Malmö Art Academy offers fully equipped premises with workplaces for various artistic techniques, in the central of Malmö. Every student has access to a studio from the first year. The students organize their own course plan, choosing from a wide range of courses in art techniques, methods, and theory. The courses are led by international artists, who are also individual tutors for the students. Exchanges with students and teachers from other academies are very important for the academy. Another important feature of the academy is the international profile which is accentuated by having Denmark and the continent nearby. Malmö Art Academy is also given benefits from the rich artistic activity in the region with its art galleries, museums, and other institutions.


The four-year doctoral program at Malmö Art Academy is the first of its kind in Sweden. The education is based on artistic theory and practice. The reflective and theoretical content of the education is not the goal but a means of artistic development and the emphasis for the studies is on independent artistic development work. The education aims to give the doctoral student the opportunity to develop knowledge of artistic research questions and the ability to communicate this to the outside world, to achieve an in-depth artistic maturity and awareness in their own artistic work and to have an in-depth ability to work within the art world in a national and international perspective.
