Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design distinguishes itself through intensive research praxis in all areas. The development of new ideas, critical research of new materials and techniques, as well as the drive for critical discourse on advanced arts and design, form part of the basic program. Here, communication or product design are not perceived as vocational training, rather developed experimental practices out of which pioneering solutions are generated. Research in the latest technologies for communication and information is essential to the production of art with and through media.
