The education offered by the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KIT) focuses first and foremost on the artistic and personal progress of students. Our teaching is based on openness, dialogue and critical reflection, where students move freely in a flexible environment. With support from instructors and guest lecturers from different artistic orientations and backgrounds, the students explore and challenge artistic boundaries, learn, reflect and act. The Academy is actively engaged in an international contemporary art milieu and has working relationships with artists, critics, curators and theorists from across the globe.
The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art is a department in the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and is one of three higher educational institutions in Norway offering courses in Fine Art. KIT is the only Norwegian art academy in the university system. This provides unique resources and opportunities for collaboration with other faculties, such as engineering, architecture and the humanities.
