ECAM Graduate School

The aim of design, art and media research and practice at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design Basel is to enhance and understand the significance of the cultural and economic transformation processes they engender as defining and relevant to social change.

In this context, we have participated widely in the discourse on the necessity of consolidating artistic research. In order to create appropriate institutional conditions we established the internationally orientated European Centre of Art, Design and Media-Based Research ECAM including a Graduate School that started in summer 2016 to expand our educational responsibility and to have access to third cycle education with a research-oriented PhD track.

Our Project Partner is the University of Art and Design Linz in Austria. Together we started a first 3 year practice-based programme for doctoral students that is supported by Swiss Universities. The doctoral title will be given by the University of Art and Design Linz in Austria.
