The mission of the VACD program is to provide the student with an in-depth understanding of visuality and its applications to the domains of Visual Art and Visual Communication Design. However, our efforts go beyond a sole understanding / application of the visual fields themselves in that we also seek to bring about their integration with other creative output such as sound design, multimedia and temporally based works implemented through the diversified building blocks of our curriculum.



  • Exhibition: Art of Garden Care (Selim Birsel)

    Kimi santaçıların atölyesi bir masa ve küçük bir defterden ibaret olabiliyor. Selim Birsel işlerini hayatın pratiği içinde her koşulda şekillendirmeyi, dönüştürmeyi, kurgulamayı bilen ve seven bir sanatçı. Sesler, kokular, nesneler... ya da beklenmedik bir esinti, bir dalga ve dalgaya atılan bir taş! Yani her an tetikte olmak gerekiyor, çünkü onun işlerinde karşımıza çıkan, ister özne ister yüklem olsun, her bir şey ya maddesi ya da çağrıldığı adıyla bir kelime oyununa dönüşebiliyor aniden, ya da uzun bekleme, kıvam bulma süreçlerine açılabiliyor.
