Professors, workshop leaders, Meisterschüler:innen, and alumni have expressed a strong desire for a more in-depth training of Artistic Research fundamentals and a third cycle offer in both faculties. Since October 2022 a one-year pilot phase for a postgraduate additional qualification with an emphasis on the intersection between art and research is running at HfBK Dresden. Thus, ten postgraduates can expand their personal skills, professional fields of action, and international networks. The postgraduate supplementary qualification should, on the one hand, improve the postgraduates’ chances of success in the artistic and/or scientific fields, while also increasing the attractiveness of the HfBK in the third cycle, making the university internationally recognizable and competitive. A working group of professors and scientific staff at HfBK developed a concept, which is implemented and will be running until September 2023.
