Department of Fine Arts

The School of Fine and Applied Arts, of the Cyprus University of Technology, constitutes a nodal point for scientific and artistic research and production. The Department of Fine Arts, in particular, aims at becoming a place for artistic and overall cultural research and creation. With an international outlook, the department aims at becoming a meeting point between Europe and the Middle East, projecting anew the centuries-old character of the Mediterranean as a space of crossings, interactions and transcultural cosmopolitanism. At the same time, it aims at creating an environment of high theoretical and aesthetic calibre, for the renewal and enrichment of the Cypriot cultural discourse, as well as, at creating the necessary framework for the promotion abroad of local, contemporary artistic creation. Within the planned undergraduate Fine Arts degree, the Fine Arts Department will offer studies in two-dimensional (painting) and three-dimensional (sculpture) creation, as well as in technological applications in art – from photography to video and to digital, visual and sound applications. The programme will be heavily complemented by courses in the History and Theory of Visual Arts, Architecture and New Media, as well as in Philosophy (including Aesthetics) of Art. Directly related to the aforementioned importance of the historical, philosophical and, generally, theoretical education of the students, has been the commencement – in September 2015 – of the post-graduate (Master’s) programme in the History and Theory of Art, with which the Department of Fine Arts was inaugurated. © 2016 C
