Digital media and interactive technologies, modern perception of life, and generation of fresh ideas in collaboration with the analog and traditional materials create a basis for the search for new forms of creative expression in the real and virtual environment.
Students of the Department acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills in digital photography and video montage, printing, three-dimensional modeling, media composition, and technologies that allow the creation of a virtual environment, as well as some traditional graphics techniques, such screen printing, monotype and intaglio print.
During the study process, students of the Visual Communication Department develop their own contemporary worldview and critical thinking. They become professional audiovisual media artists.
Existing and former students of the Department fit into the local and international contemporary art scene. Our former students have repeatedly represent Latvia in major art events such as the Venice Biennale, Manifesta, the Sao Paulo Biennale, and the Sydney Biennale.
