Opened in 1688 as a private academy by Peter Strudel, court and chamber painter to Emperor Leopold I, the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna has been a leading European training centre for artists for more than 300 years.

Today, it offers its almost one thousand students a variety of courses which range from painting and sculpture to photography and video, performance and conceptual art, and also includes architecture, scenography and restoration. The institutes for Art and Cultural Sciences and for Natural Sciences and Technology in the Art ensure a high theoretical standard in all the departments, through seminars and projects. It also includes the training of art teachers, which is regarded as an essential contribution to the communication of art. The possibility for students to make individual choices of courses at both these institutes enables wide-ranging qualifications.

Five buildings covering a total area of 33,500 square metres are available at the Academy for teaching and research. All the different sections have state-of-the-art laboratories, workshops and studios. The video and the sound studio are among the best of their kind in Austria.
