Konstfack values critical thinking and an empathic approach and therefore focus as much on why a person seeks us out as we do on what they already know. Their Vice-Chancellor Maria Lantz is keen to emphasise that “Konstfack is a school for dreamers, doubters, reformists, believers, activists, utopists, individuals, dystopists, entrepreneurs, ramblers and other seekers.”
Konstfack also has some of Europe’s best, most well-equipped workshops. Computer rooms, wood and metal workshops, screen printing studios, a weaving room, textile printing, colour workshop, graphical workshop, photo and TV studio, glass works, a ceramics workshop and studios for sculpture and painting. The school also has one of Sweden’s most comprehensive art and design libraries.
