Kunsthochschule Kassel

The Kunsthochschule Kassel brings together academic, artistic, and art educational programs. Among Illustration, Animation and other areas of specialization a dedicated Games department, KHKgames, was founded in 2018. For our purposes a Game is defined as an approach to interacting with and directing a player or audience. Beyond this very open principle a game can be anything. Students are encouraged to develop a multidisciplinary creative practice and to think across and beyond genres.
