The Institute for Art Education at Justus Liebig University Giessen is a specialist training centre with a lively tradition. Renowned representatives of art education have taught at this institute. Significant impulses for the development of the discipline have come from here, such as the turn to the aesthetics of mass media in "Visual Communication" or "Aesthetic Education" and currently "Artistic Education" and "Transcultural Art Education". In the past, the field of art history, which is currently dominated by visual studies, was characterised by a feminist influence that was significant for the development of the discipline in Germany. With its current focal points in research and teaching, the institute is building on these traditions and providing impulses in the national and international specialist discussion.
