New Media

New media is a contemporary art field focused on artistic experimentation with pre- and post-digital technologies that fall outside the traditional disciplines of fine arts. This spectre, which covers interactive, sound and audiovisual art, is present, as an interdisciplinary mix, in the professional practice of our students. Our graduates work as artists, television producers, multimedia designers, entrepreneurs and technological artists. The list of our alumni includes Aivar Tõnso, Piibe Piirma, Hannes Aasamets, Mart Normet, Katrin Enni, Eve Arpo, Taavi Suisalu, Juhan Soomets, Martin Rästa, Roman-Sten Tõnissoo, Sten Saarits, Tõnis Jürgens.
