Summary: "Akademie X is an art school without walls. Unrestricted by geography and open to all, it brings together the finest faculty of arts educators from across the globe ... Its tutors have the freedom to instruct and guide according to their individual style, revealing wisdom drawn from their own experiences or setting structured assignments and tasks. They inspire creativity by presenting examples of their work, while their resources lists offer stimulating guidance for self-directed study. Akademie X's educational philosophy is that, above all, students need preparation for professional life--in practical, financial and ideological terms. Here, they can become fully prepared for the real business of being an artist in the fast-changing environment of the contemporary art world"-- Source other than Library of Congress.
