THE ART OF VISUAL STORYTELLING
College of X was a new school for visual arts based in Kreuzberg, Berlin.
As a partner project of the renowned Scuola Internazionale di Comics (Italy) from 2017-2019 we developed new themes and tried to offer avant-garde teaching in the fields of Comics, Illustration, Concept Art, Animation and Game Design – not forgetting Storytelling and VR. In the end of 2019 we had to cancel our efforts and close the venue due to unforseen lack of funding.
“The Art of Visual Storytelling” was our motto. We supported a unique and fun, inspiring dialogue for local professionals and amateurs – in English! – across the disciplines; we believed that this would be the answer to produce more original results, over time.
There is still a big gap in the market between amateurs and real professionals in Berlin. The German capital has appeared to be the perfect platform to provide high-class, less expensive training for creative minds who want to upgrade and develop professionally. But without fuel, no vehicle can win a race.
We welcomed both: students after leaving school and young professionals who need to get inspiration and energy to cope better with the pressure of the new digital world. So long and thanks for all the participation and interest!
We were located in Graefestrasse, in the heart of Berlin, an area also known as Graefekiez! You could meet us there, as many did for events, lectures and art exhibitions.
