Each member of the Academy belongs to one of its six Sections:


Visual Arts
Performing Arts
Film and Media Arts


Art projects, exhibitions and special events of the Akademie der Künste are developed, coordinated and carried out by its arts sections. These include both specific plans of the individual art genres and interdisciplinary, Akademie-wide projects, in which several sections collaborate or work in parallel. Each section is led by a director, who is also a member of the Akademie’s Senate.
Section secretaries are responsible for implementing the work of the sections.

The Akademie der Künste supports the interdisciplinary initiatives of the JUNGE AKADEMIE, which affect all of the sections.
