Together with researchers conduct basic work on the documentation of monuments, preparing exhibitions of works of art, its dissemination and the circulation of works of art. The common passion - workers and students - are reflected in joint initiatives - scientific circles, jointly organized conferences, exhibitions, cultural events. We support substantively and organizationally individual interests of students with specific artistic phenomena of our region (including art industrial, housing workers formulated as a garden city, contemporary artistic activities of the Silesian district). Students during the three-year study take independent initiatives in the field of research topics carried out exercises, workshops, seminars, thesis.
