The MAD Center and Gallery is one of the 3 units of FAD_Faculty of Art and Design at POLIS University. This center aims at contributing in 2 main directions: the further development of the academic process in this faculty; and, the promotion of an integrated form of research and teaching towards experimental and innovative products. This Center coordinates with the Faculties and the IKZH to reach these two primary goals. MAD is an acronym standing for the fields of interest: Multimedia, Art and Design.
