The Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe (Karlsruhe College of Arts and Design) is a German college founded in 1992 by Professor Heinrich Klotz, who also founded its sister institution, the Center for Art and Media (Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie). The teaching programme and research focus on new media and media art. Departments include communication design, product design, set and stage design, exhibition design, media art, sound, film, video, digital art, 3D animation, media theory, art history, and philosophy.

The German Council of Science and Humanities certified the HfG's educational approach as "excellent" in spring 2008.

At the HfG Research Institute, modelled after Anglo-Saxon research institutions, scientists and graduate researchers carry out independent research projects; the Institute encourages an interdisciplinary approach. The 3D lab "Expanded 3 Digital Cinema Laboratory", for example, focuses on 3D television and cinema.

The current chancellor is Professor Dr. Peter Sloterdijk.
