Art & Science: Information Meeting

The meeting will be an outline of the course and an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
Additionally, since it is on the same day as the Open House 2018 - the annual event of University of Applied Arts Vienna, there will also be an Open Studio at the Art & Science department from 4–6pm which you are welcome to join. Students from all years and recent graduates will show their works, finished or in progress, traces of works or past experiences in the studio. You can also look around the department and speak to the students about what goes on.

Please forward onto anyone that you think that may be interested in the course!

Art & Science master’s degree programme

The objective of the Art & Science master’s degree programme is to investigate the relationships between different artistic and scientific representational cultures and their respective cognitive and research methods. An inter- and transdisciplinary approach and project-oriented education should stimulate interaction between model and theory construction, and the application of methods, particularly in the arts and sciences.

The central element of the master’s programme is a project orientation, which has in mind that in a “scientificised” world many everyday topics in society are permeated by scientific knowledge, and that this can lead to controversial discussions. In part, these discussions link complex fields of knowledge and their respective specialised knowledge, and represent different contributions to the development of our society. This is a point of convergence for the – quite often different – questions that art and science pose and a creative crossroad emerges for finding or rejecting answers.

This point of view involves the investigation (and the corresponding indepth study) of social and political processes, the relation, application, and development of artistic and scientific positions, methods, media, and organisations. Thus, it implies researching an oft-controversial societal thematic space, where the disciplinary, scientific-artistic ivory tower is infiltrated, where students locate and explore – and possibly generate themselves – more or less conspicuous socio-technical ruptures in our society. Prerequisite is a thirst for knowledge that leads to a representation, a creative restructuring of the respective themes, in which the respective application or interweaving of certain artistic or scientific methods or media represents the result, and not the departure point, of the research.

For more information on our programme we invite you to look at the activities and works on the website. We also welcome you to join our public lectures and events which are announced through our newsletter.
 

Entry requirements
The requirements for admission to the Art & Science master’s programmes are artistic and/or scientific aptitude (evaluated on the basis of the admissions process) and to have completed the minimum of a domestic (or equivalent international) Bachelor study in any discipline. Candidates should show a special interest in transdisciplinary projects and the ability to deal with techniques that experiment with different methods and media. The 2-year programme is held in English so candidates should also be comfortable in conversing and writing in this language.
