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.
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 in-depth 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 sociotechnical 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.
