Art&Science Information Meeting


The meeting will contain an outline of our master's programme and an opportunity to ask the Art & Science team any questions you may have regarding the course and application process. It will be held during the Angewandte Festival 2019 in the main building of the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
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.

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


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 master’s programme has in mind that 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 where 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, and the relation, application, and development of artistic and scientific positions, methods, media, and organisations. Thus, it implies exploring a frequently controversial societal thematic space, where the disciplinary, scientific–artistic ivory tower is infiltrated, where students locate and investigate – and possibly generate themselves – more or less conspicuous sociotechnical ruptures in our society.

Since the meeting is during the Angewandte Festival 2019, a selection of our master’s projects from the year 2018/2019 will be shown in the exihibition Eat Our Cookies, and the new book C.A.T.: Catastrophic Animals on Terra – A guidebook to life elsewhere will be presented.

The cookie as an invitation to sit, read and have a look. A friendly, well-meaning bait so to speak. A common dough we wade through to find bits of chocolate here and there.
Participants: Daniela Brill Estrada, Anna Lerchbaumer, Rafael Lippuner, Frédérique Neuts Leroy, Marc Schuran

From 2016–19 students of the Art & Science master´s programme have been working on the implications of a contemporary academic discourse that aims at reframing our understanding of ‘nature’ through the annual topic ‘In the Woods – In the Wild’. After staying in the forests of Transcarpathia for ten days in 2017, the group returned in 2018 to assemble its research findings, allies and questions around a plot of land in Nyzhnje Selyshche/Ukraine in search for a latent commons. The 48-hour happening, ‘The Landing is on Friday’, was an event of ‘speculative ecology’. The guidebook produced results from the collective experience in speculative research.
Participants: Brishty Alam, Guadalupe Aldrete, Golnaz Bashiri, Rosie Benn, Margit Busch, Valerie Deifel, Johanna Folkmann, Maximilian Gallo, Athanasios Gramosis, Matilde Igual Capdevila, Bernd Kräftner, Rafael Lippuner, Marko Marković, Frédérique Neuts, Marina Rebhandl
