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!
ART & SCIENCE MASTER´S 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 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.
EAT OUR COOKIES
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.

C.A.T.: CATASTROPHIC ANIMALS ON TERRA – A GUIDEBOOK TO LIFE ELSEWHERE
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
