|The highlight of an academic year at the Angewandte is the annual exhibition
"The Essence". "The Essence" showcases the origins and development processes of selected individual and group projects by
students and graduates from the preceding winter and summer semesters. They represent the various art and design departments
as extraordinary idea workshops with their own unique profile. Together with lecturers and students curators organise an exhibtion
of the most intriguing projects Architecture, Industrial Design, Fine Arts, Stage Design, Design, Conservation and Restoration,
Media Art, and Language Art, staging them in a prominent museum context in Vienna: art and design as a seismograph of a changing
society, as a form-giver of society, as an institution that provokes change.
