The MediaArtHistories MA at Danube University is the only international
Master of Arts program focused on preparing art professionals and
researchers through a deep exploration of the diverse histories of Media
Art, Science and Technology. An interdisciplinary field at the
intersection of digital technology and humanities disciplines,
MediaArtHistories examines the knowledge frontiers of new media,
digital, and electronic art. It addresses the scientific discovery and
technological innovation that emerge as part of these art practices and
productions, as well as the genealogies of their historical development
and context. At a time when digital technologies are fundamentally
revolutionizing the very ways in which we communicate, interact, and
perceive images, the MediaArtHistories program trains students from
diverse backgrounds to critically analyze the visual media cultures of
today.

The program is a two-year low-residency, either 90 or 120 ECTS Masters
degree offered in English. In addition to individual study and project
work at your home location, students gather 2-3 times a year for intense
seminar modules with internationally renowned media artists and
scholars. These enriching sessions take place at Danube University or
another European location relevant to the community of media art, such
as Linz, Austria as well as Karlsruhe and Berlin, Germany.


Since its beginnings in 2006, Danube Universitys prestigious
MediaArtHistories MA has offered its students both a deeper critical
comprehension and a practical orientation regarding the most important
developments of this most contemporary art, by building on its faculty
network of renowned international theorists, artists, and curators.
These faculty come from across the globe to give seminars during the
modules held at Danube University, and from their home universities
maintain through online network and project collaboration individualized
instruction with students throughout the program.

==> CONTENT - Courses cover Media Art genres such as Net, Telematic and
Genetic Art as well as the most recent reflections on Nano, Bio and
Transgenic Art, Video Games, Computer Graphics and Animation, Virtual
Reality, Augmented Reality, and Intelligent Environments, Hacktivism and
Tactical Media, Performance, Glitch Art, hybrid art and Robotics.
MediaArtHistories offers a basis for understanding the evolutionary
history of media, from historic examples such as the Laterna Magica and
Mechanical Automaton of the 17th century, to computer art at the
earliest stages of the Internet in the mid-Twentieth Century and the
algorithmic art of today. Explored in depth are key methods and theory
from Digital Humanities, Image Science, Media Archaeology, Sound
Studies, the Intellectual History of Science & Technology, and Digital
Gender Theory. Excursions, and on site faculty seminars, introduce
students to the main cultural heritage institutions in the field, such
as Ars Electronica and ZKM, archives such as the Archive of Digital Art
(ADA www.digitalartarchive.at), festivals such as Transmediale, and the
Media Art market. 


==> AUSTRIA - the low-residency modules allow working professionals to
maintain their usual employment, and students entering directly after a
Bachelors degree will have opportunity to gain valuable career
experience while they study. Students are eligible for student visas for
year-round residency, enabling parallel pursuit of a research project
with the Archive of Digital Art or digitized Graphic Art Collection of
nearby Göttweig Abbey, both developed by Danube University, or other
opportunities for internships within the MediaArtHistories network.
Portions of the Modules take place at the Center for Image Science
housed at the Göttweig Abbey. The Danube University is located in the
UNESCO World Cultural Hertiage "WACHAU" and offers a spectacular
backdrop for learning and living.
