MEDIA ARTS: Histories and Futures
International - low-residency – Master of Arts – Starts May 2019
Deepening praxis and critical comprehension of the digital developments
in contemporary art
An interdisciplinary field at the intersection of art, science,
technology and the humanities, MediaArtHistories examines scientific
discovery and technological innovation emerging in art praxis, 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 plethora of visual media cultures of today.
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. Special
attention is given to the challenges of documentation and preservation
of these born-digital, ephemeral and multifarious works. 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 (
http://x7w9.mj.am/link/x7w9/xxs9t2hh/a4/XuIk1Vlz0Xc0IrHulm0Row/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5kaWdpdGFsYXJ0YXJjaGl2ZS5hdC8
)), festivals such as Transmediale, and the Media Art market.
The program is a two-year low-residency, either 90 or 120 ECTS Master
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.

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.

STUDY in EUROPE
the low-residency modularized teaching system allows working
professionals to maintain their usual employment, and gives students
entering directly after a Bachelor degree the opportunity to gain
valuable career experience while they study. Modules take place on the
main campus and at the Center for Image Science housed at the Göttweig
Abbey. The Danube University is located in the UNESCO World Cultural
Heritage “WACHAU” and offers a spectacular backdrop for learning and
living.
The Department for Image Science holds important resources of the field
like the largest international Archive of Digital Art:
www.digitalartarchive.at ( https://www.digitalartarchive.at/ ) and the
MediaArtHistories Conference Archive www.mediaarthistory.org/maharchive
and integrates its cutting-edge research projects into teaching.
STUDENTS
International students to our program have come from locations
including Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, Germany,
Iceland, Japan, Jordan, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Ukraine, and USA.
Alumni of the program are employed not only as freelance curators,
creative designers or working artists, but also at renowned cultural
sector institutions like: Austrian National Library, Süddeutsche
Zeitung, Chicago Art Institute, Deutsche Kinemathek, ETH Zürich, Ars
Electronica, ITAU Cultural, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Pinchuk Art
