Every year since 2002, Ars Electronica and the University of Art and Design Linz have hosted an exhibition by artists associated with an international higher-education institution whose curriculum takes an innovative approach to teaching media art and media culture. The intention of the Campus format is to invite outstanding international universities working in the academic fields of media arts and design. Projects highlighted here represent the nature of the mission and activities of invited guest universities from all around the world. These showcases became an essential part of the festival and an instrument to analyze and visualize different models of educational approaches in artistic and creative areas. It has also increasingly developed into a stage for contextualized works from alumni, professors or associates from the universities to map the identity of academic institutions, their history and current practice. Part of Campus’ mission is to enable the presentation of young, local media artists and their work with international exposure.


The University of Art Linz and the Atelierhaus Salzamt are bringing together perspectives from more than 20 art universities from around the world whose students are participating in this year’s Ars Electronica Campus. Among them are University of Applied Science Berlin — School of Culture and Design, Department of Communication Design, UNATC – CINETIc Centre in Bucharest, Art & Technology Studies Department of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, London College of Communication, University of the Arts London, Korea National University of Arts | K-ARTS, ArTeC Graduate School of Research in Paris, to name just a few. The Interface Cultures master’s program, which is based in Linz, will be spotlighting the artists studying at the local art university in its tried-and-tested exhibition “Von schwarzen Schwänen” (“Of Black Swans”).
