Young artists from the “Time-based and Interactive Media Art” course at the University of Art and Design Linz present their work.

The exhibition series TIME OUT – Timebased and Interactive Media Arts meets Ars Electronica is a cooperation between Ars Electronica and the Timebased and Interactive Media Arts department at the University of Art Linz.

This exhibition gives students the opportunity to present their work to a broad public at one of the most renowned exhibition venues for media art and to make contact with an international audience, receive feedback and build networks. This also opens up new perspectives and access to unconventional, young artistic creation for visitors.

Together with the Ars Electronica team, the most interesting works of media art are selected each year in line with the overall concept of the Ars Electronica Center. In keeping with the focus of the course, the projects are very diverse and reflect the individual approaches and interests of the artists, both in terms of form and content.

What began in 2013 as a promising idea by Gerhard Funk, then head of the faculty, and Gerfried Stocker, artistic director of Ars Electronica, has become a fixture in Linz’s cultural program over the years.
