This tour focuses on the Campus Exhibition at the Linz University of Art and Design.
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.
