In the eleventh edition of the *TIME OUT* exhibition series, students from the “Time-Based and Interactive Media Art” program at the Linz Art University will once again be showing selected works at the Ars Electronica Center. Ars Electronica and the Time-Based and Interactive Media Art program at the Linz University of Art and Design have been working closely together for many years. As part of the *TIME OUT* exhibition series, the Ars Electronica Center provides young media artists with exhibition space for their works. Whether it’s film, sound, performances, programming or interface technology, the “Time-Based and Interactive Media Art” course of study gives its students plenty of freedom to express themselves creatively. The resulting works are as varied as the course itself-a selection of nine works can be seen under the title TIME OUT .11 distributed over various floors in the Ars Electronica Center.
What once began as a promising idea by Gerhard Funk, then head of the “Time-Based and Interactive Media Art” studies program, and Gerfried Stocker, Ars Electronica’s artistic director, has developed over the years into a fixture in Linz’s cultural program. In the twelfth edition of TIME OUT, students from the Linz University Of Art will once again be showing selected works at the Ars Electronica Center.
