CONTENTS OF COURSES

Master of Arts (MedienKunstGeschichte - MediaArtHistories)

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. 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), festivals such as Transmediale, and the Media Art market.
