Always so interesting dear Oliver and still no French in the BRAIN TRUST
It's better to be a psychoanalyst in Paris than to try to teach the art of
the media.

All my best,

> MEDIA ARTS: Histories and Futures
> International - low-residency – Master of Arts – Starts September
> 2019
> Deepening praxis and critical comprehension of the digital
> developments
> in contemporary art
> An interdisciplinary field at the intersection of art, science,
> technology and the humanities, MediaArtHistories examines scientific
> discovery and technological innovation emerging in art praxis, as well
> as the genealogies of their historical development and context. At a
> time when digital technologies are fundamentally revolutionizing the
> very ways in which we communicate, interact, and perceive images, the
> MediaArtHistories program trains students from diverse backgrounds to
> critically analyze the plethora of visual media cultures of today.
> 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. Special
> attention is given to the challenges of documentation and preservation
> of these born-digital, ephemeral and multifarious works. 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.
> The program is a two-year low-residency, either 90 or 120 ECTS Master
> degree offered in English. In addition to individual study and project
> work at your home location, students gather 2-3 times a year for
> intense
> seminar modules with internationally renowned media artists and
> scholars. These enriching sessions take place at Danube University or
> another European location relevant to the community of media art, such
> as Linz, Austria as well as Karlsruhe and Berlin, Germany.
