The Department of Site-Specific Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna offers an Open House Day in October 2019! You are very welcome to join us on October 23, 2019 and get an idea of our department and our program.

We offer students:
- A curriculum that combines theory and practice-based skills to support students' artistic developmentStudios and metal/wood/casting workshops and media facilities
- A designated exhibition space for students
- Engaged Faculty with diverse background
- International visiting artists and lecturers from various fields
- The opportunity to join courses in other departments e.g. sculpture, painting, transmedia

The degree course for Site-Specific Art runs for 8 semesters and includes the „central artistic course' as well as electives in crafts, theory, and a variety of media-related practices. The central course focuses on the notion of site as well as on actual sites and their context as driving forces, material to work with, and as places of activity and for action.
There are no limits to the actual strategies employed: works can be performative, conceptual, object-related, processual, and may refer to social, political or art-specific topics. We consider the class as a field for experimentation where it becomes possible to shift settled notions and develop an individual artistic position.

Students' individual interests are stimulated by working within a designated exhibition space, by reflecting in one-on-one conversations as well as with peers or through writing, and by manual artistic realizations in analogue and digital studios. We expand our focus with collective exhibition visits, projects, field trips.

Artists, curators, researchers and scientists are invited on a regular basis to present their work and give one-on-one feedback to students. Past lecturers include:
Franz Xaver Baier, James Benning, Margit Czenki / Christoph Schäfer, Bogomir Doringer, Matt Edgeworth, Christian Falsnaes, Philipp Furtenbach, Julia Grillmayer, Alice Gorman, Jakob Jakobsen, Franz Kapfer, Anna Kim, Johanna Kirsch, Krassimira Kruschkova, James Lewis, Ernst Logar, Gabriele Mackert, Christian Mayer, Christiane Meyer-Stoll, Jeanette Pacher, Barbara Pichler, Ursula Maria Probst, Karin Raith, Drehli Robnik, Tomash Schoiswohl, Asmus Tietchens, Mechtild Widrich
