Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien

The University of Applied Arts Vienna embraces its responsibility to positively influence art, science, and society. It opens up and permanently transcends the present as it points us towards the future. Its teachers and researchers, students, graduates, staff and partners form a collective that strives for an open society and employs artistic and scientific expertise as a key to achieving this:

“We devise new forms of work, learning, and art. We create intellectual and constructive free space and provide a cosmopolitan discourse that is critical yet empathetic. We investigate and evaluate social challenges. We develop radical solutions and new ideas about shaping and managing technological, medial, and social change. The upcoming complex challenges require cooperative and multilayered solutions. We are focused not on simple answers but, rather, the search for appropriate new questions and strategies, which we constantly develop on the basis of our concrete actions.”
