Art and Visual Practice Department

The field of work of the Department of Art and Visual Practice is based on the curricular (further) development and specification of the courses offered at the Linz location, the organization and implementation of the teacher training course in Visual Education and participation in the specialist discourse.

The following principles and issues form the framework for teaching and work at the department:

  • Understanding qualitative art education as a constant reflective process of the individual in which their own artistic/creative practice, subject-specific sciences and didactics are closely interwoven,
  • Questions about the constant core competencies of future art educators,
  • the concept of a balanced dialectic between subject-related presentation and free artistic work as well as the question of the balance between purpose-related qualification and the playful freedom of purpose of creative and artistic activities,
  • Analysis of the interplay between the potentials of > material and technology, > personal, social and societal issues, > design challenges and > art.

On the one hand, the department focuses on the conception and development of innovative study programs (didactics), the content of which is oriented towards socially relevant issues. On the other hand, design theory, which is understood as the basis of artistic and creative studies, is significant.
