At the annual Open House of the Angewandte students and lecturers provide insights into the studios, workshops and ateliers of the University of Applied Arts Vienna and provide information about the study subjects. In December 2020, this will be done digitally for the first time, in order to give potential students the opportunity to inform themselves about studying at the Angewandte despite the current Corona regulations, and thus to reach an even larger audience.
The Department of DIGITAL ARTS / Ruth Schnell invites you to join LIVE zoom sessions, where we will provide information about the study subjects at the department. Students will guide through the virtual environment Closed Doors - Open Hubs, generated via the platform Mozilla Hubs. We present documentations of various collaborative projects that were developed at the department as well as the diploma theses from summer semester 2020.

>>> Closed Doors – Open Hubs
Join our digital environment:
In the face of recurring Covid lockdowns, the students of the Digital Arts Department welcome visitors with a virtual exhibition of their works.
By a digital reconstruction of of their physical classrooms on the online platform Mozilla Hubs, a virtual space was realised to serve as the exhibition venue. The space functions as a base for an independently organized exhibition showing a wide range of current works by the students. The virtual exhibition can be navigated through in a browser.
Each one of you is welcome invited to wander through our digital exhibition. Enjoy your stay in our virtual classrooms and studios, or take a walk in the interlinked external hub worlds.

>>> Documentation remote sandbox, summer semester 2020
From the net to real space:
The department´s seminar rooms, studios, and labs – like almost all spaces of public life – were abandoned from mid-March until summer 2020. In this time we searched for new strategies in our artistic production and education, which conceive this isolation as a productive substance. Under the umbrella title remote sandbox, we developed collaborative works and solo projects, which were not dependent on a shared physical space. Among them are works that influence one another as data streams, automated art processes that take place regardless if someone is watching or not, and performative encounters that try to fathom the conditions needed for community in isolation. The projects were presented at the virtual Applied Festival 2020 as well as at the art fair PARALLEL 2020.
The installation remote sandbox: manifest coupled these works for combined reception. The artistic processes in a virtual collaborative space were released from the web into real space and translated into a 30-minute audiovisual choreography.

>>> Diploma theses summer semester 2020
ALL VIRTUAL - graduating in alternate mode:
As teaching and research at the Angewandte took place in distance mode in summer semester 2020 the diploma theses of Thomas Hochwallner and David Osthoff were shown online as videos. In the context of the Open House we would like to invite you to watch them again.
The 3D animation abscond by Thomas Hochwallner investigates aspects of time, space, localisation, and perspective through experimental montage techniques, cinematic tropes, and 3D camera tracking.
For his video work east, David Osthoff has tracked down the Eastern Railway line. It connects Europe with Asia. Containers roll by, anonymous and abstract. The work unfurls an interplay of silence and noise, which is given a visual counterpart with presence and absence. A space where the rhythms of nature and economy collide in different temporalities.
>>> Documentation OnLine – The Performance
DIGITAL ARTS on the road:
The department regularly cooperates with national and international institutions. This includes cooperations with the "Biennale Sessions - Special Program for Higher Education Institutions" of the Venice Biennial.
The performative project OnLine was shown at the 14th Biennale Architettura in 2014, and in the same year it was showcased at the Salotto d'Arte in Trieste.
The project documentation (Vimeo) can be found here (link).
>>> Documentation DIGITAL ARTS since 1988
Works from over 30 years in video:
A video documentation, created on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Angewandte, shows a selection of diplomas and student projects since 1988.
