Edition Angewandte: An envelope for arts, sciences, politics and us, 2011

A material collection reflecting on establishing an Art & Science class

An envelope for arts, sciences, politics and us

Mixing realities and mediating myths & methods



Valerie Deifel


Sealed in the book/envelope

are a variety of thoughts, images, considerations, and theoretical references about the immediate and broader context of establishing an Art & Science class at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Two main sources of material are combined: first, contributions that document the development of the department; and second, contributions by invited guests and interesting positions that refer to a wider art/science field. The compiled materials reflect upon experimental investigations into the reality of production of systems, discourses, and institutional structures. The book contributes to the questions of how artistic and scientific methods and practices relate to each other, and how these relations can be enriched and transformed.
