Danube University Krems is the first public university
in Europe which specializes in advanced continuing education
offering low-residency degree programs for working professionals
and lifelong learners. The Center for Image Science, where
many MediaArtHistories courses take place, is housed in a
14th century Monastary, remodeled to fit the needs of modern
research in singular surroundings.

With its new modular courses starting in November 2006
the Center for Image Science (CIS) at Danube University offers
an educational program unique in Europe.

Without interrupting their career students have the opportunity to
through direct, hands-on experience, social learning in small groups
and contacts with commerce and industry. They gain key
qualifications for the contemporary art and media marketplace.

International experts analyze the image worlds of art, science,
politics and economy and elucidate how they originated, became
established and how they have stood the test of time.
The innovative approach at CIS is reinforced by praxis-oriented study,

for example, of new types of image and video databases
and the application of advanced processes for converting
image collections into digital form. The post-graduate MA
courses offer instruction in a finely tuned mix of practical skills,
theoretical knowledge and close cooperation with top
researchers and professionals from the international
image science community.

=> First international Master in MEDIA.ART.HISTORIES (English
The postgraduate program MediaArtHistories conveys the
most important developments of contemporary art
through a network of renowned international theorists,
artists and curators like Steve Dietz, Erkki Huhtamo,
Lev Manovich, Christiane Paul, Paul Sermon, Oliver Grau
and many others. Using online databases and other
modern aids, knowledge of computer animation, net art,
interactive, telematic and genetic art as well as the most
recent reflections on nano art, CAVE installations, augmented
reality and wearables are introduced. Historical derivations
that go far back into art and media history are tied in
intriguing ways to digital art.  Important approaches
and methods from Image Science, Media Archaeology
and the History of Science & Technology will be discussed.
Media Art History offers a basis for understanding evolutionary
history of audiovisual media, from the Laterna Magica to
the Panorama, Phantasmagoria, Film, and the Virtual Art
of recent decades.
