From November 19, 2018, the University of Applied Arts Vienna will present various approaches to its research under the title UNDERSTANDING – ART & RESEARCH in Singapore. In cooperation with the renowned School of Art, Design and Media (ADM), Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTO), exemplary research and teaching will be on display.

It is about understanding possibilities of research of and through art in new ways, about understanding as the very driving force of inquiry, artistic and scientific activity. The desire and claim to contribute to the transformation of society can be viewed, examined, sensed, discussed and experienced through examples from research and teaching, science and art, design and architecture.

15 different examples of artistic research practice are presented, always challenging the established perspective. As a further artistic position, a work by Niki Passath will be presented in Singapore. In addition, there is the work of the Fulldome Laboratory and the Science Visualization Lab.
