Profile-defining points of focus for the future

The University of Art and Design Linz is going to distinguish itself artistically, creatively and academically as a place of unrestricted, brave and visionary thinking and a zone of critical experimenting. With the clear goal of qualitative and quantitative growth, the university commits to four profile-defining points of focus (excerpt from the development plan until 2027 - only in german):

Contemporary Art and Beyond

Postdigital Cultures

Sustainable and Critical Design

Transformative Research and Education


These four points of focus are the further development of the previous three pillars of the University of Art and Design’s profile. They accentuate the university’s high standards and its determination to act with an eye to the future and to adapt its contents and resources to meet the social/societal, ecological and technological challenges of globalisation and digital transformation.
