Leonardo Scholarship for Media Art Histories
The scholarship is planned to answer the critical challenges of the 21st century, which require mobilization and cross-fertilization among the domains of art, science and technology by supporting the studies of a new researcher or artist.

The postgraduate program MediaArtHistories conveys the most important developments of contemporary art through a network of renowned international theorists, artists and curators like: Erkki HUHTAMO, Lev MANOVICH, Christiane PAUL, Roger MALINA, Jens HAUSER, Jeffrey SHAW, Jussi PARIKKA, Gerfried STOCKER, Christa SOMMERER & Laurent MIGNONNEAU, Sean CUBITT, Paul SERMON, Oliver GRAU, Edward SHANKEN, KNOWBOTIC RESEARCH,  Frieder NAKE, Machiko KUSAHARA, Nat MULLER, Gunalan NADARAJAN, Monika FLEISCHMANN, Margit ROSEN, Andreas LANGE, Christopher SALTER, Darko FRITZ, Irina ARISTARKHOVA, and others.

Historical derivations that go far back into art and media history are tied in intriguing ways to digital art. Key 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. 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. Artists and programmers give new insights into the latest software and interface developments.
