Your participation as school

Cultural Collisions offers pupils and teachers a completely new approach to getting to know and gaining insights into TU Wien, mumok and the Vienna Museum of Technology. Pupils immerse themselves in cutting-edge topics in the university environment through creative exploration. The findings enable a well-founded examination of the planning of further school and professional careers.

Program elements

Scientists of the TU Wien prepare technological topics scientifically and bring them closer to artists, students and educators.

Artists translate the technical problems into works of art, exhibit them and inspire through a different perspective.

The inspiration conveyed stimulates the students' own creativity and enthusiasm.

Cultural Collisions begins after the exhibition: pupils and teachers experience a scientifically and artistically prepared topic, take it with them and work on it further in the corresponding subjects. The participating museums provide support in workshops throughout the semester on the way to creating their own artwork.

The works of the participating pupils are collected and presented to a jury. Selected artworks will be exhibited in the museum and can thus be presented to the public.

Since Cultural Collisions is an interdisciplinary project, it is necessary that two teachers from different subjects (e.g. visual education and physics, technical crafts and chemistry, etc.) join forces per class: (e.g. visual education and physics, technical handicrafts and chemistry, etc.) to be available for questions from the students.
