|Art in Dialogue – combining art and science at the MCI|
A new series of events has been established at the MCI to promote a dialogue between artists and students, starting with a talk and workshop run by Patricia Karg.
The fact that MCI Management Center Innsbruck is a particularly creative university has been demonstrated often enough. Frequent awards and successful results in polls and rankings confirm the MCI’s strong position in the international university scene. The focus is on excellence in teaching, global networking with prestigious partner universities, and a strong industry orientation and practical relevance. The MCI also offers students and graduates an international language center, extensive alumni and career services, innovative startup support, and a full and varied calendar of events including interesting symposiums, forums, excursions, platform discussions, etc.
Now the Entrepreneurial School® has opened up another attractive avenue, inviting artists to enter into a dialogue with students. The “Art in Dialogue” series is a platform for student encounter and interaction with artists representing a wide range of styles and media. The MCI is confident that stimulating contact with outstanding artists will light the students’ own fire for creativity, reflection and innovation and act as a catalyst for unconventional attitudes, approaches and solutions. Thinking outside the box, promoting new ideas, and building bridges between business, academia and art – that brings added content for the Entrepreneurial School® and added value in terms of personal development for students. This new initiative at the MCI has been made possible through the generous support of Innsbruck Airport and Hypo Tirol Bank.
The première in the Art in Dialogue series was on 19 June 2012. Beate Palfrader, the member of the Tyrolean government with the education and culture portfolio, and Dr. Patrizia Moser, the retiring city councillor with responsibility for the arts, introduced the artist Patricia Karg, who then gave a fascinating insight into her art and works and also ran a student workshop on the creation of book objects.
