On campus, art is everywhere. Most striking of all are the artworks, created by major international artists that were incorporated into the university’s “new” architecture, which was built in 2002.
The Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft commissioned five artworks from Šejla Kamerić, Lawrence Weiner, Heimo Zobernig, Valentin Oman and Viktor Rogy, in cooperation with the University Cultural Centre (UNIKUM), for the extensions to the library and South Wing. The commission was curated by art project manager Martin Fritz.
Over the past two decades, a number of acquisitions and donations of art objects have also been made, together with temporary loans from the federal art-lending library. You can take a virtual art tour here.
