KampusART – the Kupittaa Campus arts programme 2018–2021
Bold and versatile contemporary art, which utilizes modern technologies and is integrated in the campus architecture, is at the core of the KampusART – the Kupittaa Campus arts programme. Art will be produced for the indoor and outdoor areas of the new campus building.
Professional artists will primarily carry out the arts programme. Art students, who are being trained as professionals in public art, also take part in the programme. A selection of the artwork processes is integrated in the education and for example, students’ practical training and theses are connected to the artworks’ working groups. During the project, the pedagogy of public art is also developed and promoted.
High-quality art increases the attractiveness of the new campus and constructs the identity of the building and region. The Kupittaa Campus arts programme is coordinated by TUAS Arts Academy, and it is implemented in cooperation by TUAS and Turku Technology Properties.
