University of Arts Linz, Austria
The "Kunstschule" of the city of Linz was founded in 1947. It was conceived as an explicit statement to signify dissociation from the previous art policy of the Nazi era, and to mark its intellectual and practical association with the Bauhaus ideas of the Weimar Republic in the 1920s and 1930s. Both of these founding ideas were to shape its succeeding institutions and have prevailed to this day. In 1973 at the initiative of the city of Linz and of the regional authorities of the province of Upper Austria in particular - the Kunstschule became an aca-demic institution at university level ("Hochschule für künstlerische und industrielle Gestaltung")
