Digital transformation requires and at the same time generates societal transformation. Arts & Design education, research & innovation as practiced at the Zurich University of the Arts fosters critical thinking and creative capabilities alike. With our approach we seek to catalyze the emergence of new professional fields at the interfaces of the arts, design, technology and innovation - providing novel approaches for solving societal challenges. The digital transformation widens our field of action, offers new possibilities to leverage on know-how and enables inspiring public interaction.

Prof. Dr. Thomas D. Meier, President of Zurich University of the Arts - ZHdK
