Not only Czech students rebelling against the lack of funding for universities. Last week took to the streets of the capital of Austria University commercial art students (Universität für Angewandte Kunst) and draped forty monuments of Vienna's Ringstras­se.

Austrian students chose this way to protest against the curtailment of state subsidies to universities in particular artistic interests – only „their“ university would miss next year, nearly 2, 5 million Euros. Students and teachers of the most famous Austrian art schools are worried about its future serviceability. Since the University educates artists of European standards, it needs adequate financial security as well, if she wants to maintain the standard of teaching. Lack of money is not only threatening the creative work in workshops but also an international guest teachers, who played the major role the university's his­tory – are taught including celebrities like Vivienne Westwood and Karl Lagerfeld.

The veiled cultural heritage forms the students reaction to the government's de­cision – that the government decided to invest in art means that you need. Student Association wants the government to announce in this way, the sign of the presence of culture and arts are not only crowds of tourists, but the artist is also necessary to promote where they are brought up – on campus.

Identical in spirit forge students protest program called Can you lose all love for the art? (Kunst verzichten?), Which addressed not only government but also the entire Austrian society. The program is not just a restoration of subsidies to art schools, but first raise the cultural awareness that, as students say, was always associated with Austria.
