Alchemists of the Future

The DNA of the Ars Electronica Futurelab in the eighth and final episode of the 25th Anniversary Series

| | |

The inadequacy of present social, political and economic systems is evident in every corner of the world. How can we create a model for new, poetic systems that considers our ethical demands? How can we ensure that cutting-edge technologies and business models are not just another contribution to existing problems, but rather create a techno sphere that is sustainable, trustworthy, and humane?
Alchemists of the Future provides a peek into the DNA of the Ars Electronica Futurelab, whose members have been considering these questions for 25 years. Together with author Andreas J. Hirsch, it analyzes the network of people and ideas for this purpose. The resulting book Alchemists of the Future. Ars Electronica Futurelab the First 25 Years and Beyond will be available in bookstores worldwide, on our website and at all Infodesks during the Ars Electronica Festival.
In this context, also this eighth and final episode in the lab’s 25th Anniversary Series offers a glimpse to the future, and far beyond. Meet the future alchemists behind the innovative concept and remarkable success of the Ars Electronica Futurelab on Futurelab Day.
Further episodes have been published in this series: Virtual Worlds, Poetic Systems, Creative (Artificial) Intelligence, and Computation & Beyond, The Art of Swarms and Art Thinking.
