It's about trying out things

In this interview, Gerfried Stocker explains why it takes more than virtual meetings to get people talking and how the Ars Electronica Festival is trying to become sustainable and resource-conserving.

Change is needed when there is no way out

From the hopelessness of the climate crisis to the thinking space of art - in this conversation with Gerfried Stocker, we take a closer look at the theme of the 2022 Ars Electronica Festival.

The Invention of Sustainability

New technologies have increased the pace of consumption of our resources - but even the raw material wood used to bring problems. (German language)
