Bear feeding in BioLab

Yes, that’s right, we have bears at the Ars Electronica Center – lots of them, in fact! (suitable for the whole family)

The “Bear Feeding” takes place in the exhibition area of the Ars Electronica Labs on level -1 of the Ars Electronica Center every Tuesday and Saturday from 16:00 to 17:00.

Our water bears, called tardigrades or tardigrades, are particularly interesting scientifically because they can cope with very adverse conditions. To survive in space, they don’t even need an astronaut suit. We naturally want to nurture these little animals with their superpowers so that they grow and thrive.
