With Export the Ars Electronica expertise and knowledge travels the world through exhibitions and events, mentoring and residencies, talks and workshops.
40+ years working at the intersection of art and science allowed us to build a wide network of brilliant minds in the field of art, technology, and society. This network supports us today in critically reflecting on current challenges and contextualizing upcoming tendencies. Cultural practitioners as well as businesses and universities are amongst our Export partners. Together we implement a wide range of interventions all around the world.
Through Ars Electronica Export we are excited to share our experiences with you and access our networks’ expertise for responding to your questions and ideas — whether it is through consulting, conception or production for exhibitions, screenings or performances, for new forms of residencies, or for general developments of new formats.

Artist: S()fia Braga – The Forehead Vulva Channeling Research is a speculative transhumanist research which focuses on developing advanced studies on the human body’s potential to reach lifelong emotional well-being via a re-calibration of pleasure-centers by channeling hidden organs through the use of specialized technologies. The purpose of opening the Forehead Vulva is to bring the body to an uninhibited state, and thereby transform it, rediscovering new potentials that humans are still not aware of. – Ars Electronica Exhibition, opening April 04
