Earth Lab – Artists as Catalysts

Red October chocolate factory, Moscow, Russia
June 22, 2016 – September 25, 2016

The Polytechnic Museum in Moscow commissioned Ars Electronica Linz to curate the “EARTH LAB – Artists as Catalysts” exhibition, a collection of artistic projects dealing with key issues pertaining to our planet. In it, museum visitors are called upon to act as researchers and travelers on a journey of discovery along a parcours consisting of infographic sequences and experimental arrays, many of them interactive. The exhibition will run from June 21-September 25, 2016 at the former Red October chocolate factory in Moscow.

In an interview on the Ars Electronica Blog, the two curators, Natalia Fuchs and Manuela Naveau, brief us about this remarkable lab on the underground level of Moscow’s Red October chocolate factory.
