Chilean Artists and Institutions at the Ars Electronica Festival

Based on the successful cooperation since 2018, the Ministerio de las Culturas, las Artes y el Patrimonio and the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de Chile and Ars Electronica are collaborating again for the sixth time in 2023 to issue an open call to participate in this year’s Ars Electronica Festival. 

Since 2018, numerous artists, scholars, designers and students from Chile have been invited to participate in the Ars Electronica Festival and to present their works, accompanied by workshops and panels to bring attention and visibility to the themes creatives from Chile are discussing in their projects.

In 2020, during the pandemic, the form of collaborating changed into more online formats, opening the international platform of Ars Electronica also for cultural, scientific and educational institutions based in Chile by inviting them to create their own Ars Electronica Garden as part of the decentralized festival.
