“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


Working in the Ars Electronica Futurelab does not only mean envisioning, creating and reflecting, but also diligently documenting, formulating and illustrating. Because what happens here, behind the LED-lit facades of the Ars Electronica Futurelab, must be viable for the future and all over the world, that is for sure.

As Content Manager, Birgit is responsible for the strategic planning and production of text, image and video contributions for the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s website, social media and Ars Electronica blog.

Her passion for innovation and shaping the future, her fascination for new trends and tools and her enjoyment of good stories have led the educated photographer and former teacher for art and new media from the darkroom to the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The new member of 2020 acquired her technical and content-related background in sitespeed, SEO and usability during a diploma course in online marketing and communication management. After an exciting rotation through the dazzling world of advertising, she has now arrived in the future.
