(Linz, May 7, 2019) From artificial intelligence, neuro-bionics, autonomous systems and robotics to genetic engineering, biotechnology and far-reaching global change – the new Ars Electronica Center will be dedicated to a wide range of brand-new topics from May 27 under the motto “Compass – Navigating the Future”. Having so far opened a glimpse into the future, the Ars Electronica Center will now serve as a compass, companion and orientation aid – in a world that has never been so complex as it is today. At Deep Space LIVE on Thursday evening, May 9, 2019, Christoph Kremer, Head of Ars Electronica Center and Kristina Maurer, Producer Exhibitions Ars Electronica Center, will provide first insights into the reorientation of the Ars Electronica Center. Start is at 7 pm.
Ars Electronica Center
With the Ars Electronica Center, Ars Electronica created a year-round platform for presentation and creation in 1996. On the occasion of Linz 2009 European Capital of Culture, the Ars Electronica Center was was architecturally enhanced and reoriented with respect to both content and presentation.expanded and redesigned. In going about this, the principle of interaction was expanded into comprehensive participation. In designing exhibits and getting material across, the accent is placed on the shared presence of artistic and scientific pursuits. The substantive focus is on the life sciences. Ten years later, the Ars Electronica Center is reinventing itself once again: from the end of May 2019, “Compass – Navigating the Future” will offer a guide to man-made systems in the 21st century.
