We see it, we feel it and we hear it: our world is changing. And we are changing with it. We see the urgency with which the future of our planet — as we know it — rests on our shoulders. But how do we manage to become active here and create space to move forward? What do we need to do so that we can leave behind fear and, with it, frightened rigidity, so that we can confidently and respectfully take the next steps towards a benevolent society and support the healthy functioning of the Earth’s ecosystems?
LOOPS OF WISDOM is not a solution but a possible guide to action: a well-conceived set of inspiring exhibitions, presentations, performances, interventions, workshops and lab settings and a discursive platform, all by students and faculty of the University of Art and Design Linz on the occasion of the Ars Electronica Festival 2021.
This highlight tour will take you on a journey through the LOOPS OF WISDOM exhibitions, as well as the exhibition of our partner university Zurich Academy of the Arts, along with some of the best talks and lectures of the Academy of Thoughts, and some backstory about how the Sound Campus has evolved in its second year.
