LEONARDO LASER LINZ – Die Gartenlaube / Garden Gazebo

| | |

Linz, Kunstuniverstität Linz, Hauptplatz

Hosts: Christa Sommerer and Fabricio Lamoncha

In September 2021, Linz is joining the Leonardo Art & Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) network. This international program brings together artists, scientists, scholars and the general public for inspiring presentations and conversations. The LEONARDO LASER LINZ, hosted by the Interface Cultures department at the University of Art and Design Linz, will be held during the Ars Electronica 2021 Festival.

For the LASER launch event, more sustainable ways of living, local and global environmental protection and artistic and scientific developments for a “climate-modern” future will be given a special interdisciplinary focus. In a modernized “Gartenlaube”, themes such as Climate-Care, Climate-Digital and Climate-Social (as proposed by Christoph Thun-Hohenstein) will be debated and discussed. Other specific topics will be presented, including Interspecies Collaboration, The Mind of Plants, Herbal Pedagogy and, finally, an exploration and celebration of artistic and folk wisdom, to bring us all together for a “Gartenlaube Waltz”.
