Prix Ars Electronica

at the Ars Electronica Festival 2021

| | |

For over three decades, the Prix Ars Electronica has been one of the world’s most coveted awards for digital media art. With the award-winning works of international artists serving as trend barometers, it provides an inspiring, up-to-date and forward-looking insight into the interface between art, technology and society.

In Linz, Austria: The Ars Electronica Festival presents the CyberArts Exhibition at OK in the OÖ Kulturquartier in Linz as one of its main shows. It showcases a selection of winning projects of this year’s Prix Ars Electronica. A selection from this year’s “Digital Musics & Sound Art” will reverberate at the SoundPark, a stage in the forest at Kepler’s Gardens, the festival’s main venue. Some of the prize-winning works can also be found in the Kepler’s Gardens Theme Exhibition.

Hybrid (Linz & Online): The Prix Forum is a platform for sharing cutting-edge art forms and their role in society through talks and discussions by this year’s Prix Ars Electronica winning artists and the jury. Formatted specially for the Festival, the award-winning works from the category “Computer Animation” are shown at the Ars Electronica Animation Festival within the Electronic Theatre – physically in Linz and virtually as well as Expanded Animation symposium. This year’s Award Ceremony is held in Linz on the Kepler’s Garden stage – of course it will also be streamed on the Ars Electronica channels, on the evening of Friday, September 10.

Online: Visit Ars Electronica online as well: Online workshops with award-winning artists give you a direct insight into their work and working methods. Live streaming of the artists’ works will also be available in collaboration with Garden Tokyo.
