The History Day conferences are dedicated to the anniversary celebrations of Ars Electronica. After 40 years in existence, we reflect on the various forms of digital media art that emerged during this time and were embedded and presented in the festival. Pioneers of artistic movements with strong impacts on the digital revolution from all around the globe will discuss outstanding ideas, practices and contributions from the intersection between art and technology.
Supported by Japan Media Arts Festival (organized by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan).
THU 5.9. | 11:00 – 12:30: The panel introduces lecturers who in recent years have devoted themselves to arts education that straddles the humanities and the natural sciences. The experiences gained through this examination of science and art find expression in an original theory as well as in the artistic practice of students, sometimes over several generations. We would like to take the time for a critical inventory that not only leads to skepticism, but also to a change in the design of cultural technology. Teachers from various disciplines will explain approaches developed from the encounter of art practice and theory at art colleges. The focus is on the adventures and visions that manifest themselves 100 years after the euphoria of the Bauhaus.
