Ars Electronica, Linz

Ars Electronica is a worldwide unique platform for art, technology and society. The focus is always on current developments and possible future scenarios and the question of how these change our lives. Together with artists, scientists, developers, designers, entrepreneurs and activists, we shed light on current developments in our digital society and speculate about their manifestations in the future. We never ask what technology can or will be able to do, but always what it should do for us. And we don’t try to adapt to technology, but we want the development of technology to be oriented towards us. Therefore, our artistic research always focuses on ourselves, our needs, our desires, our feelings.
