From April 20th to 22nd 2012, the jury of Prix Ars Electronica 2012 will meet in Linz to decide on the winners of the Golden Nicas 2012. The weekend will be interesting, fascinating, but also tiring. Hundreds of projects want to be evaluated and rated, a daunting task. To give you a look behind the scenes, jurors of Prix 2012 will introduce their work during the next couple of weeks on this blog. Liu Yan, juror from China and a member of the jury for the third time, will make the start.
Two days before the start of the Ars Electronica Festival, the research vehicle Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion made a stop on the main square of Linz for an European premiere.
We are all astronauts. The new exhibition “Spaceship Earth” at the Ars Electronica Center in collaboration with the ESA is dedicated to the fascinating and revealing satellite images of our planet.
In less than 72 hours we go, the Ars Electronica Festival 2015. We have been looking at the PostCity, the central location this year.
Through Myriads Salvatore Iaconesi and Oriana Persico want to establish a peer-to-peer ethnography of a city: a diffused participatory observation in which the myriads of public micro-histories become a commons and are performed through art, education, citizen engagement, tactical usage, starting from margins.
The 2015 Ars Electronica Festival kicks off on September 3, 2015. Whoever wants to take it all in and benefit from expert commentary along the way should definitely join the Openings & Introductory Parcours led by Ars Electronica Artistic Director Gerfried Stocker.
