Ars Electronica is marking this anniversary with an exhibition in the Center’s Lobby: “35 Years of ORF TELETEXT.” In addition to a review of this medium’s highlights over the past 35 years, the show features selected works from the two most recent International Teletext Art Festivals: ITAF 2013 and 2014.
