Every year artists from all over the world come to u19 CREATE YOUR WORLD Festival to show us their ideas, try them and also get inspired to do new Projects. Interaction artist Rebecca Gischel shows the installation Global Sounds – here she writes about her works and the ideas behind them.
Once again this year, the young honorees in the Prix Ars Electronica’s u19 category will decide for themselves how their prizewinning projects will be displayed at the Ars Electronica Festival, September 7-11 2017. They’re coming up with some initial ideas at an exhibition design workshop. The plans emerging now will become a reality by September.
September 7-11, 2017, POSTCITY Linz will once again morph into a sprawling playground of media artists from all over the world. The theme of this year’s Ars Electronica Festival is Artificial Intelligence – The Other I. We recently sat down with Festival Director Martin Honzik to get a sneak preview.
The Linz-based artists’ collective Time’s Up builds walk-through worlds, physical narratives, in which every object tells a story. At Ars Electronica Festival September 7-11, 2017, festivalgoers will be able to experience one of them: “Turnton Docklands.” We talked to Time’s Up about this mix of environmental dystopia, social utopia and disturbing future scenario.
The Ars Electronica Festival is dedicating an entire day to sampling organic delicacies of the highest quality in POSTCITY Linz. Once again this year, BIO AUSTRIA is staging a farmer’s market amidst all the media art. Here, BIO AUSTRIA’s Marlene Wolfsteiner tells us about all the healthy goodies festivalgoers will be enjoying, and why organic farming is so essential.
Dealing with complex issues calls for marshalling insights and skills from numerous fields, cultures and perspectives. Excellence in accomplishing this is precisely what the European Commission aims to honor with the STARTS Prize. Here, we present 2017’s best projects and what the jury’s statement has to say about them. Many will be featured in a special exhibition running at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz.
