UNESCO City of Media Arts – This honor awarded in December 2014 added Linz’s name to a prestigious list that includes Lyon, Dakar, Tel Aviv and several other cities where computing, digitization and art are blazing new trails. Ars Electronica has been tracking and exhibiting leading-edge developments based on and inspired by art and technology for 37 years now. In the mid-1990s, the establishment of the Ars Electronica Center created a Museum of the Future totally focused on new media, their diverse forms and their social impact. In this context, media art is an essential phenomenon, and one that we’d like to showcase during this weekend.
