In 2004 Ars Electronica created Ars Electronica Export, a program dedicated to the production of exhibitions, workshops and education programs for and together with partners from all over the world. The partners are institutions involved in art and culture, science, and education as well as private sector companies. Since then, several dozen of such projects have been realized, and each one has been specially configured together with the hosting partner with the aim to involve local as well as international artists. The activities of Ars Electronica Export play an important role in maintaining and extending the range of our vital network of artists and creative collaborators.
The Ars Electronica Animation Festival has been garnering rave reviews from moviegoers ever since its premiere. Every year Ars Electronica is working together with the Austrian Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs to make a selection of outstanding submissions for Prix Ars Electronica prize consideration available to educational institutions, film festivals and cultural organizations.
For the first time, Ars Electronica was invited to present innovative technologies in the framework of a unique exhibition at the ITU Telecom World 2013 from November 19th to 22nd in Bangkok. From 3D printing to robotics, from creative new energy sources to wearable tech, the exhibition „The Lab“ is about experiencing and questioning future technology and its impact.
The Spanish foundation Zaragoza ciudad del conocimiento (Saragossa City of Knowledge) received support from Ars Electronica this past year in launching its PASEO PROJECT, a joint effort in Saragossa to discover creative new ideas for communication in and with a city. The first Paseo Project honoree is Florian Tuercke (DE) for his New Creative Model to Experience the City.
In collaboration with Lourdes Fernández, director of the cultural institution that just underwent a Philippe Starck makeover, Ars Electronica Linz GmbH has assembled a showcase of projects that endeavor to transcend conventional boundaries in an effort to inspire those who behold them.
For the fourth time, Ars Electronica Linz GmbH has partnered up with VW to create an exhibition for the VW Automobil Forum Unter den Linden in Berlin. This time around the theme is “Like A Second Nature”, it’s about what’s natural and artificial, about what we create and what is created by the nature around us, but also about the collission points and our perception of what we think is real and what’s not.
In the framework of “Ars Electronica Creative Cloud” ten workshops were held in Knowledge Capital Osaka together with artists and representatives of Ars Electronica.
