THU September 8-MON September 12, 2016
FIS StageCredit: Florian Voggeneder

On the Future Innovators Stage (FIS) in POSTCITY, the staff of innovative projects will present work that’s already in the implementation stage. One example is injecting art into the EU’s future technology program—that is, to turn FET–Future and Emerging Technologies into FEAT–Future Emerging Art & Technology. A new form of conference is being staged in cooperation with Knowledge Capital (JP)—a Kotatsu [Japanese: heatable table]. There’ll also be a presentation of New Tendencies, Armin Medosch’s (AT) new English-language book published by MIT Press (US).
