The Prix Forums furnish an extraordinary opportunity to festivalgoers—a chance to meet the human beings behind the works of art. Here, you can enjoy up-close-and-personal encounters with the artists honored by the Prix Ars Electronica and the jurors who made the selections. In formal speeches and casual conversations, you can find out more about the works, the ideas behind them, and the challenges the artists responded to. The Interactive Art+ Forum will elaborate of interactive works and the expanded interpretation of interactive art.
The Prix Forums are produced by the European Digital Art and Science Network.
