Art, technology, society. Since 1979, Ars Electronica has been investigating how they are connected and where they interface, scrutinizing current developments and manifestations emerging where these interactions are taking place. The ideas identified and developed here are innovative, radical and offbeat in the best sense of these terms, ideas that already influence our lives and will soon be changing our world.

… this is Ars Electronica

Ars Electronica is a cultural institution, an educational facility and an R&D lab based in Linz, Austria. Like no other institution, Ars Electronica represents a comprehensive approach in the confrontation with techno-cultural phenomena and enjoys a worldwide reputation for excellence. It is comprised of four divisions: the Ars Electronica Festival, the Prix Ars Electronica, the Ars Electronica Center and the Ars Electronica Futurelab. These four divisions mutually inspire one another, constituting a circuit of creativity: The FESTIVAL as test environment and the PRIX as competition of the best and brightest—both of them international, artistic, experimental and focused on the leading edge; the CENTER as year-round presentation & interaction platform—local, educational and entertaining; and the FUTURELAB as R&D facility—innovative, creative, endowed with strong technical competence and implementation skills, and linked up to a global network of universities, research facilities and corporations.
