Ars Electronica

General Information

Year of Foundation:  1979


Art, technology, society. Since 1979, Ars Electronica has searched for connections and overlaps, causes and effects. The ideas that are processed here are innovative, radical, and eccentric - but in the best sense. They affect our everyday lives, our lives, every day.


The festival as a test environment, the Prix as a competition for the best minds, the center as a year-round presentation and interaction platform, and the Futurelab as a research and development cell will extend their senses towards science and research, art and technology. These 4 pillars of Ars Electronica inspire each other and put visions to the test in a very unique creative cycle. It's an entangled organism that constantly reinvents itself.
