The most important festival in the world dedicated to the interconnections between art, technology and society is adapting its format to the worldwide health emergency we are experiencing.
Its adoption of a de-localised, multi-location format has materialised as 120 ‘gardens’ in cities around the world, which join the main venue of Linz in Austria both physically and virtually.
Together, these locations form a cosmogony that articulates a map of art and international creativity relating to technology, science, research and experimentation, as indicated by the title of this 41st edition of the festival: In Kepler’s Gardens. A global journey mapping the ‘new’ world.
Ars Electronica Garden Barcelona is organised by OFFF, Institut Ramon Llull, Hangar, NewArtFoundation, BEEP Collection, UOC/ISEA Barcelona and will premiere the following activities:
