| 25 Years of Looking to the Future

Founded in 1996, the Ars Electronica Futurelab looks back on 25 years of programming. At the interface between art and science, it is a hybrid of studio and laboratory.

Since 1979 ARS ELECTRONICA has tracked and analyzed the digital revolution and its multiple impacts. The focus has always been on processes and trends combining art, technology, and society. Results of this artistic and scientific research can be seen in the form of an annual festival in Linz, Austria, where a five-day-long program involves conferences, podium discussions, workshops, exhibitions, performances, interventions, and concerts. The festival is planned, organized, and executed in collaboration with artists and scientists from around the world. A variety of controversial futuristic themes are always the center of attention.
