Ars Electronica Center: Museum der Zukunft
The declared goal of the Ars Electronica Center in Linz is the communication of new and future technologies: it appeals to both experts and amateurs, young and old. Participate, Test and Experiment are integral elements of the exhibition concept, and together help to break down barriers and fears caused by coming face-to-face with new and unfamiliar technology. Content is obtained from a network of contacts, which connects the center to artists and academics from all subject areas and creative fields, then presented to visitors and guests at the annual Ars Electronica Festival. The Ars Electronica Center is a unique platform for digital art and media culture.
Ars Electronica Center: the building
Situated on the banks of the Danube in the heart of Linz, the modern Center was expanded according to a design by the German firm Treusch Architecture and reopened as part of the European Capital of Culture celebrations in 2009. The existing building, with its view out onto the river, was preserved, and new rooms and spaces were added, creating a contemporary and practical venue. Modern and historic elements are enclosed within a glass facade, which at night is lit up and transformed into a light sculpture. The aim is to create a continuous flow of communication between the old and the new; communication with both the city and the visitors. The new Ars Electronica Center in Linz represents the museum of the future, combining art and science.
