2023 Ars Electronica

Präsentation des Jahresprojektes Aaron’s Law bei Ars Electronica 2023

The Ars Electronica Festival has accompanied the ongoing digitalization of our lives since 1979. It poses questions about the political, social, ecological, and economic consequences, and speculates on the future forms that technological progress will take. Embedded in a worldwide network of artists, scientists, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and activists, Ars Electronica constantly advances this research – both within and together with the widest possible public.

Whether with exhibitions, conferences, concerts, performances, or interventions – the goal has always been to push forward a discourse and promote inclusive and sustainable visions of the future.

All three parts of this exhibition: (AV-lounge, Insight:Aaron, Why I am not Gay) deal with transformation and metamorphosis by tracing Aaron’s remarkable path of life: “Insight:Aaron” by Schubert Theater Wien shows the evolution of an analogue puppet into a digital 3D scan; “Why I Am Not Gay” by Günther Friesinger features four AI-generated images of a portrait of Aaron Swartz; and the net:art coordination center presents the progress of its project series using videos and podcasts - for example, the documentation of mur.at’s international Worklab 2023.
