Ars Electronica 2020 - in Keplers Garden | Linz | Austria

Festival for Art, Technology and Society

Ars Electronica 2020 -In Kepler's Gardens
A global journey mapping the 'new' world

Ars Electronica 2020 is taking place not despite but because of Corona. From September 9 to 13, the Festival for Art, Technology and Society will simply ask the question, what to do now?

And for the first time, this will be the theme not only in Linz – in the city center and on the beautiful JKU campus – but at 120 locations around the globe. Come with us on this trip around the world in 5 days!

 A journey in which it is not we who set out to travel, but our ideas and projects, which span a global network in which we gather to discuss what needs to be done.

Best of Ars Electronica 2020 | 7 Highlights

The Welcome Chorus / Yuri Suzuki (JP)

The Welcome Chorus is an interactive installation comprised of 12 interactive horns situated on the Southern Terrace beside the entrance to Turner Contemporary, inviting visitors into the gallery space. As a collaborative work, it utilizes Artificial Intelligence to create a sonic experience for the visitors.

There are two ways to engage with the Welcoming Choir. First, with local musicians' help, lyrics and melodies were created at workshops to generate the sound library. These were then fed into the AI for output at the Turner Contemporary. The second method is to encourage visitors to speak into the sculptures, which will generate musical feedback from the AI.

Speculating about the Future / Centre for Fine Arts (BOZAR) (BE)


This project is part of the Ars Electronica Garden in Brussels. Through collaborations between art, science, technology, and artificial intelligence, we speculate about the future, as we look for new opportunities for a better future. Science, Technology and Arts form a nexus with an extraordinarily high potential for creative innovation. The role of artists is no longer just about propagating scientific and technological knowledge and skills among the general public but much more as a kind of catalyst that can inspire and trigger innovative processes.

Who Am I / H3 Studio (RO)

This project is part of the Ars Electronica Garden Bucharest.

Who Am I? is a performative art installation that traces the relationship between a robot and the human body, between programmed and spontaneous, reproducible and irreproducible. 
The project takes the myth of Pygmalion as a starting point and investigates the relationship between creator/creation and their perception in a world of AI. Who Am I? is based on the interaction between human and robot, by mirroring the relationship between natural and artificial as a deep meditation on human nature.
