Ars Electronica is not only a festival and a prize but has, since 1996, also functioned as a laboratory and a museum. What began in Linz, Austria, in 1979, as a modest experiment in art and local politics now annually sets new standards as an influential forum around the development of new-media art and in the discourse on technological culture. Richly illustrated and with numerous exploratory texts, a comprehensive account of Ars Electronicas numerous projects to date and some entertaining asides, this definitive anniversary publication offers a full retrospective of a project that has consistently focused on developing the future in the present.
