The Ars Electronica Festival has opened its doors in the Austrian city of Linz. Its aim is to tackle important and relevant questions on the future, with a focus on art, technology and society.
This year’s theme is artificial intelligence… And there are robots everywhere, with the machines even becoming artists themselves.
Gerfried Stocker is the festival’s artistic director.
“Art forces us to think beyond borders, to question what the industry tells us we can do with technology. Is that really everything or can we do more?“ he asked.
