||Out of Control
Ars Electronica 91
Ars Electronica '91 picked out the consequences of technological progress, the aspect of the dangers implicated in the increasing mechanization of life and the getting-out-of-control of technological systems as its central themes. During the festival, projects were launched dealing with global and individual disasters, environmental damage and natural disasters as a reaction to these developments.
"Out of Control" was not an aesthetically "beautiful" festival, but aggressive, provocative, critical, disturbing.
