With its specific orientation and the long-standing continuity it has displayed since 1979, Ars Electronica is an internationally unique platform for digital art and media culture consisting of the following four divisions:

Ars Electronica – Festival for Art, Technology and Society
Prix Ars Electronica – International Competition for CyberArts
Ars Electronica Center – Museum of the Future
Ars Electronica Futurelab – Laboratory for Future Innovations


The essence of the internationally renowned Ars Electronica Festival is interdisciplinarity and an open encounter of international experts from the arts and sciences with a broad audience of highly diverse backgrounds and interests. Annually since 1979, the Festival has featured a lineup of symposia, exhibitions, performances and events designed to further an artistic and scientific confrontation with the social and cultural phenomena that are the consequences of technological change.


As the world’s premier cyberarts competition, the Prix Ars Electronica has been a forum for
artistic creativity and innovation since 1987. It is the trend barometer in an ever-expanding and increasingly diversified world of media art.
Thanks to its annually recurring nature, its international scope and the incredible variety of the works submitted for prize consideration, the enormous Prix Ars Electronica Archive provides a detailed look at the development of media art and a feel for its openness and diversity.

  The Ars Electronica Center opened in 1996 as a prototype of a “Museum of the Future.”
Its mission is to utilize interactive forms of mediation to facilitate the general public’s encounter with virtual reality, digital networks and modern media. A focus on issues at the interface of media art,
new technologies and social developments characterize the Center’s innovative exhibitions.
Beyond this, the Ars Electronica Center is the permanent base and thus the organizational foundation
of Ars Electronica’s regional and international activities.

The Futurelab is a model of a new kind of media art laboratory in which artistic and technological innovations engender reciprocal inspiration. The lab?s teams bring together a wide variety of specialized skills; their approach is characterized by interdisciplinarity and international networking. The Futurelab?s wide-ranging activities include designing and engineering exhibitions, creating artistic installations, as well as pursuing collaborative research with universities and joint ventures with private sector associates.

The Ars Electronica Futurelab: Come Grow with Us!

We’re currently experiencing tremendous growth in demand for our services in connection with a wide variety of major international projects.

The upshot of this is the ongoing creation of numerous new positions on our staff.
The salient feature of the projects being pursued by the Ars Electronica Futurelab is their positioning
at the nexus of art and technology. In every one of these undertakings, the Futurelab’s function as mediator at the interface of art, technology and society is made palpably evident.

Our young, international staff in Linz works in small teams on exhibition projects, large-scale events such as music visualizations (see, for instance, http://rheingold) and R&D assignments in Austria and abroad.

Our strong commitment to an interdisciplinary approach to every job we do is a constant source of new challenges for all team members in every project phase from conceptualization to installation.
Our activities take us all over the world and to almost every continent.
