OVERTURES a north-south expedition dealing with water

04.09. - 09.09. | 10:00 - 21:00


This year’s 3rd OVERTURES project is coming up with new prospects for the way mankind deals with water.

The international project staff’s caravan set off in 2006 from Iceland, a volcanic island blessed with water aplenty, and headed south through Europe to conduct on-site research in the Alps, Turkey and Spain. At the 2008 Ars Electronica Festival, project staffers will present preliminary conclusions that can be drawn from this long-term experiment.

Ethic Works:
Under the direction of Bernd Wiemann, head of Vodafone Research, and amina with Jurij Poelchau and Christian Rauchthe 3rd installment of “Overtures” aims not only to carry on its water-themed journey of discovery but also, with its Ethic Works project, to heighten consciousness of business ethics on the part of MBA students all over the world. For the initiators of OVERTURES, this is a matter of personal responsibility in ones daily life and actions in light of new global structures. Ethic Works at Ars Electronica 2008 is meant to launch an international network of businesspeople and students.
