The Ars Electronica Center’s exhibition that debuted on January 2, 2009 is focusing on fields in which the most massive and controversial innovative thrust is now in the process of emerging: the life sciences. Hand in hand with rapid-fire technological advances that are producing computers offering steadily increasing performance and higher-resolution imaging, these research disciplines also explore some compelling relationships – resulting in findings that challenge our conventional view of humanity and man’s place in the world. The Ars Electronica Center is spotlighting these “New Images of Humankind.” Simultaneously atelier and lab, the new facility attests to the affinity between art and science, and to our timeless fascination with our own kind. The commitment to creativity and productivity is stronger than ever. The core is the 1,000-m2 Main Gallery, a space in which artists and scientists, school kids and college students, parents and children can experiment, work and play. This spectacular exhibition doesn’t put the accent strictly on leading-edge technological developments; instead, it concentrates on the concrete question: What’s the impact on me and my life?
