Facade Festival

2. 9. – 11. 9.

Ars Electronica is collaborating with the Media Facades Festival Europe 2010 to present a fascinating array of art projects on the façade of the Ars Electronica Center and on the Tabakfabrik grounds during this year’s festival. The accent is on fostering a process of exchange among a diversified group of cities and countries and initiating an intercultural dialog about the medium of urban screens and media façades as well as the utilization of new communications technologies. Connected Cities infrastructure enables participating artists to propagate their projects in public spaces and to present them to large European audiences in Joint Broadcasting Events. The media facades will be transformed into local stages and open a global window for cultural and societal processes to create a dialogue and connect the local public virtually with the other places throughout Europe.

Tabakfabrik, Facades of the inner courtyard

Though they’re separated by thousands of kilometers, they can collaboratively create with light and shadow, color and contrast as if they shared an atelier. They—four of Europe’s most interesting visual arts projects—will be working together with the Ars Electronica Futurelab in conjunction with the Media Facades Festival Europe 2010 to immerse the Tabakfabrik’s inner courtyard in a new light.
