Die Gemeinwohl-Ökonomie, das Wirtschaftsmodell der Zukunft

Christian Felber (AT)
3.9. 18:00

Christian Felber (AT) is an author, freelance journalist and speaker on social and economic issues. He deals with how we organize our economy and which
economic goals we pursue thereby. Should everything be oriented on the best interests of small groups or should the economy enable all people to live and thrive? This speech will be followed by an open World Cafe Workshop on the same subject conducted by Knut Berndorfer and Johannes Heiml.

A cooperation of VHS Linz and Südwind OÖ.


Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg

2. 9. – 7. 9.

The PROBEN (Trials) exhibition features objects designed and produced between 1981 and 2009 by design students at the HFBK-University of Fine Arts Hamburg. All are fully functional, full scale model vehicles—for example, sleds, concept cars, mopeds and scooters, a bicycle powered by a cordless screwdriver and an ultra-light long-distance cruiser propelled by rubber bands. Here, the accent is on bringing forth an actual object, the direct implementation of an idea in the form of a prototype.

Stop Recycling. Start Repairing.


Platform21 was a design platform based in Amsterdam (NL), aiming to positively influence the relationship between user and product. Through their projects they question today’s society, reveal the making process, and stimulate dialogue and the sharing of creative knowledge. During the Ars Electronica 2010 they will show examples of their past work and offer you the chance to learn about some of their creative repair methods.

Informations about the daily program are available on site.

Coordination: Moetoesingi Schmidt (NL), Arne Hendriks (NL)

Chair Repair
Chairs are the icons of the design world. No wonder that the repair of chairs, in all its manifestations became a central aspect of the presentation of Platform21 = Repairing. For Ars Electronica we make a selection of the best repaired chairs we could find and invite designers and artists in Austria, as well as the public, to add their own.
Exhibited chairs by (among others) Barbara Alves, Rachel Griffith, Harco Rutgers, 5.5 Designers, Guy Keulemans,…

Helen Klopper (NL)
Woolfiller is an invention of Heleen Klopper, an Amsterdam-based designer. It repairs holes and hides stains in woolen jumpers, cardigans, jackets and more by using the specific characters of wool. The fibres of wool contain minuscule scales which open up when they are pricked with a felt needle. The open scales bind with each other and will not be separated, not even in the laundry. It is simple, sustainable and satisfying, a new solution for an old problem.

Smash Repair
Guy Keulemans (AU) & Martijn Dijkhuizen (NL)
“Smash Repair” is a generative repair system for creating form. Using a basic construction template, structures are smashed and repaired repeatedly, building up material in places that require it for strength. The process, analogous to the growth of bones and tree branches when self-repairing, is a method for exploring the function and aesthetics of materials used for repair.

Bison Kintsugi
Lotte Dekker (NL)
Designer Lotte Dekker developed a new way of gluing porcelain based on kintsugi, an old Japanese technique from the 15th century in which porcelain is repaired with gold leaf. It is an extremely time-consuming, expensive method. Dekker found Bison glue to be the perfect Western variant for making beautiful yet simple repairs.

Jan Vormann (DE)
“I want to repair every broken wall in the whole world with Dispatchwork. Why not? I think it is a fun approach towards conceiving the decay that time brings along.” Jan Vormann uses Lego for fixing cracks, holes and crumbling corners. He fills them with the plastic bricks, calling the practice Dispatchwork. He already left a colorful trail of repairs in Berlin, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, New York and many other cities around the world.

Shoe Goo repair station
Arne Hendriks (NL)
Shoe Goo is a waterproof adhesive which is perfect to mend the soles of worn out shoes. The product is well known among skaters to repair their destroyed skate shoes.

Chair Repair

15:30 – 17:30 Tape the Chair
17:30 – 18:00 Jury Selection
18:15 Award Ceremony

Jury: Arne Hendriks (Platform 21), Horst Hörtner (Ars Electronica), Nicoletta Blacher (Ars Electronica)

Hey, nobody likes people who are stuck up! Except when they’re creative spirits who can take old chairs, add duct tape, and transform them into pieces of designer furniture. Platform21 will be demonstrating how that works at this year‘s Ars Electronica. And you’re cordially invited to get into the adhesive act too at a Tape the Chair workshop. At its conclusion, participants’ works will be evaluated and—who knows?—your sticky fingers might be the ones clutching the grand prize! So: Stop Recycling, Start Repairing!

Desire for future, change, and how to admit failure

If it’s “too late to be a pessimist” (Yann Arthus-Bertrand), then how can we remain optimistic and sustain the urge to bring forth a future worth living? We’re currently experiencing numerous major miscarriages—environmental catastrophes, financial crises, seeming endless border disputes. At this symposium, experts in a wide array of fields will elaborate on and illustrate how to acknowledge errors and to use them as a source of motivation to implement change. The ambitious goal here is to mobilize oneself and others in order to courageously assume responsibility for a better future.

quelle 01

2.9. – 7.9.

Access to healthy drinking water is a basic right, but also a technical and social challenge. Accordingly, experts in technology, biology, medicine, art and design collaborated on the development of the Quelle 01 (Spring 01) drinking water purification system. It takes local tap water, physically and chemically purifies it, and delivers water as if from a natural spring. The assignment was to achieve consummate drinking water quality, and to use local sources of water worldwide in order to avoid unnecessary transportation, cleaning and recycling of bottles. The outcome is to bring technology, nature and life into harmony in a way that has great future promise. Three of these devices will be exhibited at Ars Electronica.
