Scenes & Structures

As the first festival of its kind, Ars Electronica has attracted a great deal of attention from the very beginning. This enthusiastic reception can be attributed to the festival’s pioneering role, one it still plays today, as well as to its function as an exchange for ideas and projects whose impact extends beyond the scope of the festival itself. Ars Electronica has continuously offered other festivals, initiatives and media art labs a setting in which to present their capabilities to a wider audience. Not as a program with a defined thematic structure, but rather as an open stage – as Scenes and Structures.
