The Prix Forums furnish an extraordinary opportunity to festivalgoers—a chance to meet the human beings behind the works of art. Here, you can enjoy up-close-and-personal encounters with the artists honored by the Prix Ars Electronica. The Prix Forum IV will be dedicated to Jasia Reichardt, this year’s Visionary Pioneers of Media Art laureate. The prominent art critic and exhibition curator made headlines worldwide with a trailblazing 1968 exhibition at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts. “Cybernetic Serendipity” was the title of this much-discussed show in which, instead of human artists, the spotlight was suddenly on computers, machines and algorithms as “artists.”
The Prix Forums are produced by the European Digital Art and Science Network.
