Welcome to the Ars Electronica Garden Aotearoa 2022

Ars Electronica: AOTEAROA is New Zealand’s contribution to the International Ars Electronica Festival

in 2022.

 

Ars Electronica is the world’s largest media festival, which is held annually in Linz, Austria. Placed at

the intersection of art, technology and society, the five-day event attracts over 100,000 international

visitors. Founded in 1979 the Ars Electronica Festival was designed to take the emergence of the

Digital Revolution as an occasion to explore technologies and interrogate potential futures. The

festival consists of symposia, exhibitions, performances, concerts and interventions spanning a broad

arc from speculative futuristic scenarios to analytical considerations, from provocative actionism to

philosophical debates.

 

Aotearoa has been offered a unique opportunity to partner with the main festival. For the third time,

the arc/sec Lab at the University of Auckland (UoA) and the Digital Architecture Research Alliance

(DARA) at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington are proud to contribute the Ars

Electronica: AOTEAROA. This exhibition and concert night showcases projects from New Zealand’s

artists, musicians, scientists and researchers in the form of prototypical installations, performances

and talks.
