2018 Ars Electronica Festival: Error – The Art of Imperfection
From Artificial Intelligence to Social Intelligence
Ars Electronica is once again summoning hundreds of artists, scientists, engineers, designers, technologists, entrepreneurs and social activists worldwide to gather in Linz September 6-10 to jointly investigate current technological and social interdependencies and their potential future manifestations. All of this will take place in public and together with people from all walks of life, since a defining aim of Ars Electronica is to take leave of the classic premises devoted to culture and scholarship and to stage an internationally unique festival of art, technology and society amidst the public sphere in downtown Linz.

Logistics is the basis of globalization and at the same time a work reality for many thousands of people in the Halle / Leipzig region. It organizes the flow of goods, information and people and at the same time decisively determines the tact and rhythm of our time. Where logistics builds on infrastructures of deindustrialized economic and living spaces, the prosperity expectations linked to them become a promise. Here, the production of movement replaces the production of goods and content; Here she shapes landscapes, determines regions and shapes people's everyday lives. Against the background of globalized trade and digital networking, these developments are taking place in parallel in various places around the world, providing information about both historical and political connections.
The international positions of the exhibition as well as the film and performance program place the festival theme in a global context. The colloquium enables an open discourse on the trends in logistics and expands the scope of the festival for speculation about future procedures. Guided excursions to regional locations and a workshop week with students from different art colleges broaden the discussion on site. The festival will be accompanied by a bilingual catalog with contributions by international authors.
