Creating the Future

A Brief History of Ars Electronica 1979-2019

Cover for "Creating the Future"

Description

2019 Ars Electronica celebrated its 40th anniversary. With Creating the Future, Andreas J. Hirsch tells on 320 pages how an idea became one of the world's most important platforms for art, technology and society. It is the story of a vision that has been driven forward over decades by different people with passion, imagination and consistency. "The theme of the 'future' runs through the entire history of Ars Electronica," says Andreas J. Hirsch. "From the outset, the focus was not on a naive euphoria about the future or an enthusiasm for technology, but on a critical approach, a look at the social effects of technology. Creating the Future therefore contains something like an 'exit from self-culpable immaturity'. This self-empowerment characterizes the core idea of Ars Electronica - a very enlightening thought that is highly topical."
