Ars Electronica 2021 Garden Hong Kong is an extended program of Ars Electronica Festival at Linz, Austria, which was founded in 1979 as a premier international festival of art, technology and society. Over the past three decades, this world-renowned event provided an annual setting for artistic and scientific encounters with social and cultural phenomena that are the upshot of technological change. Its Symposia, exhibitions, performances and interventions carry these inquiries beyond the confines of conventional conference spaces and cultural venues and take them out into the public sphere and throughout the cityscape. Translating this spirit into action as the world tackles the Covid-19 pandemic, Ars Electronica has taken a de-centralized approach in inviting key media art institutions around the world to host their own festivals as representatives of their respective cities. 2021 Garden Hong Kong is the second iteration in which the Neuro Design Lab (supported by ACIM, SCM and Osage Art Foundation) initiated and produced online exhibitions, symposium, panel discussions, and an experimental networking party, to showcase and expand the media art scene in Hong Kong today. Please come join us on our virtual platform! More info and RSVP links can be found at www.hkgardens.com. We look forward to seeing you there!
