1. Ars Electronica 2001 - Conferences
....................................................
Which constellations, what factors are determining the art of tomorrow,
where it will happen, who will be doing it and with whom? These questions
are at the focal point of Ars Electronica 2001: Let's take a look at the
thing formerly known as art!
The theoretical encounter with the Festival theme will be presented in a new
format this year: A symposium, conferences, panels on virtual reality and
the Prix Ars Electronica Forum make up a full calendar of events, an
overarching theory-network spanning the entire festival week.
