Prix-Jury 2006

Ars Electronica Linz & ORF Oberösterreich

In 2006, the Prix Ars Electronica is presenting its twentieth edition. Over the years, the alliance of art, science, industry and commercial interests has rapidly evolved onwards and upwards. Internet, mobility, mixed reality, gaming and realtime are only some of the keywords denoting the state of the art. And it lies in the nature of things that artists worldwide, outside the mainstream of commercial offers and solutions, are taking on individual positions in this mobile, wireless, networked media world, while expositing and questioning power structures, political strategies and ermerging economic systems. Underground activism and hackerdom have also become components of artistic concepts. In the Prix Ars Electronica's twentieth year, the spectrum of approaches to digital media, which are now so formative for our daily lives, has grown broader than ever before: broader in terms of critical mass, but also broader in terms of a new generation of artists.
