Virtual Ars Electronica at C3
September 4 – 9, 1999


A project of ENCART (European Network of Cyber Arts)

Ars Electronica's 20th anniversary is not only an opportunity to review and analyze 20 years of development in the digital media and arts. To a much greater extent, this occasion is a challenge to look ahead to the next major transitional step. What will succeed digital information technology?
With this year's Festival, Ars Electronica shifts its thematic focus to the field of modern biotechnology and genetic engineering, whereby we carry on our tradition of concentrating upon areas of conflict development in the sphere of tension and interplay at the nexus of technology and society.

During the festival, the Ars Electronica Festival, Linz, and the  C3 Center for Culture and Communication, Budapest, maintains live communication via a high-speed ATM network.
