[ISEA2020] Institutional Presentation: Christina Radner — The Ars Electronica Archives

Institutional Presentation Statement

Also short Summit presentation

The Ars Electronica Archive contains documentation content since the start of Ars Electronica in 1979. A huge amount of artists and researchers from the field of art, technology and society were part of Ars Electronica activities during more than 40 years. They have left their traces in the archive.

The presentation provides a glimpse into what the Ars Electronica Archive is and stands for. Part of the archive is accessible online (Online Archive), part of it only internally (physiscal Archive & Internal Database). The recording of the ISEA2020 talk took place in the Deep Space 8K at the Ars Electronica Center. As example for artists and researchers, working with the archive, the project “Vector Space: Prix Ars Electronica Universe”, developed by the Ars Electronica Futurlab, is mentioned. ars.electronica.art archive.aec.at
