Ars Electronica Linz: 2010 Recap / 2011 Preview

3,083 Prix submissions, 90,227 Festivalgoers and 162,438 visitors to the Center, exhibitions in Tokyo, Berlin and Mexico City with attendance topping 300,000, approximately €1 million in R&D funding for the Futurelab, 10% growth in staff size, and the third best financial results in Ars Electronica’s history—this brief overview of our activities last year is a story of success.

Big plans for 2011
Ars Electronica has big plans for 2011. The year kicked off with our first appearance in India. Following right on its heels in February is our latest exhibition at the Biennale in Venice. Back in Linz, there will be two highlights on the Ars Electronica Center’s March lineup: the premiere of the new RoboLab and the vernissage of the “What Machines Dream Of” exhibition. Plus, AEC’s employment will continue to grow, and gross revenues are projected to rise from €11 million to €12.5 million (about 13%).
