The Werkleitz Festival 2021 move to… sociosphere, ecosphere, bodydatasphere is a correspondence location of the 2021 Ars Electronica. In the past 4 years the artists and collectives at 11 institutions of the European Media Art Platform have been researching the most urgent challenges of our age. Kat Austen will take part in the programme with her work ‘Stranger to the Trees‘ at the livestream EMAP Garden: move to… ecosphere and online exhibition.
The contributions of the ecosphere shed light on the consequences of the digitalisation of our ecosystem, knowledge generated by a shift in perspective away from humans and towards other life forms, and the opportunities for “peaceful co-existence” and cooperation between species.
The virtual closing exhibition will feature 44 works that have been produced with the support of Creative Europe. It will open on Werkleitz website from 8th until 12th September.
