Ars Electronica 2013, Bilbao
Artists as Catalysts
Premiere of Ars Electronica Linz’s exhibition in Bilbao, Spain

Environment and Sustainable Future

Control and Manipulation of Our Mediatized World

and Find Your Voice and Express Yourself.

(Linz / Bilbao, July 4, 2013) “All artists are alike. They dream of doing something that’s more social, more collaborative, and more real than art” (Dan Graham). This insight inspired “Artists as Catalysts” and launched the development of this exhibition running from July 4 to September 8, 2013 at Alhóndiga Bilbao. In collaboration with Lourdes Fernández, director of the cultural institution that recently underwent a Philippe Starck makeover, Ars Electronica has assembled an exhibition subdivided into three themes: Environment and Sustainable Future; Control and Manipulation of Our Mediatized World; and Find Your Voice and Express Yourself. The works on display here challenge our perceptions, affront and surprise us, call into question concepts like private vs. public spheres and surveillance and control, subsume natural and artificial processes, and deal with them artistically. The artists and their works function as catalysts that trigger discourses, bring out new ways of considering things and open channels. Audience members are cordially invited to engage in this confrontation, to actively scrutinize these issues, to seek answers as well as new questions. The exhibition constitutes just the start, a first step.
