In September, 2021, Linz is joining the Leonardo Art & Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) network. This international program brings together artists, scientists, scholars and the general public for inspiring presentations and conversations. The LEONARDO LASER LINZ, hosted by the Interface Cultures department of the University of Art and Design Linz, will be held during the Ars Electronica 2021 Festival. For the LASER launch event, more sustainable ways of living, local and global environmental protection and artistic and scientific developments for a “climate-modern” future, will be given a special interdisciplinary focus. In a modernized “Gartenlaube,”  themes such as Climate-Care, Climate-Digital and Climate-Social (as proposed by Christoph Thun-Hohenstein), will be debated and discussed. Other specific topics will be presented, including Interspecies Collaboration, The Mind of Plants, Herbal Pedagogy, Biodynamic Farming and an exploration and celebration of artistic and folk wisdom, to bring us all together for a "Gartenlaube Waltz".

Friday, September 10, 2021 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm CEST / 5:00 am - 7:00 am PST in Person and Online REGISTER HERE.

The event will take place at Kunstuniversität Linz, Hauptplatz 8 Courtyard, 4020 Linz, Austria. To register your attendance please book your ticket on link below. The event will also be livestreamed.
