“In 2021, COVID-19 continued to profoundly affect our lives, and Ars Electronica was not spared, either: In February 2021, Hannes Leopoldseder, founder of the Prix Ars Electronica and co-founder of Ars Electronica, was abruptly torn from this life by the virus. Established in 1987 and based on his idea, the Prix Ars Electronica has now become the largest continuously held competition for digital art in the world. The legacy of Hannes Leopoldseder reminds us of the essential meaning of Ars Electronica: Getting people excited about the future; inspiring, involving, and motivating them. It reminds us that with and at Ars Electronica, we must make our contribution to shaping a future that belongs to all of us”.
