The objects in this year’s Ars Electronica exhibition show that failures and errors have often been the source of innovative developments. The artists ask the question: What if we no longer recognize deviation and do not know whether we can tolerate it or not? The exhibition presents a selection of works at the interface between art and technology. Viewers can look forward to digital LED productions along with mobile robot and sound installations.

DRIVE. Volkswagen Group Forum

DRIVE, the Volkswagen Group Forum, is the company’s communications platform in Berlin. Located in the heart of the capital city, the Volkswagen Group’s first presentation of all twelve brands together with Volkswagen Financial Services AG opened in 2015 in the Lindencorso building. Featuring a series of changing brand and thematic exhibitions supplemented by a diverse supporting program, DRIVE serves as a showcase for the company’s mobility themes. The legendary Café Bauer, one of the first Viennese-style coffee houses in Berlin, once stood on this site. During the Second World War the building was completely destroyed and later replaced by the new Lindencorso building, which served as a restaurant and office complex.
