Interactive Exhibition "The Glass Room", Hall 4.0 F30

We hear a lot about misinformation, disinformation and conspiracy theories these days. But what makes a piece of information reliable or unreliable? What role do new technologies and social media platforms play in how misinformation spreads and the impact it has on our culture, politics and society?

We hear a lot about misinformation, disinformation and conspiracy theories these days. But what makes a piece of information reliable or unreliable? What role do new technologies and social media platforms play in how misinformation spreads and the impact it has on our culture, politics and society?

This exhibition explored what misinformation is, why it’s shared and how it spreads. The Glass Room has been nominated for the STARTS Prize 22.

Art, technology and society—since 1979, Ars Electronica (AT) has been investigating how they’re interrelated and where they overlap, and seeking causes and effects at work among them.

In doing so, the Ars Electronica Festival functions as a proving ground, the Prix Ars Electronica is an international competition to honor outstanding achievements in media art, the Ars Electronica Center is an educational institution and Museum of the Future open throughout the year, the Futurelab is Ars Electronica’s in-house R&D facility, and AE Solutions is the business division that carries out assignments commissioned by clients in the private sector. All these entities constantly monitor their respective domains to identify what’s happening in science and research, art and technology, and to mutually inspire one another.

With a national, European and international mission, BOZAR serves an artistic and policy platform for new ideas and concepts. Creativity, quality, and artistic diversity have been at the heart of the Centre’s mission since its foundation. But for art not to be something abstract and distant, for it to be truly part of the “culture” of a society – and particularly in a city as variegated and international as Brussels – the public must be able to experience it in a way that is both natural and lively. Art and people must find and recognize each other, must interact with and enrich each other.
