I want to draw your attention to two exciting museums in Linz, Austria. They are opposite of each other with the giant river Danube flowing between…
The Ars Electronica Museum is a place of inquiry and discovery, experimentation and exploration. It is a place that has taken the world of tomorrow as its stage, and one that assembles and presents influences from many different perspectives. Visitors can encounter the Center on their own, or seek guidance from the expert Info-trainers stationed throughout the exhibits. 16 x 9 meter wall and floor projections, laser tracking and 3-D animations have been the specialties of the Deep Space display since 2009. A recent upgrade of the Deep Space venue’s technical infrastructure now enables audiences to enjoy projections at 8K resolution, and thus worlds of imagery at a never-before-achieved level of quality. Full HD and 4K—that’s yesterday’s news. 8K is what’s happening now, and that standard was set by the latest update. A visit to Deep Space 8K promises to be extraordinary, fascinating, impressive, and breath-taking. The Ars Electronica, the museum of the future, is located next to the Danube River with a fantastic view over the city of Linz. On the top floor, the restaurant Cubus awaits you where you can enjoy snacks while overlooking the Danube.
The Lentos Art Gallery is opposite the Ars Electronica on the other site of the Danube. Here you can visit three different exhibitions and make a short stop in the Lentos Café. In the evening, these two museums appear with a special lighting. The whole front of the buildings glows in blue, white, green or pink!
