Jury Member for PRIX Ars Electronica 2020

The PRIX Ars Electronica is the leading award in the domain of digital art and culture. This year I was honored to serve as a member of the jury in the field of digital communities.

We awarded the Hong Kong Protest Movement with a Golden Nica,  the runner-up awards go to Algorithmic Justice League and the Habaq Movement.

Deutschland Funk Kultur also interviewed me regarding our decision. Listen to the Interview here.

As a member of the Jury, I would have received 800 Euros for the work (we need to select the top projects out of over 300 submissions). Since the ARS Electronica takes place at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz and I am part of the JKU Almar Mater program, I asked the ARS Electronica team to donate the money to a good cause (more on that in a follow-up blog post).
