Gerfried Stocker, director of Ars Electronica (AE), and Victoria Vesna, artist, director of the UCLA Art Sci Center, and AE jury member, present a selection of prize-winning projects from AE and discuss how artistic strategies for responding to political and societal malfeasance have changed with the massive erosion of traditional media and information hierarchies. The question now is, What are the new avenues for artists working with media, and how can they play a role to offset attacks on truth and fact?
