In media art, Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau are considered pioneers of the "Art of Interface". This Austrian-French artist couple takes inspiration from systems, as we know them from nature, when developing their interactive and visually spectacular installations. Since the early 1990s, they have been working with the most advanced techniques, such as artificial intelligence, while bringing us closer to the secrets of what we call "life".
In 2023, iMAL dedicates a retrospective exhibition to these influential artists: The Artwork As A Living System.
The exhibition is a co-production with ZKM, Karlsruhe (DE) and the OÖ Landes-Kultur, Linz (A).
