The central task of the esc media art laboratory is the production of art.
In this context the main focus is on the precise observation and seismographic recording of
artistic processes that examine and deal with socio-political developments (information- and
biotechnologies, socio-economic systems) and new technologies (hardware and software).
The artistic activities of the esc media art laboratory derive from the notion that art is
understood as subsystem of social and societal reality; the media-specific approach is based
on the designation of this reality through “new” culture technologies [“new media”].
