The Peter Weibel Research
Institute for Digital Cultures creates a space for scientific-artistic investigations into the transformations in digital
culture in light of the technological revolution. The endowment of the Peter Weibel Archive to the Angewandte provides an
incomparable foundation and source of inspiration for the theoretical and artistic innovation of media art at the interface
between art, technology, and social responsibility, and moreover for the development of future perspectives and scenarios
for new forms and functions of digital cultures in the so-called digital age, which will be characterised by artificial intelligence,
quantum technology, and biotechnology and lead to a fusion of science and art in these fields.
The Peter Weibel
Research Institute for Digital Cultures is a site for scientific, artistic, and scientific-artistic research in the
framework of doctorate and other research projects. It also serves as a platform for public and international discourse about
the definition of digital cultures, digital future, and the relationship between science and media art. Regular public lectures,
discussions, and symposia as well as publications provide sustainable impulses in the academic community and in the discourse
about society as a whole.
