in the Skyloft & Deepspace of Ars Electronica Center

Most likely a grey winter’s day in town - but hey! Foremost it will be colorful and sparkling with TEDxLinz fireworks of ideas! 


It will be an all-day event with speaking sessions from 10 am till 6 pm. The event will be hosted partly in English and partly in German. If you want to know the language of the talks, please check out the speaker informations.


The New Normal

We tend to constantly strive for improvement, innovation and any kind of highlights on the search for greatness and ultimate happiness. That prevents us from seeing what is actually happening around us in the normality of our everyday lives. Whilst the highlights appear in gloss and light, the majority of our lifetime seems to happen almost unnoticed in the shadow of everyday's normality. What if the spotlight is redirected to the parts of our lives that we actually spend most of our time with. Then again, what is actually still normal in this so-considered normality? Does this concept still have a legacy or did it become redundant in times when each and anyone can have one's normality tailor-made.
