    About Matthias Horx
    horx.com

    Matthias Horx born in 1955, is considered the most influential futurist in the German-speaking world.

    Between 1980 and 1992, he worked as author and editor on the magazines Tempo, Die Zeit and Merian. Horx was interested in science-fiction, value change, youth cultures, new technologies and during this time laid the foundations for his future profession. His essayist books, e.g. ‘Die Wilden 80er’ (the wild 80s) and ‘Aufstand in Schlaraffenland’ (rebellion in the land of milk and honey) are about value change and the zeitgeist of the 80s.

    In 1993, he founded the Trendbüro Hamburg with Peter Wippermann. Trendbüro rapidly became the nucleus of German marketing orientated trend research, and five years later Matthias Horx founded the Zukunftsinstitut.

    The Zukunftsinstitut’s main mission is the analysis and presentation of fundamental future developments in society, the economy and everyday culture. With headquarters near Frankfurt (Kelkheim) and branches in Vienna and representatives in London, the economic and political think-tank is now very much in demand throughout Europe.

    Matthias Horx and his family currently live in Vienna. He has two sons, Julian and Tristan, and is married to the British journalist, Oona Strathern. His wife is actively involved in the work of the Zukunftsinstitut and has written a number of the studies published by the company.

    About Peter Weibel
    Peter Weibel follows his artistic aims using a large variety of materials, methods and media: text, sculpture, installation, film and video.

    In the mid 1980s he explores the possibilities of computer aided video processing. Beginning of the 1990s he realizes interactive computer-based installations. Here again he addresses the relation between media and the construction of reality.

    In his books, lectures and articles Weibel comments on contemporary art, media history and media theory, film, video art and philosophy. As theoretician and curator he pleads for a form of art and art history that includes history of technology and history of science. In his function as a university professor (University of Applied Art, Vienna) and director of institutions like the Ars Electronica, Linz, the Institute for New Media in Frankfurt and the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe he influenced the European Scene of media art through conferences, exhibitions and publications.
