The 8th annual Piksel festival for Electronic Art and Technological Freedom
– exhibitions – workshops – live art – presentations
– November 18-21, Bergen (NO)
The 8th edition of Piksel celebrates the unstable as a source of creativity,
revolt and development. At the edge of a new decennium, 100 years after
futurism and dada permanently changed the artworld, we are again at a point in
time where instability grows and anything can happen.
The festival theme, (Un)stable, points to the temporarily placed and unsteady
constructions, mobile spaces, code in constant development, a globally
charged political climate and how these factors are changing the production of
