ArtFutura has established itself as one of the most important international events dedicated to Digital Art, Virtual Reality and Computer Networks. Since the 1990s it has been bringing together artists, academics, students and audiences to experience cutting edge New Media Arts.

This year, we are delighted to announce that the festival will take place entirely online. It will be presented over four days at three different venues: Iklectik, Music Hackspace and the weekend festival at Watermans.

For its 30th edition the ArtFutura audiovisual program includes a selection of the most relevant works in two sections: Futura Graphics, showing new aesthetics, digital animations and experimental shorts, and Artworks showing performances, new media installations and other interactive environments. Including works by Julius Horsthuis, David Lewandowski, Stéphane Aubier, Vincent Patar, Kris Merc, … and teamlab, WOW Inc, Ouchhh, Squidsoup and others.

Thursday: ArtFutura and Iklectik present the panel discussion Computer Graphics and Visual Content in VR with the artists James E. Marks, Nicola Plant and Allegra Shorto. Afterward there will be the Live AV performance MUTABLE VR by Chris Speed about sonic arts, interaction, hardware hacking, visual music and VR.

Friday: With Music Hackspace, ArtFutura presents the Masterclass + Live AV performance by Leon Trimble, presenting The Gravity Synth, a musical instrument combining the instrumentation used to detect gravitational waves, and a modular synthesiser.

Saturday & Sunday: At Watermans, ArtFutura presents a workshop by Blanca Regina about audiovisual mapping (SUPPORTED BY MADMAPPER). There will also be artist talks with Ronen Tachun, Matteo Zamagni and Panja Gobel who will present their projects, videos and art installations.
