CYBERFEST is Russia’s leading art-tech festival – and last year exhibited over 80 artists across St Petersburg’s top institutions including The State Hermitage Museum, Peter & Paul Fortress, Kuryokhin Modern Art Centre and the Gallery of Experimental Sound. Next week is the festival’s 7th year and time to break away from the mother land to show 100+ tech led artists in Berlin, strengthening the cultural exchange between Russian creatives and their international counterparts. From here on the festival will travel to a new city each year.
The venue is Berlin’s The WYE – an international Art and Technology hub in the historic Post building in the heart of Kreuzberg, Berlin and an incubator for local and international innovators, facilitating exchange between the Art and Tech industries in Berlin. So get down to the Wye next week to explore a Baltic state of mind through five days of performances, workshops, exhibitions, screenings and symposiums: no tickets sold nor entrances fees charged. Yep, free.
Russia’s non-profit Cyland Media Lab is the force behind Cyberfest – cofounded by Marina Koldobskaya and Anna Frants.
