The Festival

From 16th to 19th of November 2017 you can experience the four-day CYNETART – international festival for computer based arts and transdisciplinary projects at the historically significant Hellerau Festival Theatre in Dresden, Germany. The festival offers an exhibition, presentations, readings, workshops, performances, transdisciplinary media art projects and concerts.

CYNETART 2017 falls under the slogan „Enlightenment For The Nerd“, aiming to identify forward-looking knowledge reservoirs by offering an extended lecture program together with innovative A/V-performances. The associated exhibition focuses on different positions united by clear language of form. For the participatory format „24 HOURS”, the house will be open for various forms of joint art production.

CYNETART festival, which has been held since 1997, dedicates itself to cultural reflection. Our focus lies less on the capabilities of new technologies, but rather on their cultural exchange potential and to bridge the gap between intuition, crafts, aesthetics and narrative.
