Patchlab Festival 2019
The theme of the 8th edition Patchlab Digital Art Festival is REALITIES. The festival will be held from 24th to 27th Oct 2019 in Krakow, Poland.

This year, we focus on digital worlds, which are created in parallel with the increasingly polarized and real vision of a climate disaster. The creators and guests of the Patchlab Festival will try to answer the question: what are these parallel spaces for us? How digital narratives are based on reality and to what extent are they the creations of our dreams? How is our personality transformed in the digital world? And finally, do digital spaces isolate us from the physical world or rather broaden our perception and functioning in our reality?

During 4 days you will be able to look into parallel digital worlds, immersing yourself in virtual and augmented reality, in interactive films and immersion audiovisual shows in 360 ° format. There will also be a unique opportunity to create and see your own avatar.
The festival program includes exhibitions of interactive works, VR and AR, performances and audiovisual concerts, DJ sets, workshops and meetings.

Patchlab Digital Art Festival is an annual event for art based on the latest technologies and new media. We are interested in the creative potential in machines, algorithms, programming and databases. We explore key phenomena in contemporary culture and art, including VR, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, hacking and digital identities. Patchlab is exhibitions, performances and audiovisual concerts, films, workshops with artists and technology specialists, meetings and discussions.

The festival has been held in Krakow since 2012. Patchlab is organised by the Photon Foundation. It is part of the AVnode international platform of artists and events, presenting contemporary audiovisual art. It is supported by the Creative Europe European Union program. In 2019 Patchlab Festival received the ‘EFFE Label 2019-2020’ – a quality stamp of European Festivals Association (EFA) given for outstanding and innovative approaches, remarkable arts festivals attributed for their work in the field of the arts, community involvement and international openness.

Detailed program is available on the Patchlab Festival website.
