From October 6th to 8th, 60+ artists and creative producers working at the intersection of art, design and technology take over a former school in Berlin Kreuzberg to transform it into a playground of the future.
How is technology shaping our society and how do artists and creative producers address this question? These are the questions at the core of the Retune Festival – a 3-day event with more than 200 participants in the heart of Berlin.
In its fourth edition, Retune is reinventing itself. Breaking with the traditional conference setting, this year’s edition focuses on small and intimate formats. Aiming for dialogues rather than monologues and focussing on providing as much hands-on experience as possible. Thus, giving the audience the chance to dive deeply into each topic, and establish a direct conversation with the presenting artists. It’s all about inspiration, experience, and exchange!
From talks and keynotes, cutting-edge installations, hands-on experiences, audiovisual performances, immersive exhibitions, intimate discussions, in-depth workshops and a workshop for kids, the programme of the festival is grouped around four main themes:
# Immersed Narratives – Exploring the opportunities of storytelling in virtual reality.
# Neuronal Creation – Expanding creative expression with Artificial Intelligence.
# Networked Transplantations - Extending bodies and senses.
# Creative Production - Investigating how creatives get from prototypes to products.
