Festival

For numerous reasons, discussing the future seems particularly relevant today. Futurological visions are increasingly part of our reality - visions that were regarded as intriguing yet far-fetched fantasies even a decade ago. Like no other tool, culture helps us imagine, understand, and grow familiar with the future. Through its lens we shall observe many aspects of what lies ahead.

For numerous reasons, discussing the future seems particularly relevant today. Futurological visions are increasingly part of our reality - visions that were regarded as intriguing yet far-fetched fantasies even a decade ago. Like no other tool, culture helps us imagine, understand, and grow familiar with the future. Through its lens we shall observe many aspects of what lies ahead.

Last year’s edition of Digital Cultures Festival was focused on archives and engaging in a creative dialogue with the past. This year, we turn our attention in the opposite direction, towards the multifarious visions of the future in culture and in digital art. There is no single set scenario for what is to come, but rather a whole spectrum of likely events, utopian visions and possible changes. What tools do we want to employ to build and make sense of future utopias today? How can we put them to creative use in order to make a change?

The festival has ended but you can still watch all the talks you’ve missed, and relive the moments you loved. We’ve put the videos on our website in the Rewatch section (https://digitalcultures.pl/en/rewatch/).
