Event Description


Held annually since 2007, CYBERFEST is the first and biggest festival for technologically based art in Russia. Growing over years to become a massive international event, CYBERFEST 2012 rose to include over 80 artists held across St Petersburg’s top institutions: The State Hermitage Museum, Peter and Paul Fortress, KURYOKHIN MODERN ART CENTER, POLIGRAF Art Hall, Borey Gallery, and the Gallery of Experimental Sound.

This year, Cyberfest will be held in Berlin – marking the first time this important event is held outside St Petersburg… This significant move was designed to strengthen the cultural exchange between Art and Technology creatives within Russia and their international counterparts.

International art and technology innovators are welcome to submit work for consideration through September 15, 2013.

The moniker “Paradigm Shift” is used to describe nonconsecutive anomalies that transform the processes of intellectual thought. Such shifts fuel advancements of society. Not observable without context of history or time- these changes define ages on reflection. Artworks pushing their inherent creative medium from the present into the future were selected to contextualize what has been and what may be.
