THE CONFERENCE ARE
NO LONGER AVAILABLE!
BUT: All of the accompanying character walk exhibitions throughout the city, the central portrait group-show at Jandorf, the evening animation screenings at Babylon and the final birthday party are free entry or accessible at a moderate price.
THE PICTOPLASMA PORTRAIT GALLERY at Kaufhaus Jandorf offers an exhibition of new works by more than 100 artists who have most influenced the festival over the years. Featuring paintings, busts, sculptures and animated video-installations of the world’s most famed character identities, it also accommodates the current obsession with cellphone self-portraits, collected by Pictoplasma in an open call for #CharacterSelfies. 5,- Euro entry
The CHARACTER WALK, an exhibition agglomeration of numerous project spaces, galleries and art venues throughout the creative scenes of Mitte, Kreuzberg and Neukölln, awaits you with character driven exhibitions by many of the participating conference speakers and international artists. Printed maps to help you navigate through this madness will be provided at all participating exhibitions locations – free entry!
4 brand new ANIMATION PROGRAMS at the Babylon compile the very best of today’s characters in motion, with selected work ranging from stylish animation all the way to highly bewildering psychedelia. All programs await you daily at 20:00, treating you with a big-screen visual ride you’re unlikely to get anywhere else. Tickets at moderate 8,- Euro available directly at the venue.
And, last but not least, Saturday night is when the characters come out! We celebrate our 10th anniversary with a BIG BIRTHDAY PARTY at Urban Spree: Explore the joyous performative strength of characters in motion with a live concert by Big Butter (US), the duo of Tim Biskup and his brother Mike, and the premiere of Radio Minus Senior Sound System, brought to you by nobody less than Gangpol & Mit (FR). Admission 10,- Euro
