PixelVÄRK Festival – 5-6th October 2007

PixelACHE is a festival for electronic art and subcultures. The first festival was organised in Helsinki in 2002. Since then it has become anannual event at Kiasma and additional festivals have been arranged in NewYork, Bratislava, Montreal, Paris and Colombia. PixelACHE presents projects experimenting with media and technology from a broad range of discipline: artists, engineers, designers, researchers and architects. There is a focus on grass-roots networks and communities such as VJ Communities, media activists, open source communities and demo scene. The overall aim for PixelACHE is to bridge between traditional creative disciplines and electronic subcultures.

Mejan Labs is together with the PixelACHE founder Juha Huuskonen organising the second PixelACHE festival in Stockholm as a part of the Game Art exhibition in September and October. The Stockholm version, PixelVÄRK, will this time concentrate on seminars discussing aesthetic qualities and a club event with Dj and Vj performances.

The PixelVÄRK programme will be announced in early September.
