Lecture Stage

THU September 07. 2017, 12 PM - MON September 11. 2017, 05 PM

With every festival year the program for conferences and expert presentations is growing alongside the exhibition program, from the topic of “Media Art and the Art Market”, to the question of how cultures actually shape technology, up to education-relevant future topics or topics focusing on the intensive collaboration between scientists and artists.

Being the smaller sister of the big Conference Stage so to speak, the Lecture Stage will also be a hot spot for attending high-level panel discussions with top-class lecturers.
