For the 6th Annual Edition, CYBERFEST 2012 explores the impacts of art and technology on society’s future through a 6 day multidisciplinary event titled ‘AT HEAVEN’S DOOR’. Exhibits, events and performances across St Petersburg’s top cultural venues present varied perspectives on the physical state of international New Media and the metaphysical directions it leads society.
CYBERFEST is the first and only Russian International festival for cybernetic art (which combines living, biological and somatic substances with computational and technical), held annually since 2007. In past years, CYBERFEST was 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.
CYBERFEST is organized by CYLAND MediaLab, one of Russia’s most active New Media art nonprofit organizations. CYLAND houses the largest archive of Eastern European video art online, runs a residency program and organizes exhibits around the world. CYLAND supports the art and technology community by building opportunities between the global art world and Eastern Europe.
All CYBERFEST events and exhibitions are open to the public for free/no charge.
