PICTOPLASMA, the world’s leading and largest Festival of contemporary character culture returns to Berlin, with a dense, one-week program of inspiring artist presentations, conference lectures, animation festival, workshops, installations, numerous character walk exhibitions, performances, VJ battles and of course, loads of character! The unique mix of screenings, personal artist presentations, numerous exhibitions delivers tons of inspiring input, while the lively exchange between the various disciplines highlightes the importance of contemporary characters in today’s global visual understanding.
Pictoplasma is held at the Babylon, .HBC and 20 galleries and spaces around Berlin, and one of which is the Kunstbox at The Circus Hotel. From Wednesday 11th April until Sunday 15th April we are extremely pleased to welcome Gemma Correll, a freelance cartoonist and illustrator whose work is narrative-based and with a strong emphasis on wordplay, humour, observational journalism and cats. She will be exhibiting a lifesize sculpture of a porcelain dog, along with a mural and some prints/original illustrations. We are extremely happy not only to be hosting Pictoplasma for the second year in a row, but also to welcome Gemma to the Circus.
