As the Kunstbox at The Circus Hostel is no more, we are unfortunately not able to host the wonderful folks from Pictoplasma for their festival this year, although of course we are really looking forward to the invasion of weird and wonderful character art and will be wandering the neighbourhood to check out what is going on.
Pictoplasma is “The world’s leading Festival of contemporary character culture” and is taking place in Berlin from 10-14 April. At the conference there is a mix of artist talks and screenings, and there are also four club nights to keep you entertained long into the evening, but one of our favourite parts is the Character Walk:
“The Festival’s CHARACTER WALK, an exhibition tour through 23+ project spaces, galleries and art venues throughout the city, presents character driven exhibitions by many of the participating conference speakers and international artists, featuring originals, installations, sculptures and limited editions. As a premiere the tour is no longer limited to the Mitte district, but also ventures off into the creative scene of Kreuzberg and Neukölln.”
We will have some maps if you want to explore the character walk, or check out the list of exhibitions on the Pictoplasma website.
