The Festspielhaus Hellerau will be the venue for the 22nd edition of CYNETART from 11 to 14 October 2018. This means that this year’s festival for the presentation of international positions in art with new media and technologies will move from November to October. This year’s leitmotif “Stupor” polemically stands for a condensed image of dissociation and non-resonance in society and art. In addition to a high-quality supporting programme of concerts, performances and lectures, the Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau (TMA) and its partners will once again announce the 2018 international CYNETART competition. Applications are now being accepted.
