Flashback: Digital Arts Lab 2019

Digital Arts Lab

Last hub.berlin, we asked how art can push the boundaries of tech? How can we grow digital creativity within our society? To answer these questions, we created the Digital Arts Lab (powered by Samsung), a two-day interactive pop-up exhibition presented during hub.berlin 2019.

Under the roof of the iconic STATION Berlin 12 Berlin based digital artists presented their latest works on the verge of art and technology. Among the creatives were acclaimed individual artists like So Kanno, multiple award-winner at the Japan Media Arts Festival, as well asrenowned collectives like the German studio Schnellebuntebilder which became famous for its impressive 3D light installation during the opening of the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg. These project were created with the platform for creative technology, Retune.

This year, art enthusiasts can experience Digital Arts Lab at hub.berlin 2020 again.

There will be new artists and ​​​the exhibition will be accompanied on both days by lectures in which the artists share their knowledge and offer a peek into their creative processes.

Opening times:
The Exhibition is open on 1 April from 10am to 8pm and on 2 April from 10am to 6pm.
The entrance is free.
