Cyberfest

SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN Cyberfest, various venues, until 17 November Like it or not, technology is the new god: omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. It’s a gift and a curse, but as both Voltaire and Stan Lee have said, with great power comes great responsibility. And for the next five days, the Cyberfest will use exhibitions, performances, screenings, workshops and more to highlight how technology can be used in positive ways. Created in 2007 and hosted annually in St. Petersburg, Russia, Cyberfest is a cross-genre festival dedicated to promoting and exploring the idea of technologically-based art and what it means for the present and the future. This year marks a first for the event, as it moves West, across borders, to Berlin. The theme,  Time & Place , features more than 100 artists and innovators forming unlikely partnerships with projects, organizations and venues in the city. It is the hope of the minds behind Cyberfest that this expansion will reinforce the idea of international relationships and cultural exchange. As such, it is open to the public and absolutely free, with no rules other than anything is possible.  Natalye Childress Events and venues vary — check website for full programme; admission: free.
