PICTOPLASMA
CONFERENCE
2021

 

After last year’s Pictoplasma Berlin had to be cancelled IRL, we went online – and served more than 100k viewers with soothing character art. 

Now its time for the Uber-Festival of contemporary character culture to carefully return to the real world, with an all new line-up of awe inducing artist presentations, a vivid mix of on-stage and remote conference lectures, freshly curated animation screenings, hands-on workshops — and as always: a multitude of mingling characters!

And additionally we’ll be online too!

PICTOPLASMA
MAGAZINE
ISSUE #1
 

Pictoplasma’s first issue of its new magazine for character design and art examines current artistic strategies that deal with the human face. From masks to digital filters, design to performance, pandemics to protests, the face remains a strategic zone where our identity and privacy are constantly being challenged and redefined – and new characters emerge.
