Piksel 20 years Anniversary
PikselXX is scheduled for November 17 – 20. 2022

Dear friends,

We are glad to announce the call for projects for the 20 years Piksel

To celebrate the anniversary we open a new track for texts, if you are
a previous Piksel participant and want to share with us your
experience, this section is yours. Selected articles from the open call
together with some curated texts from Piksel artists and colleagues
will be included in the Piksel 20 years book. 

Piksel will go hybrid again. Screen-based artworks and PikselSavers are
primarily intended for the Piksel XX Cyber Salon. Ideas for
collaborative online/physical activities are welcome. This year we want
to be back to physicality, we encourage you to present art
installations that can be built in Bergen to minimize the international
transport, according to the green strategy. 

Please feel free to submit your projects to any one of the open tracks:
Presentations, workshops, concerts, installations, and the texts call.

Deadline is 31st of July!!
