donaufestival 2020, Machines Like Us  (april 24 – 26 und april 30 - may 02 , Krems a.d.D., Austria)

On two long weekends the one-of-a-kind art festival will feature adventuresome aesthetics and oscillations between music, performance, visual arts, film, and discursive formats.

This year’s leitmotif responds to the growing influence of algorithms and artificial intelligence on society. donaufestival 2020 examines the multifaceted relationships between man and machine, which are also transforming the self-conception of creative practices.

All PROGRAMME DETAILS are online now!

ACCREDITATION possible from until april, 17
