Piksel 20 years Anniversary

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 August !!
