SIGNALS FESTIVAL 2022

The perfect, curated you.

Signals Festival 2022

28-29 October, Funkhaus Berlin

The perfect, curated you.

What is more real, our online or offline selves? Do digital realms distort who we are, or do they offer space for truer expression? How do we live and coexist in the evolving world of the multi-self?

Exploring art and technology, Signals Festival is an annual showcase of Catalyst Berlin’s emerging and diverse creative communities. We are a non-profit, educational event with live performances, installations, screenings, workshops and in-depth dialogue.
