17th Athens Digital Arts Festival “Tāctus”

17th Athens Digital Arts Festival “Tāctus”

With the kind courtesy of the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the 17th Athens Digital Arts Festival “Tāctus”, will be taking place from October 13th- 17th at the new premises of the Museum of Modern Greek Culture, in the heart of Athens.

An entire historic neighborhood, comprised of 18 fully restored buildings from the late 19th – early 20th century, constitute the Museum of Modern Greek Culture. ADAF invites you to discover this new cultural gem with an ultimate Digital Art experience.

The main venue for this year’s festival, an entire block consisting of multiple buildings and terraces, will host the selected artwork from this year’s open call, of Greek and International artists from around the world across all categories: Video Art, Animation, Digital Image, Web Art, Installations, Virtual Reality, Games, Augmented Reality, Performances, Workshops, Talks, ADAF Kids and Festivals of The World.


A few highlights:

Our favourite category, ADAF KIDS,   an entire digital arts festival dedicated to children and parents, will be housed in its very own building and feature educational and entertaining activities as well as artwork from all categories. 

The Bath House of Winds, a monument which dates back from the first period of Turkish rule (1453-1669), will host works that stood out for their theme and relate to the meaning of the Other, as they emerged through this year’s theme Tāctus”.

The façade of the Tzistaraki Mosque will feature a 3D Mapping Projection show and on the corner of Areos and Kladou Street there will be Open Air Screenings.

The terraces in the main museum will host Performances and the building, 19 Panos Street (the ex café of the Athens School of Fine Arts) will be revived with a series of special events.  

In collaboration with ADAF, the research project AI TRACE (Synaesthetic Engagement of Artificial Intelligence with Digital Arts and its Audience) will be present in a specially designed space to conduct research and explore the audience’s relationship with Digital Arts.
