20 years of digital revolution in Athens. A unique immersive experience.

Athens Digital Arts Festival, the first and largest international platform for digital arts in Greece, celebrates two decades of creativity and digital innovation in contemporary art with a special anniversary edition at two iconic venues in the heart of Athens. From May 16 to May 26, 2024, the Former Santaroza Courthouse and Justice Square will be transformed into a vibrant stage of artistic expression and technological experimentation, hosting the 20th Athens Digital Arts Festival under the title “TECHNO(S)CENE”.

ADAF 2024: TECHNO(S)CENE honors the rich history of digital art and the festival, while also focusing on the future of digital culture. Inspired by concepts such as the technocene era and technoscience, as well as the dynamic scene of digital culture, this year’s event explores the profound impact of technology on our lives, recognizing it not only as a tool but also as a pervasive force that shapes perceptions, creative expressions, and our very existence.

Artists, scientists, technologists, and intellectuals from diverse backgrounds and communities forge a rich program of immersive experiences in a venue with a rich history: the Former Santaroza Courthouse at Justice Square. Once dominated by the explosive sounds of the working machines of the National Printing House in the 19th century and serving as a meeting point for Athenian society throughout the 20th century, it is now being transformed into a lively hub of creativity.

At the 20th Athens Digital Arts Festival, artists redefine the boundaries of human creativity, creating mesmerizing digital landscapes that leave the audience in awe. Impressive installations, special performances, and captivating screenings, talks, and tributes create a multidimensional experience for the audience around digital culture. Whether humans, artificial intelligence, or hybrids, the creators offer different perspectives on the transformative power of technology, sparking dialogue about the future of art, science, and society in the age of the digital revolution.

With over 3.000 artistic proposals from 106 countries and distinguished guests from the international art scene, the 20th Athens Digital Arts Festival promises a unique multimedia experience of digital art, embodying the spirit of innovation, creativity, and inclusivity that has defined the festival for two decades.

Join us in celebrating the digital revolution at the “stage” of the 20th Athens Digital Arts Festival.
