St Petersburg: Cyfest 12

Various Locations

Lumen Art Projects, the Lumen Prize’s parent, is delighted to be returning to St Petersburg this November to participate in the international media art festival, Cyfest 12, introducing the work of two Lumen artists. The  festival, once again, will be organised by our partner Cyland Media Lab, which holds events in the US and Russia featuring interactive art, sound art, video art, and educational programming

The theme this year will be ID, examining identity in all its forms. “ID” has a wide range of meanings – from the term in psychoanalysis (the id) to the document that certifies one’s identity (ID).  Cyfest 12 will be highlighting what ID represents in today’s world of people, data and devices, what new meanings come to life when these interact and what these interactions lead to.

Lumen Arts Projects will be curating two works in the festival, one featuring Lumen Prize Artists Mario Klingemann, who won the 2018 Lumen Prize Gold Award and the other by Nye Thompson who was shortlisted last year and this year.

CYFEST, one of the world’s largest international media art festivals, was founded in St. Petersburg in 2007 by independent artists and curators. The festival promotes the emergence of new forms of art and high technology interactions, developing professional connections between artists, curators, engineers and programmers around the world and exposing wide audiences to the works in the field of robotics, video art, sound art and net art.
