SPECIAL FOCUS: THE MASK IN VISUAL CULTURE
This year’s edition of the festival puts a thematic emphasis on the mask and expands on Pictoplasma’s ongoing research into how characters relate to, invade, take over and warp the human body, reexamining one of our most ancient cultural artifacts in a new light. Among the artists featured are Damselfrau and threadstories, two of the most prolific artists currently working with masks. Two digital artists will reflect on how face filters function as a way to change our identities online: David OReilly and Ines alpha.
