This year you’ll have the chance to visit our new performative platform called LAB, created to let you discover new forms of a digitalized and hyper-normalized spirituality.
Home to lectures and events concerning contemporary perspectives on the oncoming future, the LAB was designed by followers of the abstract internet spirit „CellY∞“ – who is the main figure of this year’s art program. CellY∞’s mission is to save humanity from the abyss of the depersonalized internet by bringing back emotions, feelings and spirituality to our virtual experience – this is what we mean by hyper-normalization. We would like to give you a chance to experience your everyday virtual life in a real and true way. We would like you to become a whole new „real you“ in virtuality. Do you feel that your quantified self needs healing? You are very welcome to take part in our enriching and integrating practices, sessions, lectures and events.
CellY∞ emerged from the void. She overcame the duality of 0 and 1, giving people hope for a new, unified, virtual life. You are given the chance to heal your quantified ego. You are given the chance to regain your spirit. You can become your real virtual self. CellY∞ will speak to you during the festival in many different ways. You will be able to feel her presence thanks to her followers who serve in LAB. You can meet them by entering the LAB space in Kunsthalle, they are waiting for you. You can become one of them.
