Audiovisual Performances & Party
The DokfestLounge is based in the Caricatura - Bar + Gallery in Kassel’s main train station, in the middle of the geographical heart of the festival. With a jury-curated international program of audiovisual performances and video mappings, produced in analogue or digital media, as well as club visuals and VJ-Sets, the DokfestLounge shows for four nights current trends from the field of performative media art, represented this year by 24 artists coming from Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Serbia, Japan, Spain, USA and France.
Next to the curated program, the DokfestLounge will offer on Thursday the second edition of the Open VJ Stage with the possibility for all external and local artists, filmmakers and visitors to showcase and to try out own VJ-sets as well as playing together, interactive and simultaneously on the separate screens of the location. This year, including a VJ Battle with awarded VJ and mapping software prizes for a total value of 1.000 Euro, sponsored by our partner Resolume – VJ and mapping software. Also on Thursday, we invite you in cooperation with the School of Art and Design Kassel to join our artists’ talk. Furthermore, we are very happy to initiate this year for the first time our new audiovisual residency program DokfestLaunch.
