Audiovisual Performances & Party

For the second time, the DokfestLounge is hosted in the Weinkirche, an over 500 square meters big underground wine cellar which is based in the heart of Kassel‘s nightlife. In a neo-gothic ambiance, the DokfestLounge shows for four days an international jury-curated program of audiovisual performances, video mappings, club visuals and DJ-sets, represented by 19 artists coming from Germany, Austria, France, Poland, USA and the Netherlands. Last but not least the DokfestLounge is the nocturnal meeting point and the communicative interface of the festival, inviting people at the end of each day to process their festival impressions together and to let the day fade away on the dance floor.
