WELCOME TO the 18th Edition of the hybrid PIKSEL FESTIVAL!
Piksel is an annual festival for artists and developers working with
free/open source software, hardware and art in Bergen.

Dear friends, we would like to invite you to join the new online
edition Piksel20. The future narrow, where you don’t want to go!,
through the Piksel Cyber Salon, Pikselfliks LIVE and Pikselfliks online

The festival is presenting more than 85 local and international artists 
in this edition. Works challenging the pandemic times, where artists 
have explored strategies to overcome frustration. Projects made in the 
Quarantine 10 residencies produced by Piksel to be able to bring some 
artists to the city whilst they have some time to be together and
create under better conditions. Manifestations of the power of the
networks: the cultural Nordnes, a collaboration among the cultural
organizations in the Nordnes neighbourhood in Bergen, the TransPiksel
Abya Yala artists network from South America, and APO33 from France.
The virtual space Piksel Cyber Salon, where we can meet with our
avatars and see the festival exhibition. And at last, we rely on the
power of the hybridization through 2 Piksel TV channels: Pikselfliks,
presenting the astonishing video program and Pikselfliks LIVE,
following the online program of concerts, artists presentations,
workshops, interviews, and a 72 hours live AV performance.
