More good news:
If you happen to be in or close to Berlin during the festival, but don't feel like the entire treatment, there are several risk-free occasions for you to randomly dip in and out.
All animation programs will be on rotation at the venue's second screen and await you during the entire Festival whenever you're ready.
You can also get your fix at the saturday night character overdose party on the 10th of April. Simply find your way to the .HBC, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 9, and starting from 10 pm you'll be embraced by characters mingling to the sound of Jackson & his computer band, Purita D and a live performance by Krach der Roboter.
Additionally, on Thursday the 8th, around 6 pm, you can join us for the pre-festival opening of "Pen to Paper" at the gallery artSPACE, Linienstrasse 109. The exhibition offers an exquisite selection of original work by artists such as Allyson Mellberg Taylor, Andrew James Jones, Ian Stevenson, Yu Matsuoka and many more. A show by the very same artists (including an exquisite wall drawing by Shoboshobo) is still on view until April 23 at the great Concrete Hermit in London, after which it travels to Paris Galerie LJ, so if that's your respective home turf, please go and enjoy.
