Signal Festival will take place from Thursday 13 October to Sunday 16 October in the streets of Prague.
In the last 10 years, the festival has attracted more than 3 million visitors and helped to create 90 original works of art, supporting the youngest generation of Czech artists.
Although the venues are not always the same, in the past they have included Republic Square, Old Town Square (Kinsky Palace), Rudolfinum, Shooters Island, National Theatre, Kampa Park, Peace Square and Prague Castle. Lately, they’ve gone out to Karlin as well and instead of a start and finish they now have different circuits.
“This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary and we will offer videomappings, new installations and venues, world-known artists, projections, live shows, talks, and many new collaborations. We’re not gonna reveal the official program just yet, but you can take a little sneak peak,” says festival director Martin Pošta.
“Thanks to the newly established international cooperation, we will be able to bring you more inspiring artists from all over the world, especially in the field of digital and new media. You will get the opportunity to see the works previously exhibited in world-class galleries in Berlin, New York, London, or Lisbon,” he added.
The last edition focused on environmental issues, sustainability and the relationship between humans and planet Earth.
Last year, Signal prepared unique augmented reality installations. You can still visit Signal AR, daily from 8 am to 7 pm in Karlín.
There are a total of 5 audiovisual installations. Just download the Signal Festival app on your phone. Then log in via email and check if your phone supports AR core – the app will show you the AR section if it does.
Then head over to Karlín, where you can scan the Signal sign and start exploring the unique art hidden in augmented reality.
