FRICTION presents: the first performance & art festival in Perla-Mode. April 2013. REALITY CHECK!

In April, FRICTION transforms the independent artspace Perla-Mode into a place between art and reality. Everything will be possible. What is a game? What is art? What is reality? We perform the REALITY CHECK and ask whether art can become reality and how reality becomes art. To tackle these questions, we have invited 48 artists to show their work in Perla-Mode.

What to expect

FRICTION is interested in projects, that are encounters between the artist and the visitor and allow for the unexpected to happen. The festival REALITY CHECK focuses on interdisciplinary projects, that position themselves on the edge of fiction and reality.

How you make REALITY CHECK happen!

It requires a lot of work to offer so many artists the space and opportunity to perform and exhibit. We are working for free to make this festival a reality, and so are the artists.

Even an underground festival cannot come to life without some money though. Your support will go towards the infrastructure in Perla-Mode (electronics, tools, etc.), promotion of the festival and artists (printing flyers, posters, etc.) and other material. Support us and the artists to make this festival happen.
