A unique "TIME & PLACE"... Held annually since 2007, CYBERFEST is the first and biggest festival for technologically-based art in Russia. Growing over years to become a massive international event, CYBERFEST 2012 included more than 80 artists who exhibited throughout St Petersburg’s top institutions: The State Hermitage Museum, Peter and Paul Fortress, Kuryokhin Modern Art Centre, Creative Space TKACHI, Borey Gallery, Gallery of Experimental Sound and Art re. FLEX gallery. This year, 100+ innovators will participate in CYBERFEST 2013 in Berlin, marking the first time this important event has been held outside St Petersburg. This significant move was designed to strengthen the cultural exchange between Art and Technology creatives within Russia and their international counterparts.

CYBERFEST 2013: TIME & PLACE includes sound art, performances, film/video art screenings and public exhibitions embracing Berlin’s thriving Art/Tech community in addition to the city serving as its setting.

CYBERFEST 2013 was developed to offer a truly public cultural event for contemporary times by The WYE in collaboration with CYLAND Media Lab.

CYLAND houses the largest archive of Eastern European video art online, organizes exhibitions around the world and is the force behind CYBERFEST. Having grown into Russia’s largest annual New Media art event, CYBERFEST has been held throughout St Petersburg’s top art institutions: The State Hermitage Museum, Peter and Paul Fortress,Kuryokhin Modern Art Centre, Creative Space TKACHI, Borey Gallery, Gallery of Experimental Sound and Art re. FLEX gallery. The 7th edition of CYBERFEST will take place in Berlin, beginning the international expansion of this event which will hereafter travel to a new city each year. CYLAND was cofounded by Marina Koldobskaya and Anna Frants. www.cyland.org
