20 years of Athens, Digital-Art Revolution
In what we call Technocene, technology has become our neo-environment, an ever-present force that permeates our lives, perceptions, and creative expressions. ADAF stands with unwavering belief in the transformative power of Technoscience—a realm where science and tech converge amplify human imagination thought art beyond traditional confines.

But technocene is not only a concept, but also a pulsating scene, hereby we named our 20th edition the “Techno(s)cene”

Over the past two decades, our festival has served as a crucible, nurturing a vibrant ecosystem of visionary artists who boldly embrace the digital medium. From humble beginnings, we have witnessed audacious experiments, from pixel manipulation, transcendent virtual realities, and immersive multisensory experiences. We have seen artists rewrite the rules, redefine artistic boundaries, and sculpt breathtaking digital landscapes that leave spectators in awe.

As we reflect on our journey, we celebrate the artists who fearlessly harnessed the full potential of the digital canvas. They wield code and digital mediums like paintbrushes, blending algorithms with emotion, creating masterpieces that challenge conventions and ignite the collective imagination. What we call the Techno(s)cene has breathed new life into art, redefining what it means to create and appreciate in the digital age.

Beyond artistic innovation, what we perceive as Techno(s)cene, has also became a sanctuary for diverse communities to gather and flourish. Through digital arts and the festival, we nurture inclusivity, providing a space for artists to express their truth, transcend borders, and reclaim their narratives. We believe in the power of art and technology to bridge divides, foster empathy, and ignite change.

As we enter this monumental year, we invite you to immerse yourself in the tapestry of wonders that is the Athens Digital Art Festival. Engage with interactive installations that blur the lines between the tangible and the virtual, and witness audiovisual performances that defy logic and ignite the senses. Discover the richness of the Techno(s)cene as it unfolds before you, revealing the vibrant palette of digital cultures that thrive in this transformative era.

Honoring pioneers who have graced our stages and the artists who dared to embrace the unknown, along with audiences who have passionately supported this revolution, let’s celebrate the evolution of the Techno(s)cene, as it continues to inspire, challenge, and redefine the boundaries of human creativity.
