The 18th Athens Digital Arts Festival was held in Kotzia Square

ATHENS – The 18th Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAFis) will be held at Kotzia Square in central Athens from May 25-29.

The thematic title of the festival “FutuRetro”, focuses on science fiction, retrofuturism and futurology, according to the organizers.

Works covering twelve key aspects of digital arts are presented this year: video art, animation, interactive installations, virtual & augmented reality, games, digital image, web art, live performances, workshops, debates, and even ADAF KIDS, a mini digital arts festival dedicated to children. In addition, this year the festival will also present a program organized in the ADAF MUSIC category.

Marking its third year as a hybrid festival, the online edition of the festival, ADAF ONLINE, will launch in fall 2022.

The main exhibition is held in the complex of buildings where the NotosHome department store was housed from 2003 to 2018 in Kotzia Square, opposite the Municipal Headquarters of the City of Athens, Athinas Street, and spans 12,000 square meters of interior space.

In addition, several installations and events will take place outside in the square during the festival.
