COSMOS AND CHAOS
CYFEST, one of the biggest international media art festivals in Eastern Europe, was founded by a group of independent artists and curators in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 2007. Since its inception, CYFEST’s main concerns have been to examine the dialogue between new and traditional visual languages and to show technological achievements via artistic transformation. CYFEST unites art professionals, artists, curators, educators and thinkers, programmers, engineers, and media activists all over the world, and expands contemporary art, intertwining it with various disciplines of science and technology.
The festival program includes several exhibition projects, sound art, video and educational programs.
In accordance with the current anti-Covid rules and regulations, to visit festival events you will be asked to provide a QR code which should confirm that you either had a negative PCR test (valid for 72 hours after being registered), you were vaccinated by a vaccine recognized by the Russian authorities (non EU vaccines are recognized at the moment), that you have had Covid-19 in the past 6 months (should be registered in the Russian system gosuslugi.ru).
