Recap Movie


The Retune Festival is a biennial event at the intersection of art, design, and technology. In its fifth edition, Retune will bring together more than 500 intrepid minds across 2 days.

Day 0 / 26. September: Warm Up evening from 19h taking place at Sehsucht (Schönhauser Allee 149, 10435 Berlin). Pass by, meet your fellow festival goers, grab a beer and get your festival bag!

Day 1 / 27. September: Conference Day with keynotes, talk and panel discussions, performances and installations, taking place at Silent Green (Gerichtstraße 35, 13347 Berlin). The day is moderated by Alexandra Wolf & Fernanda Parente from Selektor and Christian Zöllner from The Constitute.

Day 2 / 28. September: Satellite Day with workshops, studio visits, exhibitions and a closing party taking place all over Berlin.

The Festival is a “think-and-do-tank” and explores the speculative futures of our digital society. Internationally renowned creatives , researchers, and engineers working on latest technologies will share their inspirational insights in talks and panels. Get your hands on in workshops and experiment with future ideas and technologies. Experience and immerse yourself into digital art with installations, exhibitions and performance. And exchange with interdisciplinary creative pioneers.

Expect a whole lot of design friction, glitched visions and real future shit.
