The owners of a record player will easily relate to the concept of the Festival for Visual Arts and Contemporary Culture: sometimes it’s the unimposing “B” that is hiding the true gem of a vinyl record. B-Side is tracing these jewels that are prospering out of the limelight. The “B-Seite” festival risks a second look and does not refrain from placing the needle on the grooves that have gone unnoticed.
This non-commercial festival deals with all varieties of modern visual arts, explores media intersections and opens up new perspectives, a different way to look at new trends and developments. Video art, computer art, interactive projection and light design are the cornerstones of this event, discussions, lectures and workshops will complete the offering.
In 2016, the B-Seite festival is offering the 9th edition, featuring the biggest vj conference in Germany, great international guests und the common mix of performances, exhibition, parties and workshops.
The B-Seite festival is made in thankful collaboration with the cultural office of the City of Mannheim as well as the FilmCommision Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar and is aided by the City of Mannheim.
We are an annual festival around end of march in Mannheim, Germany.
