The world’s leading and largest festival of contemporary character design and art returns with artist lectures, workshops, animation screenings, exhibtions, performances and parties.

This April, the annual Pictoplasma Fesival once again attracts a worldwide scene of artists, illustrators, animators and producers to celebrate character design. By engaging the viewer on a direct emotional level, visual characters have emerged to be the key players in today’s visual communication, whether in graphic design, advertisement, animation, fine and urban arts, installation, fashion and performance. Starting with the first edition in 2004, a growing audience has been following Pictoplasma around the globe, from Berlin to New York and Argentina.
The lively exchange between the various disciplines highlights the importance of characters in contemporary visual culture.
The Pictoplasma Festival 2011 will involve more than 50 international artists and attract over 600 international conference attendees, while open exhibitions and parties appeal to a large local audience – turning Berlin into the world’s epicentre of all things character.
