Audiovisual performances, installations, workshops and conferences take place at several venues around the city centre, where, among other things you can learn about and experience 3D and projection mapping. This year, the main hub of the event is once again the Le Commun cultural area, where the opening ceremony will take place on Thursday, 11 May at 6 p.m. The Mapping Festival is envisaged as a meeting point and creative platform and has already gained an international reputation as the only festival of its kind in Switzerland. Under the theme “Digital Shifts”, visitors can expect a varied festival programme this year, which includes a free exhibition. In this, the French working group Disnovation.org, who recently published an anthology on media piracy, will present their work daily from 11 a.m., led by Nicolas Maigret and Maria Roszkowska. Tickets for the Mapping Festival are available online on the website. Visitors can take advantage of a guided tour, from 2 to 4 p.m. on each of the three Saturdays.
