In 2020, due to the pandemic, Pictoplasma was forced to cancel all IRL events and stream its first ever online edition, in Isolation, available for all and everywhere.

BERLIN VENUE

Obviously, given the pandemic, international events on a Picto-Uber-Festival-scale are simply not possible at the moment… 

As such, the admitted amount of attendees will be considerably more intimate and personal. The event will follow the governing rules of hygiene and social distancing and gather all activities at one very special venue: the vast and friendly premises of a former crematorium, now a beautiful, vibrant cultural venue, offering more than enough space for all conference talks, panels, animation screenings, workshops, exhibitions, delicious food & drinks – both inside and Open Air.

In other words: This will be Pictoplasma’s first ever exclusive character summer-camp!
