IN THE TIMES OF
The Pictoplasma Berlin conference usually attracts an audience of 900+ artists and producers from all over the world. Given the current pandemic, international events on this scale are unfortunately not possible to execute at this time. As such, the admitted audience in 2021 will be considerably smaller and will strictly follow the governing rules of hygiene and social distancing during the entire event.
As it currently stands, that means that we are only allowing a max of 250 attendees indoor at the main conference venue (using a capacity of 30% to allow for distant seating). The venue has excellent ventilation and will be sanitized during each break between lecture slots.
On the way to and from the seats, all attendees are required to wear a mask (FFP2). Admission to any of the inside activities also requires proof of testing (each day), full vaccination or recovery from Covid–19. This is the regulation currently in place.
Things might change, as they seem to do daily, so towards early August we will publish the then governing rules and an updated safety and hygienic concept for the conference on our website (and via email to all registered attendees).
Pictoplasma continuously works to keep the festival a welcoming, safe and friendly experience for all guests, staff, volunteers and artists. In other words, we do not tolerate threats of violence, unwelcome sexual attention, slurs or hate speech, including hurtful comments involving race, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, physical appearance, disability, age and religious or political belief, whether they are personal or general. Anyone asked to stop any harassing behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If you can’t help make the world (at least during our festival) a welcoming, harassment-free and supportive place for all characters and humans alike, Pictoplasma is not for you. Whoever violates these rules will be expelled from the festival and conference without a refund at the discretion of the organiser.
If the behavior of anyone makes you (or anyone else) feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible. Incidents can be reported to any member of festival staff or the festival and conference team at the info desks onsite, where we will be happy to help, contact security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe.
Pictoplasma is committed to values of diversity and accessibility for everyone.
We do our best to provide visitors access to all venues, rooms, events, information and services. Pictoplasma is, however, dependent on the infrastructure of the festival’s various venues.
FURTHER INFORMATION TO FACILITATE THE PARTICIPATION OF VISITORS WITH DISABILITIES
The main venue (Silent Green) is fully wheelchair accessible with wheelchair-accessible restrooms. Venue staff are there to help with mobility issues and elevator use.
However, some smaller parts of the exhibition and art interventions might be located in remote areas of the venue that are not accessible for wheelchair users.
VISITORS WITH HEARING IMPAIRMENT
Pictoplasma is a festival for visual culture, and many of the works presented in the exhibitions have no audio component. Anyone wearing hearing devices can switch to the channel of an audio induction loop broadcast for all lectures, screenings and the symposium at Silent Green. Unfortunately, we cannot provide sign language interpretation at this stage. Should you require further support or assistance, please get in touch with us in advance to make arrangements via help (at) pictoplasma (dot) com and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
VISITORS WITH PHOTOSENSITIVE EPILEPSY
Please note that some of the short films featured in the animation screenings have flashing effects that are potentially triggering to people with photosensitive epilepsy. Films with stroboscopic effects or rapid edits are marked with an icon in the printed screening programmes.
Between us, the Pictoplasma team shares a wide pool of languages – please ask our staff if you require assistance in a language other than English, and we will do our best to accommodate you. However, please note that Pictoplasma’s main festival and conference language is English.
We will have a dedicated contact person for support and assistance at the information desk of the main conference venue. This person can provide information about the accessibility situation at all festival venues as well as programme details relating to volume and lighting effects (stroboscope), or any other situations that could affect sensitive individuals. You are more than welcome to contact us anytime prior to the event at help (at) pictoplasma (dot) com with any questions you may have.
