Athens Digital Arts Festival, in collaboration with the Hellenic Ministry of Culture & Sports, presents for the Greece – China Year the special event #PostFuture Dialogues. Aiming to create a cultural dialogue between Greece and China, ADAF focuses on how Chinese artists experience the transcendence of the digital culture, under this year’s theme #PostFuture.
Including installations, indoor and outdoor screenings as well as a tribute to Microwave International New Media Arts Festival (HK), ADAF creates a rich programme, introducing to the Greek audience well-known as well as emergent artists from China.
Moreover, Athens Digital Arts Festival curates and presents a special compilation of video art and animation within Microwave International New Media Arts Festival programme in late September.

Future X Imagination
This is a compilation from VMAC (Videotage Media Art Collection), which features a series of works regarding posthumanity and the imagination of future life. “Posthuman” could refer to a person or an entity that exists in a state beyond human, or as a human with extraordinary intelligence; no matter what, the concept raises loads of questions regarding ethics, social systems and communications, and carries these questions projecting our imaginary future lives. This compilation includes an android couple questioning their love & relationship, the birth of the fastest vehicle on the planet, underwater life, etc. Starting from here, all the imagination within makes us question reality.
