The owners of a record player easily relate to the concept of the Festival for Visual Arts and Contemporary Culture: sometimes it’s the unimposing “B” that is hiding the true gem of a vinyl record. B-Side is tracing these jewels that are prospering out of the limelight. The “B-Seite” festival risks a second look and does not refrain from placing the needle on the grooves that have gone unnoticed.
This non-commercial festival deals with all varieties of modern visual arts, explores media intersections and opens up new perspectives, a different way to look at new trends and developments. Video art, computer art, interactive projection and light design are the cornerstones of this event, discussions, lectures and workshops will complete the offering.
In 2012, the B-Seite festival is celebrating the 5th edition. Featuring the 4th Vj Konferenz in South Germany, great international guests under the common mix of performances, exhibition, parties and workshops.
The B-Seite festival is made in thankful collaboration with the cultural office of the City of Mannheim as well as the Film Commision Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar and is aided by the City of Mannheim.
During the Festival it will be also presented the XI edition of LPM
