Pixelache festival will be held in Puristamo in Cable Factory, Pannu Hall in Dance House Helsinki, in 8–17th of June 2023. The festival will arrive to Dance House Helsinki on Saturday 17th of June with five performances.

Pixelache Festival will explore the idea of glitch as a possible tactic for resisting oppressive social systems. How can we disrupt the code? The festival will examine this question using artistic strategies and tools; creating through open source, copying, pasting, sharing, distributing, remixing, and sampling.

When the system normalizes injustice, the glitch can be a momentary interruption of the normality. The error can dismantle the norm by resisting to accomplish its function or definition. The error and disruption moved by a desire for re-appropriating and subverting the codes. A festival as a situation for experimenting with technologies that can be used to contaminate, mutate or mediate diverse languages and life situations. The public program consists of audiovisual performances, workshops, and an exhibition with local and international artists, researchers, and activists.

All events are free entrance.
