Geneva will welcome the 15th edition of the Mapping Festival from May 23 to May 26. A unique platform of diffusion in Switzerland, the festival is now considered as a major event in the field of digital art and enjoys an international reputation. Each year, the festival offers a rich variety of events and activities which bring to light the artistic potential of new technologies: workshops, audio-visual performances, exhibition, live, round tables, panel, DJ sets, etc. The festival is really one of a kind. Plus, this year, most events are free or “pay-what-you-want”.

The Mapping Festival was founded by Boris Edelstein, creator of Modul8 in 2005. The VJing computer program has since then become an emblematic software used by thousands of people around the world. As for the festival, it was an immediate success and flourished very quickly.
