MIRA festival is an international placeholder in the visual arts calendar bringing new creations, unexpected symbiosis, knowledge transfer and opportunities to ensure musical and visual artistic collaborations. It’s a cultural event that bases its proposal in three connected areas: exhibition, divulgation and education.
What differentiates MIRA from other festivals and cultural activities is the ability to interweave the visual and music elements to transform them into a unique and immersive experience for the public.
MIRA encourages collaboration, enables the emergence of new projects and supports relationships from collectives, associations and individuals linked with visual creation and technology, thus the non-profit organization feature and the volunteering participation make the outputs to be reinvested in promoting an attractive and sustainable culture.
MIRA Berlin, to be held on Saturday June 11 at the Funkhaus, a landmark building, former seat of the Democratic Republic of Germany’s radio, announced an important part of their programming. All shows of the first edition of the festival are characterized by an element of freshness, either because the artists present new album or because it is the first time they perform in the city. MIRA Berlin will be a day with more than 15 hours around digital arts.
MIRA Berlin will occupy three spaces in this magnificent historic building, symbol of German institutional design, located in the east of the city and next to the Spree river: the Kultursaal, the Recording Hall 1 and the Recording Hall 2. In addition, the MIRA Dome will be installed outside the enclosure.
In addition, MIRA Berlin will host an intensive three-day workshop (June 8, 9 and 10th ) focused on the creation and immersive 360 projection of Fulldome structures. The practical part of the workshop will be held at the MIRA Dome, installed outside the Funkhaus.
