ABOUT THE FESTIVAL AND THEME
SIMULTAN is a festival dedicated to media art and artistic experiment, which aims to create a bond between different media and encourage new and innovative forms of artistic expression, in the field of visual and sound art.
Based on a different theme every year, the festival presents video art projections, music live performances, interdisciplinary works, installations, lectures.

The 8th edition of the Simultan Festival will take place from October 11 to 13, under the theme
'The Beginning of The End' (TBOTE). This theme wishes to reflect upon the phenomenon 2012, which includes a set of cataclysmic or processing assumptions.
2012 is considered the year of changes, different Conspiracy theories were born about the apocalypse and the end of the world - those beliefs or speculations are related to the long Mesoamerican calendar, according to which a cycle ends in the history of Earth and mankind. A New Age interpretation of this transition would be that this date marks the beginning of a new era, a positive physical or spiritual transformation, abandoning reliance on the material level, allowing humanity to enter a new era, one of universal harmony.
