    B3 2020 - Truths

B3 2020 virtuale: Digitally and globally!

Film programme, exhibitions, conference programme and
events: online + analogue

Due to the pandemic, the 5th edition of the B3 is being launched as a worldwide hybrid format. The B3 main exhibition will be designed as a virtual tour featuring current positions in time-based media art and innovative projects from all moving image industries. The film programme and various conference formats will also be offered globally via digital tools (streaming, live chats, etc.). Parallel to this, selected events will be planned in analogue form, for example in the Astor Filmlounge Frankfurt.
The main B3 theme in 2020 is TRUTHS, tying in with last year’s REALITIES. In these days of heated discussions and information overload, it is important to question the truths that are presented to us and taken for real. Together with its guests and their works grouped into various program modules, B3 will again approach its main theme in socio-political, artistic, philosophical, scientific and economic ways. To quote George Orwell: “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
