Dear All. 2019 comes to an end and we are glad to be able to announce the next festival edition for 2020. It is official: NODE Forum for Digital Arts will be happening in October 2020 in Frankfurt. We got the locations and the date. So please save the date and equip yourself with patches, projects, questions, presentations.


NODE Forum for Digital Arts in its sixth edition invites you to become part of a week long creative exploration of technologies. Our long term partner Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and other locations will turn into vibrant hubs for open exchange, hands-on experiments and reflection combining an exhibition, creative coding workshops with vvvv, a symposium, AV performances, laboratories, artist talks and engaging debates.

Within the next month, we will be developing the professional program together with the community around the visual programming environment vvvv. So, you can expect the finest and most relevant workshops and masterclasses to learn about creative coding techniques from experts and new talents from the international digital art scene. As usual, we will focus on vvvv, but also invite other communities to plugin to the program to foster exchange and skills and support social and technical integrations from community to community and software to software.

Together with Mousonturm and other international partners, we are developing the discursive and cultural program. We will soon release our next leitmotif that shall be reflected within the community program, exhibition, lectures, talks and labs – so stay tuned for the open call to contribute with your ideas and projects!

Become part of our open community of designers, artists and technologists and join us for NODE 2020!

What should I do next?

You may start making travel arrangements as the date is fixed. It makes sense to think of Thursday 1st or Friday 2nd as the arrival date and to plan your trip back home on October 9th earliest so we can have a final party on the 8th. We will be releasing the tickets soon. If you have questions don’t hesitate to contact us via!

In the meantime watch that video from the previous edition and get into the mood.
