STATE Festival 2016
Festival for open science,
art and society


STATE of Emotion
The Sentimental Machine

For its second edition, STATE Festival 2016 invites scientists, artists, makers, thinkers, doers and the curious public to come together and explore a scientific topic that is of our most personal concern: emotion.

Our science fueled festival program will combine engaging talks and discussions, thematic films, thought-provoking artworks and performances; with immersive visitor experiences, workshops, installations, and multiple hands on formats to engage with current scientific developments at the intersection of emotions research and artificial intelligence.
