What is FIBER Weekends?

FIBER Weekends is a new, decentralized art event in Amsterdam. It presents state-of-the-art developments in art, design, electronic music and technology.

The programme takes place on two days – Friday 23/11 and Saturday 1/12 – and encompasses an audiovisual concert, daytime conference and club & performance night.


Focused on the theme ‘Sensing Beyond | Beyond Sensing’, FIBER Weekends 2018 explores complex technological systems and ungraspable natural phenomena through sensory experiences, and questions our understanding of them in today’s and tomorrow’s society.

Through the lense of the arts, FIBER explores new and weird ways of understanding the world.


With Sensing Beyond | Beyond Sensing – Performing the Space Between Human and Alien, FIBER investigates the ‘act of art and performance’ presenting alternative ways to make ‘sense’ of the complex and often alienating world of today. Advanced simulation technologies, algorithms and AI systems propel human activity into alien terrain and dimensions.

At the same time – in the middle of an impending climate crisis – we slowly come to terms with the need to fundamentally reconnect human activities with other living and nonliving beings.

Moving from the hyperreality of advanced computer graphics, to our radically changing experience of time and space created by algorithms and AI, to the existential question: what does ‘life’ mean on other planets?

FIBER Weekends invites you to experience the search for new ways of sensing, building and knowing the world.

OT301 – Club & Performances 1/12

The OT301 is one of Amsterdams finest places and stages for experimental and subculture music, art and cinema programmes (and a lot more). Started in 1999, when the building was squatted by a group of artists, they now offer an important artistic platform for music, club and art events.

We present our Club & Performance progamme at OT301.
