BINAR 2019

November 21st-24th, 2019

Art. Design. Technology.

The first edition of BINAR, a project by The Institute and inspired by UniCredit Bank, will take place between 21th and 24th of November.

BINAR showcases new media projects presented previously at some of the biggest international events and festivals such as Sundance Film Festival, Ars Electronica, Athens Digital Arts Festival etc., and also exhibited in renown cultural spaces such as Centre Pompidou in Paris.

More than 50 interactive installations, algorithmic art, virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D projections and video-mapping reunited in a single exhibition concept powered by The Institute in collaboration with Dilmana Yordanova (KOTKI visuals).

BINAR aims to index and promote the new media scene in Romania – artists, designers and promoters of digital arts – while showcasing local projects through an annual event open to the public.

BINAR exhibition will take place in the historical building that used to host Cina restaurant (George Enescu Square), in the Creative Quarter, Bucharest.

The opening event will take place on Thursday, November 21st, starting 7 PM. Free entry.

Between 21:00 and 22:00 we will enjoy a unique mix of music and technology: live act by Mischa Blanos. Part of the new wave of neoclassical music scene, Mischa Blanos brought a new vibe to contemporary music, transforming his piano by integrating it intro a perfect setup including drum machine, electronics and a computer.

The night will continue with Nipple’s Delight & Romansoff and the entire opening event will be completed by an interactive light show by H3.
