FIBER Festival 2020

September 24 – 27, Amsterdam


First Information


FIBER Festival is an Amsterdam based festival that showcases contemporary digital culture, audiovisual art, speculative design and forward thinking music culture to enhance other worldviews.

Through the lens of the arts the festival reflects upon the ever shifting impact of technology on society and the environment. We explore these topics collectively through lectures, installation art, performances and by learning from pioneering creative making-processes.

With the theme Instability the 2020 festival invites a new generation of interdisciplinary makers and thinkers, who each offer a new perspective on the relationship between humans and their environment. They create stories and experiences that invite us to question our position within the planet, addressing climate change and geological activities in new ways.

Join us for alternative perspectives on our radically instable 21st century world.

The Rest Is Noise: Jenny Hval + Félicia Atkinson (Postponed)

Jenny Hval presents The Practice of Love

The Practice of Love is a multidisciplinary immersion in music, literature and movement by Jenny Hval. Exploring sonic, visual and choreographic ideas while transforming voices, sounds and even bodies into texts, it investigates the connection between life and art, bringing together the possibility of creating art and relating to other people, while looking for empathy and a common language through speaking, singing and writing together.

The Practice of Love is co-produced by Black Box teater and Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival.

Location: Muziekgebouw (Amsterdam)
Date: Wednesday May 13, 2020


Félicia Atkinson (Live)

Soaking in the music of writer and sound poet Félicia Atkinson is an equally mind-altering experience. Exploring topics of improvisation, deep listening, ambient and language, her sources of inspiration are ‘‘women who wonder, dream, and create vacant spaces in their art.’’ Her haunting sound is a mixture of field recordings and ambient music, while using reverberations of gong, vibraphone and marimba to produce sonic landscapes that are both eerie and serene. In 2019 she released her latest album ‘The Flower And The Vessel’ to critical acclaim.

Dilettante (DJ)
Amsterdam based Dilettante will play before, in between and after the shows.
