About DA Z

A Global Community of Digital Art.

In spring 2020, an ambitious international festival for digital art will be held in Zurich for the first time: DA Z – Digital Art Zurich. DA Z is dedicated exclusively to digital and crypto forms of the avant-garde visual art.

The DA Z festival shall return annually in early May: Exhibitions, installations, interventions, video screenings, performances, music events and talks at various locations in Zurich’s inner city. Many events will take place in Kreis 4 and 5, Zurich’s art and nightlife district, the area of creative and high tech business around the Zurich University of Arts ZHdK.

A special feature of the DA Z and distinguishing it from other digital festivals is its exclusive focus on art. This means that social issues are not to be addressed in symposia or podium events, but solely in the forms of expression of digital art.

DA Z is an initiative of DA/S (Digital Arts and Sciences Switzerland Association)
