The festival centre is located in the Altstadtmarktpassage - Hauptstraße 55 - in the middle of Erlangen's old town.

The group exhibition ‘Dark Patterns’ shows artistic strategies that deal with the beautiful surface, the dark forces underneath and the associated despair in order to find a foothold in a disintegrating reality. The exhibition can be visited from the opening until the end of the festival. The opening will be followed by a discussion with the artists in the festival centre.
