Are you open to think outside the existing genres and go off the beaten track, are you curious to the world we live in, to the pioneers with a vision on the present and future and yearn to see how they express both their fascinations and their frustrations? Make sure you'll be there. Also when you don't live in The Hague.
Selected by: Tina Farifteh, Film and art curator

Returning for the fifteenth time, the annual TodaysArt Festival showcases a groundbreaking, weekend-long programme at the intersection of art, music, technology, and science. During this year’s anniversary edition you will be treated to an exhibition in a spectacular former powerplant, audiovisual performances, club nights and a context programme with radical local and international thinkers.

On Friday and Saturday from 12:00 to 00:00 the main location of the festival is De Elektriciteitsfabriek with the exhibition Consciousness as well as the context programme in Zaal 3 right next door. From 18:00 to 00:00 the audiovisual performances take place at Theater aan het Spui, followed by the club programme to finish the day at Paard between 00:00 and 06:00.

The Curators and ambassadors of We Are Public have delved into the programme to get you started. David Veneman’s absolute favourite of the exhibition is Machine Hallucinations: Architectural Studies by Refik Anadol. Tina Farifteh suggests Interface I by Ralf Baecker. And if it’s up to Inez de Coo you should definitely pay a visit to NEST, next to Zaal 3 and De Electriciteitsfabriek, for MYBODY.COM. Other highlights for Friday:
