GIF Weekender

Hotel

A GIF can say more than a thousand words and these moving images are now more popular than ever. Nowadays they pop-up on your screens daily, but are rarely present in an offline environment. This weekend Volkshotel is all about this popular form of digital art that has inspired a new generation of artists to create work and celebrate the comeback of GIF art. A whole weekend full of GIF madness containing a GIF exhibition, a talk by The WOW and more.

// EXHIBITION -The GIF That Keeps On Giving
The exhibition is hosted by Daniel and Vincent, two friends who have been collecting GIFs for over more than 4 years now. They will show you the best GIFs their archive has to offer, from pop-art to graphic, glitch and cinematographic images. Grab a drink at the bar, wander around and discover contemporary GIF art.
