About the Exhibition

The exhibition “4th FAB Dimensional 2023“ is a showcase for animated art outside the cinema, and beyond the familiar framework of linear films. The medium of animated film per se offers many interfaces to other artistic media such as sculpture, game or installation in its production process and approach.

FAB Dimensional seeks to showcase different approaches to bring animation into the physical space, to initiate interaction with the audience and to invite everyone to marvel at the possibilities animation opens up. The exhibited artworks shall be of such kind, that they cannot be shown in a classical cinema setup.

About FAB

The Festival of Animation Berlin (FAB) brings the world of animated film to Berlin and opens up new horizons for filmmakers and culture enthusiasts. For the past 6 years, the festival has been setting new priorities and developing new formats and ideas at each edition.
FAB is a platform for intensive artistic and interpersonal exchange, for learning and reflection, for getting to know new techniques or films and for working on a diverse view of our world. In 2023, the festival will take place in two locations: City Kino Wedding (@ Müllerstraße 74) and silent green Kulturquartier (@ Gerichtstraße 35).
