For two days, leading new media artists from around the world will gather at Watermans to present an explosive programme of digital performances and experiences, workshops and other interactive events.

This year’s Digital Weekender focuses on Body: how the definition of body has evolved with new technologies; how our relation to our bodies has changed in an age defined by technology; what our perception is of our own body when it’s augmented, modified or controlled by a digital device.

In a range of mostly free interactive events, we ask the Big Questions: come and discover the answers!

The Digital Weekender is an annual event at Watermans and offers an opportunity for Londoners to see the latest in digital arts and performance from some of the best and brightest artists on the scene. From a stone massage to dancer controlled by technology, from VR inspired by Kafka to robot-making, this year’s Digital Weekender has something for everyone.
