18th PICTOPLASMA Festival

International Festival of Character Design and Art

Visitors' Day and Character Market

The Pictoplasma Festival invites you to silent green on 18th September, where international illustrators and designers will present their work at the festival’s first ever Character Market. As an eclectic showcase of current visual trends and contemporary character designs, the Character Market enables the Berlin public to meet and exchange ideas with a creative community that comes together in silent green for the annual specialist conference, taking place in the days before. Prints, zines, comics, sculptures, editions, garments and other lovingly produced items will all be for sale!

The Character Market represents the current state of figurative design from the ground up; the event is conceived as an open format that hands over the stage to the makers of character design. Bad weather? silent green’s vast underground hall will be ready to accommodate everyone if needed! In the various buildings and out-spaces of silent green there will also be open creative workshops in which visitors of all ages can make something themselves. Discussions with festival artists will take place on an intimate stage, and crowning the day is a screening of 20 animated short films that promises to blow your mind!
