The 18th edition of the SIMULTAN Festival with will take place between 5-8 of October 2023 in Timișoara and aims to explore and question various aspects of society and individual life influenced by technology, to delve into speculative situations, and to disrupt the standardized image of the future, the cult of progress, and infinite development. From the personal to the social and political, philosophical, and existential, the festival seeks to highlight how artists respond to some of the major challenges of our times and their relationship with the media, how they document change, and how they envision the future.
