This year’s theme at CLICK Festival is XENO. XENO means “guest” or “stranger”, but instead of seeing what is different and “other” from us as hostile to human existence, we together with a varied lineup of artists embrace otherness to speculate about new constructions of openness, of sustainable cohabitation in a world that is not exclusively for us. Letting otherness offer us a new viewpoint. Thus bio art, AI and ’otherness’ also defines the performances and installations at this year’s festival presenting following artists:
Opus et Domus / Maja Smrekar (SL), Silicium / Bjørn Svin & Carl Emil Carlsen (DK), The Ultimate Battle / Noora Hannula & The Nordic Beasts (DK/FI), Extremophiles and Holobiont / Jenna Sutela (FI), Black Quantum Futurism (US), HC^2 / Kulturværftet (DK), WorldWideWitches, Ritual and Technology / Johannes Paul Raether (DE), Autoportrait Dans Une Fourmilière and Traversée / Yann Marusich (CH), FAKA (ZA), Black Quantum Futurism (US), Carl Krull (DK), Mass / Recoil Performance Group (DK), L’enfant / Luo He-Lin & Chen I-Chun (TW) and Aquaphobia /Jakob Kudsk Steensen (DK).

CLICK Festival 2018 takes place from 19 – 20 May 2018 in Elsinore, Denmark.
CLICK Festival embraces the future by exploring the field between art, science and technology. Through concerts, exhibitions, talks, workshops and performances we conquer back technology to the arts and invite our audience to draw the new maps. By doing so CLICK introduces the whys, the whats and the wows of tomorrow. Now. CLICK is developed and produced at Kulturværftet in Helsingør, where the festival is being held.
The content is curated by a large co-operation of Danish and foreign competences of artists, scientists, students and professionals working with larger and smaller unions, educations and companies. These group members are elected and curated by the administrators of the festival program and hold a close dialogue to their respective networks.
