In its interdisciplinary program, the Reference Festival addresses the issues of our time - the status quo as well as the future of the fashion and creative industries in particular. The festival is simultaneously aimed at industry and consumers. From January 21 to 23, 5 performances by the most relevant cross-format artists will be broadcasted from the Zeiss Planetarium to the Reference Realities virtual platform. The Reference Space in Schöneberg will turn into a setting for the showcase and an online experience for a global audience. This creates a common context from the work of artists, designers and collectors with varying approaches. The total of 15 activations also include a runway show and a moving installation in a public space.
As part of this edition of the festival, Reference Studios is launching a prize for up-and-coming designers in partnership with Slam Jam. Slam Jam acts as an incubator, while Reference Studios is primarily dedicated to press work. The registration for participation in the festival opens on Friday, January 15, 2021 at referencerealities.com.
