KALEIDOSCOPE and GOAT
25-28 June 2022
KALEIDOSCOPE and GOAT are excited to announce that after a three-year hiatus, the new edition of KALEIDOSCOPE Manifesto returns to Paris from June 25 to June 28. Opening during Men’s Fashion Week, the festival takes over one of the city’s most iconic modern architectural landmarks—the headquarters of the PCF (French Communist Party), designed by legendary Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
Against this unique setting, KALEIDOSCOPE Manifesto brings together visionary artists and creators from different areas of culture across three days of talks, workshops, installations and music performances.
The installations transform the building into a dream-like landscape populated by imagined creatures, negotiating the boundaries of human and machine, reality and fiction, contemplation and desire.
Meanwhile, the daily programming spanning art, fashion, architecture, music and film, interrogates what makes us “us,” and the forms of our individuality and our togetherness in the past, present and future.
