Organized by The NODE Institute, the TouchDesigner Roundtable Berlin is the meeting point for creatives and developers who work with the visual development platform TouchDesigner as well as everybody who is curious about the world of interactive media art and the people behind it.
In its 24th edition, we embark on an immersive journey into the vibrant core of West Berlin: POP Kudamm presents itself as a haven for cultural diversity and the exploration of a unified future. Nestled within the dynamic interplay of business, art, research, intellect, and branding, POP epitomizes the essence of “Place of Participation.” Designed by the esteemed GRAFT Architects, this temporary architectural gem finds its home on Berlin’s renowned shopping boulevard, mere steps away from the Kurfürstendamm U-Bahn Station.
