Under the theme of Digital Pop, ADAF 2016 aims to capture the different aspects of Pop in the digital era and explore how our increasing engagement with new technologies and the Internet has generated new trends and habits. Pop is characterized by the culture of “here and now”.

Nowadays, Pop may be as well defined by likes, shares, tweets, views or followers showing in a way the power of the people to decide about trends and attitudes but also highlighting the ephemerality of it, as the culture around us is changing at high speed. 450 artists from 60 countries will present their works through a multifaceted programme that includes interactive and audiovisual installations, video art, web art, and creative workshops for both adults and kids, launching as well a new category, ADAF KIDS.
