SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL 2019 – HEREAFTER
21 — 24 February 2019
Under the title HEREAFTER, Sonic Acts explored the genesis of our current crisis – what happens in the hereafter – by reflecting on the issues we are forced to confront on a daily basis: the inequalities caused by colonisation and geostrategic manoeuvring, the challenges brought forth by immigration and the climate crisis, the ever-present exploitation and precarity of the work force, and the way technological advancements disrupt and not emancipate – that is, the gooey mesh of global capitalism. In order to gauge the complexities and interconnections of this crisis and re-imagine a different reality, it is helpful to look back, re-evaluate and untangle the threads that encumber our thinking outside the sticky terrain of neoliberalism.
