ABOUT
 
They took advantage of their feelings/ They rubbed their skin until their skin dissolved/ And fell on the floor as tales of nostalgia/ But the future is a better guide/ To the present than the past/ So they developed counter algorithms/To build and island called/ Suburbs of Utopia/ There will be free chocolate with caramel sea salt/Free health care and a thousand sexes/A universal basic income/And art that does not/ Refer to the familiar/ But to the New [INRA].

ARTISTS
 
CERA KHIN

… is a cutting edge Dj from Berlin via Tunis who plays whatever the fuck she wants. Bored of mindless club attitude and inspired by all kinds of Experimental sounds, Ambient bangers, Electro and Rave music, she makes people dance all over the world, hosts a monthly show at Noods Radio and recently launched the experimental label Lazy Tapes, a perfect sensory assault for those who like to drift, starting with the tape Guided Meditation on which she collaborated with Bristols future dub fellow Ossia.

UCC HARLO
… proposes sonic reconciliations between the old and the new and contemplates contemporary relationships to the natural world. A classically trained viola player and singer, many of her ‘ecclesiastical-wave’ sound projects use samples of her own performances of medieval, Renaissance, and baroque music as their starting point. Others begin from scratch and channel influences as disparate as new-age, left-field house, American minimalism, and early vocal polyphony. All dance around the venn diagram between eco-grief and wonder.

AUTO
… is an interdisciplinary duo (Judith S. Förster, Pia Achternkamp) presenting their latest piece “THE TIME IT TAKES TO MELT (MY HEART) a concert like performance about climate change. It is embarrassing.
 
//
 
WIZARD ASHDOD
… is Berlin based musician who is responsible for the most radical outcomes of his self proclaimed genre Romantic Drone Raga. He will perform an exclusive audiovisual show. 
 

 
//
 
ROBERT SIEG
… is a Berlin based film director and a hypercritical mind. He recently won the Meisterschüler-Award of G2 Kunsthalle Leipzig for his essay movie Der unsichtbare Teich. One of his is the question, why the future stopped to exist. He will screen his recent essay movie Things go wrong very slowly until they go very wrong very fast. It´s a critical reflection on the methods of production of the 21 century subject on biochemical, physical and aesthetic levels. // Homepage

INRA
… is a duo project by Adam Ben Nun and Philipp Rhensius: With a just intonation guitar, drums, field recordings and poetry to conjure a viscous yet danceable, meditative yet nervous sound. Drawing from clubmusic, free improvisation, drone, dub and sonic futurism they exhale an alienated ontology, haunted by the presence of the real and memories of the future. In May 2017 they contributed the soundtrack for the performance Transcultural Protocol by Admire Kamudzengere & Rachel Monosov that was shown at the Zimbabwe Pavilion at the Venice Art Biennale 2017. // Homepage
