Under the heading HEREAFTER, the 2019 edition of Sonic Acts aims to explore the genesis of our current crisis – and what happens 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 posed by the climate crisis and immigration, the ever-present exploitation and precarity of the workforce, and the way technological advancements disrupts and not emancipates – that is, the gooey mesh of global capitalism. In order to gauge this complicated and entangled crisis and re-imagine something different, it is helpful to look back, re-evaluate and untangle threads that disable thinking outside of the sticky terrain of neoliberalism. From 21 to 24 February, Sonic Acts Festival 2019 takes place at various locations in Amsterdam, including Paradiso, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond, Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ and Arti et Amicitiae. Festival Passes and single tickets are now available via the Tickets page.
