One year after Cry Baby brought its collaboration with the queer-feminist festival dgtl fmnsm to Leipzig, it’s time to enter into the 2nd round. Cry Baby finds a unique ally in dgtl fmnsm, which focuses on possibilities and challenges of feminism in this digital age.
The work PREMIUM CONNECT [REAL DEAL], by French-born Guyanese-Danish media artist Tabita Rezaire, takes us within a VR rendering of Google sea, where some internet users believe to have found the location of Atlantis. PREMIUM CONNECT envisions a study of Information and Communication Technologies, exploring African divination systems, the fungi underworld, ancestral communication and quantum physics to (re)think our information conduits. A panel discussion will follow a presentation of this work, presented by dgtl fmnsm in collaboration with Shawné Holloway.
The after show will feature the Congolese-Belgian visionary Nkisi. As co-founder of NON Worldwide, whose raison d'être is described as «a collective of African artists and of the diaspora, using sound as their primary media to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society and, in turn, distribute power.» Nkisi’s sets draw from a wide range of influences from industrial techno to the South African Gqom, providing a sound that is equally relentless and evocative.
Eterna is an up-and-coming artist from Barcelona whose music captures the frantic search for serenity and stimulation in today’s over-saturated digital landscape. He will perform the A/V project «Where Are U Children,» a collaborative work with Uc Ajin, plus new unreleased material. Support comes from two of the most exciting new DJs on the scene; AUCO, the fierce Berlin No Shade resident from London and sinosc, Dresden’s best kept secret young talent.
This event is the start of the 2nd edition of the dgtl fmnsm festival, which takes place in HELLERAU — Europäisches Zentrum der Künste Dresden from 16. – 18.03.
