Contemporary music as centre and point of departure for an exploration of the nature of time in life, art and theory.

A Festival for Time Issues – that is a place devoted to our most valuable resource: time. Time, understood as a dimension of experience equally accessible to each and every one. A phenomenon that resists reduction and definition. Time as a medium of music and the arts that transcends chronological and efficiency-oriented regimes.

But also: Time as an political category that determines the ways in which we live, work and produce – a concept und invention in service of ideological and economic interests; an instrument of power setting the beat and dictating the rhythm; a dimension of the imaginary that influences our vision of futurity and hence our freedom of action. Time as a notion of agency for contemporaries, individuals and societies.

We cordially invite you to share this time and this space – a garden of forking paths: concerts, performances, installations, film presentations and discourse formats revolving around our relation to time. Moments, we hope, that will stay with you; days and hours that pass by in a flash: times condensed, dilated, anachronous, accelerated, interrupted, stopped and wasted – shared and lived time.
