Music is an essential element of celebration. It exhilarates and changes everything. The revelers listen, dance, place themselves in the limelight, drift, or forget themselves and the world. On the occasion of the THE FEST exhibition, we are inviting Electric Indigo to talk about music and her work. The music producer, DJ, and founder of the network platform female:pressure has been transforming spaces around the world with electronic music for the last 30 years and will spend an evening in the MAK talking about her experience as a musician in the context of celebrations.
We need to talk! The MAK starts the new art education format Conversation Pieces. We will speak with artists, activists, scientists, and personalities from various fields about select objects from the MAK Collection. Conversation Pieces is dedicated to themes like diversity, feminism, participation or loneliness, symbiotic bodies, racism in collections, planet care, and much more. We use the MAK as a polyphonic place for the exchange of ideas and to engage in various sociopolitical discourses and problems that enable new perspectives on an extraordinary collection. Conversation Pieces can be understood as an impetus to make widespread pictorial worlds and narratives visible and to critically question them by talking about them together.
