Sonic Acts 2019 - Hereafter
Celebrating 25 years of the Sonic Acts festival, this publication is dedicated to the theme of Hereafter. Both a reality check and an urgent call to rethink and act on the significant problems we are facing today, more than 120 artists and theorists addressed the theme, invited to share their visions and thoughts on the possibilities for survival beyond our current neo-liberal catastrophe in the epoch of the Anthropocene. The festival reader collects a selection of these contributions from conference speakers, performers, filmmakers, and various participants. Rather than looking back on a quarter century of the festival, it is devoted to confronting the concerns raised by its numerous participants.
