Festival: Rewire 2023 – Art & Discourse Programme Highlights, δημοσίευση στο CLOT Magazine [26/3/2023]
Rewire, the annual international festival for adventurous music, is returning to Den Haag, Netherlands, with its 12th edition, bringing together a wide range of musical and interdisciplinary performances, specially commissioned works, club nights, installations, talks, and screenings. From 6 to 9 April 2023, Rewire will present forward-thinking and genre-bending music across various venues.
The final art and discourse programme has just been announced and, similarly to other years, consists of an exhibition, extensive talks, film screenings, and workshops.
Rewire and iii collaborate again to bring Proximity Music: Visceral Acts. This is the 3rd year that the festival and the artist-run community platform (that supports new interdisciplinary practices linking performance, technology and the human senses contribute to the exhibition programme). The programme seeks to connect music, architecture, technology, ritual, and play through physical experiences engaging with all the senses.
In their curatorial statement, curator Matteo Marangoni states: Proximity Music: Visceral Acts is an exhibition inviting us to engage playfully with mind and body. Presenting a diverse range of works emerging from the backdrop of a health crisis, it brings into question ideas of health and sanity. Through the lens of personal, creative, if not unorthodox approaches, artists help us trace paths backwards and forwards in time, connecting with different forms of knowledge.
In Proximity Music: Visceral Acts, the exhibiting artists will present works that play with materials, technologies and rituals associated with health and healing. While advancements in the medical world have made it possible to cure better than ever, its treatments have become increasingly scary. The exhibition aims to reflect on our relationship to health and the power of art, music and ritual to transform our consciousness.
