Shorts Attack: Sex and insanity

Shorts Attack: Sex and insanity

Sex sells. Everybody knows that. Once I heard that two things rule this world, one is money and the other is sex. I like to think that other emotions and things are more important, but this affirmation may be true if we look around. In any case, sex is something that interest everybody. Is healthy, is pleasant, is funny and good for your skin as some people say. But it has also its dark side, can be used as a way of power or get people addicted to it. A new…

This is how Alien Disko sounds

This is how Alien Disko sounds

Last weekend we went to the Alien Disko festival, an event from outer space for music lovers of all kinds. The second edition was plenty of different styles, as it was the first edition. If you wanted to hear something different and to let yourself go in melodies, sounds, noises, beats, and, in the end, music, that was your perfect festival. African sounds, electronic music, rock, indietronica… if we were dancing on another planet, maybe this would be the soundtrack. The night of the Friday began with Drahla, a band…

Alien Disko # 2

Alien Disko # 2

We were really lucky to assist to the first edition of Alien Disko last year. A festival curated by The Notwist can’t be disappointing, on the contrary, you are going to discover some of the most amazing bands on the planet Earth. And probably of the universe, because, believe me, some of the artists you will see seem from another planet, in the best sense of the word. If the last year we enjoyed the incredible performances of Sun Ra Arkestra, Stargaze, Tenniscoats, Joanna Gruesome and The Notwist themselves, this year…

Contact Festival

Contact Festival

If you love techno and electronic music, we have a very good news for you. This weekend Contact festival is celebrated in Munich. That means an impressive line-up consisted of DJs and live music during day and night. If you like to see the sun (or in the case of Munich these days see just light) you can choose just going to the festival during the day. On the contrary, if you are more like an owl and you enjoy the mysteries of the night, you can also choose just…

Specters of Communism: A Festival on the Revolutionary Century

Specters of Communism: A Festival on the Revolutionary Century

It is undeniable that the communist legacy is present still today in art, fashion, philosophy and other disciplines.

This festival is organized in five series: “After all the Failures…

Literaturfest

Literaturfest

No matter if it is fiction or it’s real. It has to be a good story. The narratives that invade our daily life sometimes can be perceived as inventions or something that can’t be true. But sometimes, it is. What is authenticity? What is our discourse in social media? What are the traditional media telling about what is going on in the world? The movie director Doris Dörrie raises this questions about literature and stories among what is true and what is the untruth at the Literaturfest 2017. She is the curator of…

Spielart Festival

Spielart Festival

Some people may think we consume culture nowadays in a passive way. But somehow, watching a film, enjoy a theatre play or listen to some music can be something that makes us take action and becoming active individuals. We can take part of the works of art with our constructions and make them something revealing for us and other people. Spielart is a theatre festival celebrated every two years with its focus on Asia and South Africa in this edition. From 27th of October until 11th of November we will…
