rhizom 2019

“a rhizome grows under the ground, under your feet. you are not witnessing the interconnection until it sprouts - wherever the soil is the most favourable."

the interdisciplinary festival named rhizom has developed out of a collective dedicated to cultivating alternative electronic music and arts. it commits itself to uniqueness, character, innovation, passion and diy-spirit.  

at the rhizom festival the social responsibility of culture and its consumers will be discussed and envisioned through readings, film, dance, music, video and installation art. untypical, organizational initiatives will be tested. gathering moments will allow connection for further creation. the rhizom will sprout.

“rhizomatic sonic practice mutates forms, continuously readapting itself. it shakes stagnating grounds with the power of movement, hijacks gravity into a horizontal choreography of equal bodies and polyrythmic interdependency.“

discourse

the discursive part of the rhizom festival as re-appropriation. we invite you to our discussions, workshops and lectures and the exhibition "urban tribes" at the shedhalle.

we take back the discussion to where we like to have them: back to real life. cybertalks can wait. anti-fake news in a conscious and aware environment where every-body has the opportunity to be part of it. no borders, no elitism, profound and well researched. a re-appropriation, post gender, post genre, self organized and non profit. music as a part of our culture and culture as a part of our music.

the third issue of the rhizom congress will be at the same time as the music programm. we invite you to be part of the circles, discussions and workshops.

we invite you especially to the opening ceremony on saturday evening which will also be the opening of the exhibition urban tribes curated by Irma Hirsl.

“the focus on the conceptual practice was dominant in the last 30 years. over time, it begun to coquette exclusively with museum spaces, narcissistically enjoying its academic importance. eventually, the conceptual art was transformed into a mostly cold, sterile, intellectual masturbation. these artists are introducing us to the world of fantastic, bursting fantasy that proffers different aspects, treatments and realities at a very suggestive manner and communicates with the public directly, never leaving it indifferent or cold. their works of art provoke consciousness and subconsciousness, they are not disposable or easy to forget. they give us another chance to rediscover and find out new structures, new meanings and messages. we meet again the art that corresponds to the private space with the intimacy of a domestic contemplation within the everyday life.“ radovan hirsl, the wanton babylon

the organisers have decided that there will be no fix entry price. each participant is free to decide what amount they are willing or able to pay. we recommend an entry-price of chf 20.00/day. no physical tickets will be sold. get a stamp at the box office.

prix libre?
the collective is convinced that no one should renounce to culture and entertainment because of financial limitations. the prix libre concept encourages people to reflect about which components are relevant to them, when it comes to putting a price on something. for example: the appreciation of the work done for the festival, the support of the project, the expenses involved or the idea of making culture and entertainment accessible for all. it also enables a fair and equal pricing, adjusted to one’s individual resources, and empowers all participants.

the prix libre allows the organisers to create a festival without being profitable, without imposing pricing views on participants and to distance themselves from the value society imposes to human labour.
