Co-curated by Job Sifre, this club night will be the official afterparty of We Are Warming Up Festival. Since electronic music and nightlife were born as a counter culture, we believe the scene can play a more prominent role in addressing the theme of the festival: climate change. Expect a punk-like approach to line-up and art: next to sound smashers Parrish Smith, Job Sifre and angelboy, the evening will showcase Esther van der Heijden's video essay ‘A Flood Wipes Out’. The work explores different visual representations and narratives on climate change, and their roles. What is included and what is left out in these methods of visualizing, and therefore perceiving?
About We Are Warming Up Festival
We Are Warming Up is a multi-day festival in Tolhuistuin revolving around climate change and specifically the role of art and music in this topic. Warming Up develops, (co)produces and presents art and entertainment projects around climate change, focused on systemic change: not just tech solutions, but primarily focused on social justice. Unlike everything else, art provides a safe space for imagining, experimenting and practising new ways of dealing with the world.
