“The Long Now” is a place for the enduring present, a space in which time itself can unfold, where the sense of time can take uncharted paths and get lost. A time bubble, separated, for an unending moment, from the clocked pace of the metropolis. A chronosphere to make space for each and everyone’s proper time.

With a duration of 30 hours, “The Long Now” constitutes the monumental closing event of MaerzMusik − Festival for Time Issues 2015. The project consists of concerts, performances, sounds installations, film and electronic live-acts by, amongst others, Morton Feldman, Phill Niblock, Leif Inge, Burkhard von Harder and Pierluigi Billone – a composition in space and time, sheltered by one of Berlin’s most impressive spaces: Kraftwerk Berlin.

Visitors are invited to enter this time bubble, to stay overnight, sleeping or otherwise, and surrender to this artistic borderline experience.
