The programme of MaerzMusik 2019 is online!

This year’s festival edition will focus on history and historiography as phenomena of contemporary politics. In more than 30 concerts, performances, film screenings, exhibitions and discursive events, new works by Jennifer Walshe and Timothy Morton, Olga Neuwirth, Justė Janulytė, George E. Lewis and Elaine Mitchener will be presented to the audience. In addition to the discursive programme “Thinking Together” and the iconic “The Long Now”-event at Kraftwerk Berlin, the festival will focus on the media history of music’s avant-garde of the 1950s to the 1990s in its project “Tele-Visions”. Even if – or perhaps exactly because – we may be living in “bad times for history” (Berno Odo Polzer), we’re looking forward to the 2019 edition of MaerzMusik!
