At Taborkirche the opening night Artist Spotlight will be given by the multidisciplinary performance artist, DJ, and author Juliana Huxtable.

The 2019 programme addresses the valuation of time and work in relation to music, art and society, and examines the manifold meanings of ‘Overtime’ in an ever-changing global context. What is ‘Overtime’? What role does it play in our lives? Who benefits? The interdisciplinary festival programme features genre-defying international artists selected for their bold and innovative performance strategies and formats. Our conference addresses methods for artistic and personal self-preservation and advancement, community-building, institutional hacking, and grassroots organising, with music as a driving force for social justice and artistic innovation.
