Sonic Acts Academy: Early Bird Tickets Available
Get your early bird tickets for the Sonic Acts Academy which will take place from 26 till 28 February 2016 now. The Academy will take place every two years, alternating with the bi-annual Sonic Acts festival. The Academy is offering thought-provoking new perspectives on the research into art, the research needed for art and especially research through art. The Academy relates to topics that are connected to the ‘dark matter’ theme Sonic Acts is currently investigating with its projects such as Dark Ecology and The Geologic Imagination, informed by the realisation that we live in the Anthropocene, and questioning how this forces us to rethink concepts of nature, culture, technology, and ecology. In the weeks preceding and following the Academy, we will hold masterclasses and workshops for artists, curators, students, theorists and cultural practitioners. The opening of Sonic Acts Academy itself takes place on Friday, 26 February, at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and is followed by a symposium; two days of lectures, presentations and films screenings at the Brakke Grond, a new location for Sonic Acts. On Saturday, 27 February, Sonic Acts will take over Paradiso’s main and small halls with concerts and performances, lasting until the small hours. A limited amount of early bird passe-partouts are for sale now for a discounted price of € 50,- There is also a discounted option for students and those 65 years and older for € 40,- Tickets are now available here. We also offer professional accreditation, please see this page to find out more.
