This year, we celebrate 25 years of the Sonic Acts festival with an edition dedicated to the topic Hereafter. It is as much a speculative position as it is, as always, a reality-check and an urgent call to rethink and act on the significant problems we are facing today. With this ‘we’, we are addressing an inclusive and generous community with shared values and which explores possibilities for new models of working and living together. We need to be looking at the bigger picture – the global crisis, from climate change to neo-fascism, unfolding in all directions – and trying to figure out what might, could, or should happen in the hereafter. Therefore we have invited over 120 artists and theorist to share their visions and thoughts on the possibilities for survival beyond this neoliberal catastrophe. The full scope of issues we are discussing during the festival – taking place from the start of February until early March 2019 – is very much represented and palpable in the tone of this year’s festival publication, or ‘the reader’, a coalescing of contributions from the festival’s conference speakers, performers, filmmakers, and other participants.
