Dystopia Festival

Sound art festival with Vilgiskoddeoayvinyarvi: Wolf Lake on the Mountains, a work by Justin Bennett at Alte Münze, Berlin
16/10/2020 – 01/11/2020

The Dystopia Festival brings diverse sound art viewpoints together in an exhibition that deals with current dystopian moments, as well as those of an imagined future.

Dystopias have gained immense importance in recent years. Not only in fiction, but also in reality, the dystopian signals have been increasing, whether by authoritarian-led states, in threats posed by global Internet corporations, by drastic climate developments – or, most recently, by the corona pandemic. The dystopian always carries the germ of the utopian within it however, even if only as a warning to us not to let things go so far- as we have witnessed during the Corona period, when, for example, Venice’s canals became clear again, or, when the sky over Beijing became clear as well.

Justin Bennett shows his audiovisual work Vilgiskoddeoayvinyarvi: Wolf Lake on the Mountains as a single screen film, in an installation with drawings and photographs.
