Web Edition

How Balance Club / Culture Festival – Web Edtion works: We publish the contributions according to ⤵︎ the timetable on this website. 
From 20⁠–24 May, our website will feature DJ sets, lectures, multimedia texts, workshops, artist talks, audio-visual works and artistic fashion-pieces. As a grand finale, we will release our Balance-Sampler “Various Artists – Tender Squads” on festival Sunday and, admittedly, fulfill our own long standing wish. The Balance Club / Culture Festival sees itself as an interface between club culture and social critique. All contributions of the festival “Tender Squads” address the question which constellations and alliances can be imagined for the emancipatory potential of a different world to unfold? Which alliances do we want to form and where do we have to insist on difference for our alternatives to be viable? What form of (feminist) care and support do we need for each other right now? Together with you we want to find out, more urgently than ever, how we can maximally destabilize structural inequalities.

Authentically Plastic

Club Program

Authentically Plastic’ is a multi-disciplinary artist, performer, and DJ based in Kampala. Their sets, at once genre-defying and dance-able, mainly centre on femme artists and are heavily defined by Vogue beats, Jersey House, UK Bass, Gqom, Kwaito and experimental sounds. (Words by @nyegenyege)

For our festivals’ Web Edition, Authentically Plastic recorded an exclusive, intriguing DJ-Set above the roofs of their home town Kampala.
