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.

Club Program

Sex-positive performer with a secret identity and feminist rapper with punk attitude: Milan-based M¥SS KETA is probably the next big thing and a club kid like you and me at the same time. We were looking forward to her first gig in East Germany ever and expected an epic hot and sweaty Friday-night show at IfZ Leipzig, but Covid-19 thwarted the plans. For the Web Edition of the festival we present exclusive live material from her last tour. Only available until June 7th!
