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

Actually, I was up for “doing tech” at the Balance Festival. Then the pandemic came and Balance went on the Internet. A web festival, adapted to the circumstances: creative, with super exciting content, incredibly diverse. To show solidarity with the people who had worked for the festival and who are now also confronted with loss of earnings, I was asked if I would like to contribute a DJ set instead of the technical support. Considering what the Balance festival wants and where it wants to go, I think it’s right at the forefront at the moment and the most up-to-date Leipzig has to offer in the field of contemporary club music and scene.

To my cultural contribution: listen!
