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.

Escape One

Club Program

“When I received the booking request for a early morning set at IfZ’s Trakt II for Balance Festival I was very exited. I wanted to go so badly in the past years editions but didn’t take the chance due to other obligations I put a higher priority to. With the whole new situation, the powerlessness and panic I was glad to hear that there is the idea to move everything online. But in my life I felt the urgent need to escapethe online world more and more. So how should I connect this conflicting brainparties?
In the past weeks I have isolated myself a lot (as most of us probably) so the idea to connect all the mixes I was requested to arrange came across. I thought of IfZ, all the timeless moments I spend there in escaping the outtaworld, I thought of Leipzig, my time there and what I did when I needed to escape human world in a different way. The woods, the trees, the forest, the rivers, the birds, the Wildpark, Cospude und Agrargelände. So the more abstract, dark and breathtaking mindworld when I think of my inner unbalance crosses the moment of releasing body/movement at IfZ. This is kinda diary page for you.
It is the second released, but first part of a Triptychon of Sounds I created for the places and events I miss and wanna support. I just wish you all all all the best and am looking forward into a different but good future.” (Resom)
