Imagine that you can spend 30 hours in abandoned powerplant which from inside looks like an industrial temple and promises an unsual sound and visual experience… Getting there?
Great, we have an excellent tip for you where you can find such an experience. Our favourite Berlin venue – Kraftwerk in Mitte – will be hosted this weekend (28th – 29th March 2015) a very special event titled The Long Now. “The Long Now” is a place for the enduring present, a space in which time itself can unfold, where the sense of time can take uncharted paths and get lost. A time bubble, separated, for an unending moment, from the clocked pace of the metropolis. A chronosphere to make space for each and everyone’s proper time. With a duration of more than 24 hours, “The Long Now” constitutes the monumental closing event of MaerzMusik − Festival for Time Issues 2015. The project consists of concerts, performances, sounds installations, film and electronic live-acts by, amongst others, Morton Feldman, Phill Niblock, Thomas Köner, Eric Holm, Kassem Mosse and Mix Mup, Actress, Mika Vainio, Leif Inge and Burkhard von Harder – a composition in space and time, sheltered by one of Berlin’s most impressive spaces: Kraftwerk Berlin.
The visitors are invited to enter this time bubble, to stay overnight, sleeping or otherwise, and surrender to this artistic borderline experience. For more information please follow the facebook event or this link.
We can highly recommend you this event, Kraftwerk in Berlin is something very unique and by the way, it’s also the venue of legendary and recently re-born Berlin Atonal festival.
