New Radicalisms

New Radicalisms festival is initiated by (A)WAKE

Based above the club/space MONO, (A)WAKE provides a space for the in-between voices with multiple cultural backgrounds. We develop cultural programs that do justice to the complexity of our current socio-political context and to the perspectives of minorities who have been overlooked and/or tokenized by mainstream institutions. In a world dominated by media and populism, we move freely between the domains of contemporary art and politics. We believe deeply in the captivating power of aesthetics and design, and connect this with voices of counterculture to reach a wide and diverse audience. The direction of (A)WAKE is driven by questioning the emancipatory potential of the digital world in favor of equal access and mutual cultural exchange between WANA (West Asia and North Africa) and West Europe. Through the focus on these two regions which we personally find ourselves in, we aim towards creative and critical approaches which challenge the greater North-South power dynamics through art and digital culture.
