With Hereafter, the festival will use its 25 year history to reflect on the rapid changes in our cultural and artistic relationship with technology, and share the enthusiasm, hope and concern that comes with it. Over the years, the festival’s perspective has also changed from challenging our understanding of audiovisual experiences, to exploring the interplay of humans and machines, and from experimenting with tools and technologies to questioning their social repercussions and their impact on our daily lives.
Now, by reflecting on the entangled issues of power relations, neo-colonialism, technology, the rise of fascism and the implications of those practices for our environment, Sonic Acts wishes to address some of the pressing topics of our time. The festival will move through conversations with thinkers and artists at a three-day international conference, to multiple evenings filled with audiovisual performances, concerts, films, installations, an exhibition presented across several spaces in Amsterdam and club nights showcasing artists whose own nightlife operations explore some of the very same topics.

HEREAFTER – An Exhibition in Three Acts
Arti et Amicitiae 8 Feb–3 Mar
De Brakke Grond 16 Feb–3 Mar
Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam 22 Feb–3 Mar

The Sonic Acts 2019 exhibition aims to explore the genesis of our current crisis – and what happens hereafter – by reflecting on the issues we are forced to confront on a daily basis. Works presented in this exhibition, which takes place in three acts across three spaces in Amsterdam – Arti et Amicitiae, Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond and Stedelijk Museum – are by a diverse group of artists who share sensitivity towards the ‘legacies’ of our past that we are currently confronted with, and that combine the drive to explore, engage and address these important topics through nuanced voices. The exhibition features works by Alexis Destoop, Ana Vaz, Christina Kubisch, Cyprien Gaillard, Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, Louis Henderson (with João Polido Gomes and The Living and the Dead Ensemble), Lukas Marxt, The Otolith Group, Rana Hamadeh (with André Castro), Sondra Perry, Tony Cokes and Ulrike Ottinger.
