Unsound Krakow festival: Future Shock

July 16, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Unsound has announced the central theme for this year’s Krakow festival: Future Shock!

Unsound will take the bestselling 1970 book by futurist Alvin Toffler as the starting point to create a program exploring ideas of the future from the past. Via performances, screenings, talks and installations, Unsound Krakow will also reflect upon key “Future Shock” ideas such “information overload” – a phrase popularized by Toffler. His examination and prophetic description of the disorientating effects of an accelerated rate of technological and social change will serve as a jumping off point for a wide range of musical and non-musical work to be presented in Krakow.

The festival is to take place between October 8th and October 16th, with October 13th – 16th as the key days including John Foxx & The Maths, Sun Araw, Laurel Halo, Deaf Center, Cut Hands, Sex Workers and Ital!
