“The Long Now” is a place for the enduring present. A space in which time itself can unfold and the sense of time can take uncharted paths. With a duration of more than 30 hours, the project invites visitors to detach from the clocked pace of the present and indulge in the chronosphere of “The Long Now”.
“The Long Now” is the grand closing event of MaerzMusik − Festival for Time Issues 2018. Surrounded by the monumental setting of Kraftwerk Berlin, the project assembles concerts, performances, electronic live-acts, sound and video installations to form a composition in time and space. Embracing musical worlds from early Renaissance polyphony to the musical avant-garde, experimental electronics, Ambient and Noise, this fourth edition of “The Long Now” allows for sonic and bodily experiences of an exceptional kind. Visitors are welcome to spend the entire duration in the powerplant, sleep over, or come and go. Beds will be provided.
