Creamcake: 3hd Festival 2018


3hd 2018 is challenging the powerful systems that dominate our world. The programme, titled “System.Lure”,  questions the relationship between humans and machines, the law and nation states, and the flow of money and people under capitalism by examining the oppressive structures of patriarchy and social convention. Instead of merely naming these issues, 3hd looks at possibilities for resistance. Sabotage, hacking and manipulation; diversion, entrapment and deceit. These are all typically concealed methods serving a political purpose, which form an essential part of grassroots activism and strategies of unlearning. By exploring the power relations of society at large, 3hd playfully acts out ways to dismantle the dominant architectures which confine us. In addition to HAU Hebbel am Ufer the events are happening at Säule, OHM, Studio 1 at Kunstquartier Bethanien, and the Internet and invites musicians, performers, and artists across media to raise questions about politics, contemporary media, community, protest, and activism. Next to two live-performances, at HAU the workshop “Laboratory for Musical Resistance” will take place.

3hd Festival is curated and organised by Creamcake. In collaboration with: HAU Hebbel am Ufer. Funded by: Cultural Capital Fund.
