13-12-2016 New Emergences: Breaking the Glass Ceiling | Splendor Amsterdam

Aesthetics, Politics, Philosophy and New Emergences in Current Electronic Music and Surroundings.
==============
New Emergences is a lecture and discussion series highlighting the current debates around gender in electronic, contemporary and experimental music. Within these fields, it is increasingly necessary to give a platform to current advocates for under-represented voices. We believe it is important to expose existing biases that impede the richness of our diversity. By openly discussing how the current environment validifies our artistic works by the identification of our gender, we hope to challenge the existing conditions.
