More: The experimental setting Hypnomachia, the performative Rough Sleep, a speculative school of sleep dance and uncanny familiar social sleep videos. A sleeper will report. Own sleepy experiments can be followed up with Schlafgut-Bier and Sleep Food.
STWST48x4 also presents an array of new works developed at Stadtwerkstatt under its new art contexts initiative: INFOLAB defines the concept of information, from synchronous quantum storms to randomness in the past and blockchain technology. The Mycelium Network Society gives a preview of its Patulin Biennale project in Taipei this year, plus MNS workshop.
