Beat the System! Festival im Musikbunker Aachen

Beat the System! Festival at Musikbunker Aachen

The concert series “Beat the System! Festival” is part of the exhibition of the same name curated by Myriam Kroll, which was on view at the Ludwig Forum Aachen from 9 October 2021 to 30 January 2022. The artists, musicians, and collectives presented in the exhibition—such as Die Tödliche Doris, Schwabinggrad Ballett, Goldene Zitronen, Pussy Riot, Christoph Schlingensief or Chicks on Speed—share an interest in questioning prevailing social values and norms. In the foreground of their works and performative actions are transgressions and provocations, while working at the intersection of performance, visual art, activism, and music. The concert series that was originally planned to accompany the exhibition had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are very happy that the events can now take place throughout the month of December 2022 as a collaboration between Musikbunker Aachen and Ludwig Forum Aachen.
