Politics of Dissonance is a festival of sound, noise, political video, and VJ performance to take place on 6,7,8,9 July bringing artists from across the world to collaborate in a performative investigation into the discord that defines our times. Drawing on dissonance both as a musical term and as a term used to describe social rupture, Politics of Dissonance invites practitioners to engage in performances and talks that focus on the role of dissonance in giving form to our times.
