PERFORMANCE AND ARTIST TALK (in the context of the festival exhibition) – “What might you recover on earth?” Rike Scheffler performs musical rituals of transition: Haunting, sensual poems from a possible future, resounding as echoes to us today.

With voice, synthesizer, and song, she will develop immersive sonic realities in which boundaries between body, machine, text, and nature are palpably blurred. Following the performance, Scheffler will speak about her work with literary scholar Frieder von Ammon.

This event will be held in German, with English-language translations of the performance available via handouts and a QR code link.
