In this publication, Bart van der Heide argues that techno music can not only function as an ecstatic and collective experience, but can also serve as a platform for socio-critical discourse. Which cultural phenomena and social changes can derive from the techno scene? How can identities be experienced and how do they intertwine? The authors of this anthology examine techno music and its scene on the basis of current social issues. In doing so, they elaborate tools and discourse strategies on how subcultural platforms can be used politically. The reader TECHNO is a call-to-action to question the status quo and strive for social change.
BART VAN DER HEIDE (*1974) has been director of Museion Bolzano since June 2020. Previously, he was director of the Kunstverein Munich and chief curator at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
