Blaues Rauschen 2023

BLAUES RAUSCHEN festival explores the relationship between the digital and the analog world, and the shifting of boundaries and conventions through artistic means. The live format of the festival provides a platform for audiences to experience abstract art in a sensual way, and encourages them to engage with the performances in a critical and open manner. The festival contributes to the cultural richness of the Ruhr region and its program selection showcases various artistic expressions that highlight the fusions and frictions between the digital and the analog.

BLAUES RAUSCHEN takes place in several venues in Essen, Herne, Bochum, Dortmund, and Gelsenkirchen, and is directed by Karl-Heinz Blomann. (written with a little help from ChatGPT).
