Art & Music Festival
The Timcheh Music Festival is back for its second edition! Once again the collective brings together contemporary Iranian and other international artists, some from the diaspora in Europe and beyond, in Cologne. The program includes a workshop, an art exhibition, live concerts and DJ sets. To further connect the communities, Timcheh is collaborating with artists* from the last edition to curate this year`s lineup and contribute to the artistic vision. Returning are: Peter Kirn, Artsaves, Jessica Ekomane and Monibi. Kambiz Kia, an established figure in Tehran`s underground club scene, co-curates the club night with Monibi. Friday and Saturday Timcheh 13 will present music performances, live concerts and DJ sets. The festival will end on Saturday with a club night. This time the festival will be complemented with new formats, a workshop and a VR exhibition: Embodied AI Workshop (by Peter Kirn): In this workshop you can explore the creative potential of AI in music and art. You will learn about neural networks, train models with your own data for art and sound, and use machine learning for different interfaces.
VR Exhibition: Loophole (presented by XOR Space X Timcheh): `Loophole` challenges the dominance of automated, for-profit art and culture in the digital age. This virtual reality exhibition explores the potential of digital art to break out of this closed system, drawing inspiration from different cosmologies and knowledge systems. Artists* from diverse backgrounds collaborate to create interactive ecosystems that redefine online social presence, challenge the hegemony of tech giants, and foster transformation.
Explore new frontiers of digital art and culture in this thought-provoking exhibition.
This event is supported by Musikfonds e.V. with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MKW NRW) and the City of Cologne - Cultural Office.
