3hd Festival is in its third year, and organisers Daniela Seitz and Anja Weigl of Creamcake are pleased to announce the event will be running from November 22 to November 25. Happening at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, and OHM, as well as the internet — the program looks at music, performance, and contemporary art to ask deeper questions about politics, community, economic uncertainty, and communication.

This year 3hd explores the viability of acting outside of the status quo with its theme “Whatever You Thought, Think Again.” Performances, panels and workshops will travel the gamut of experience and struggle — personal stories of overcoming adversity around visibility, feminism, empowerment and community — in order to be seen and heard. The emancipatory promise of art, the internet and globalization appears to have failed us in the face of rising xenophobic populism in a backdrop of looming economic, political and ecological disaster.

Running over four days, 3hd will interrogate the aforementioned notions in a series of installations, concerts, performances, panels, workshops, online commissions, and a survey examining music, art and society where, for the first time, it intersects with science. In giving a voice to art and music as new and radical strategies/environments, 3hd 2017 proposes an anecdote to an international crisis point, where establishing autonomy, ownership, and independence for Creamcake and its network is key to securing a better future for the community in Berlin, and the world.
