A Mixed Bag: Musrara Mix Festival


The international multidisciplinary 'Musrara Mix Festival' sets out to discover unexplored territories in music, art and performance 

The annual Musrara Mix Festival continues in its 19th year with the theme 'Displacement". This year they will address displacement in terms of mobility and migration through a variety of discourse and research fields. Expropriation and de-territorialization, disassembly and reconstruction - concepts and patterns of thought that play a central role in artistic discourse, the media, the sciences, philosophy, and psychoanalysis. The festival invites visitors to flow into the streets, out of one connection in exhibition spaces to another in the courtyards and paths of the Musrara neighborhood, and to create possibilities for addressing and discussing the different aspects of these concepts in our lives.
