The Long Now is a place for the continuing present. A space in which time itself can unfurl and senses of time can dilate into as yet uncharted patterns. With a duration of 30 hours, the project invites visitors to detach from the clocked pace of the urban present and indulge in the chronosphere of The Long Now.
The Long Now is the closing event of MaerzMusik − Festival for Time Issues 2019. Embedded in the monumental setting of Kraftwerk Berlin, concerts, performances, electronic live-acts, sound and video installations form a large-scale composition in time and space. Embracing musical worlds from the musical avant-garde to experimental electronics, ambient and noise, this fifth edition of the event offers sonic and bodily experiences of an exceptional kind. Visitors are welcome to spend the entire duration in the powerplant, sleep over, or come and go. Beds will be provided.
