Musrara Mix Festival 2017-a mix of social cultural meanings E-mail

The Musrara Mix Festival is an international multidisciplinary event that takes place annually in the Jerusalem neighbourhood of Musrara. The festival is a hub of artistic and social happenings, embodying the political and cultural essence of Jerusalem and Israel.

This year’s festival, with a theme of “Terra-Incognita: East-West in a Hybrid World”, will take place from 6 to 8 June.

“East and West” are relative concepts originating from the field of geography. However, over the years, these concepts have become charged with cultural, social and economic meanings, which have been imbued with changing world views.

The Musrara Mix Festival this year offers a platform to the diverse and hybrid voices that range along the cultural spectrum between East and West, North and South, advanced technology and shamanism, combinations that convey an experience of the hybrid situation, a liminal situation, and the move towards a new world and a multicultural world view.

Dozens of artists from around the world will be contributing to the festival, including the Chinese artist Ma Li, who will conduct a mass event she calls “Technotaichi”, a hybrid form influenced by traditional Chinese practice, Communist-order trainings and Western techno culture.
