Sirens Sightings consists of 12 hybrid events hosted by Marum at Hosek Contemporary, floating through moving image, sound, dance and rave mythologies.
Marum is a multidisciplinary artist, curator, DJ and writer based in Berlin. Their practice and research interweave sound, queer rave culture and its implication on social and urban politics, collective care practices and feminist hactivism.
The program is realized with a kind support of Gwärtler Stiftung, Switzerland.
