¡RADICAL RIDDIMS! - Global Ghetto Tech devoted nine days in June 2011 to bass heavy music styles like Baile Funk, Miami Bass, New Orleans Bounce, Baltimore Club, Chicago Juke, and CoupÉ DÉcalÉ, as well as Kuduro from Angola, South-African Kwaito, British Dubstep and 2step or Bassline from Sheffield. All these musical strands represent a form of ‘positive’ cultural globalization and are among the most promising and pioneering innovations in pop and dance music as well as global club culture.

The musical line-up will be accompanied by an exhibition of international video works and documentary films, as well as lectures, in which we will spotlight on the various local musical scenes and ‘hyper hybrid’ club music. At the same time we will discuss the connections and disparities between key concepts like regionality and globality, citation and original creation, copyright and authorship, digitality, internet and web cultures, as well as the phenomenon of image transfer in popular culture. Curated by Christine Lang und Christoph Dreher.
