The Darmstadt Forum (A Curated Debate)

Stipend holder Ashley Fure and Steven Kazuo Takasugi (Harvard University) are developing a new discourse format for the next Darmstadt Summer Course: The Darmstadt Forum. The aim of this event, which will take place in the first week of the summer course, is to present a curated format for exchange on crucial issues of contemporary music. Topics may take up aesthetic, structural, technical or general cultural issues of New Music today.


Three panel discussions will be prepared and moderated by each changing curators. The selection of curators will be done by Ashley Fure and Steven Takasugi after the application deadline on 31 March 2014. In a further step five discussants are then sought for each panel by a further call. For more information please see the PDF "Darmstadt Forum Call" (updated version 19 March 2014).
