In November’s ONpodcast, Hanna Fink (Gesellschaft für Neue Musik Ruhr) and Daniel Mennicken (ON Cologne) take on the superstructure of the independent cultural scene. They talk about politics and administration and their relationship to art production – in terms of funding, care, sustainability and self-reflection. What influence do funders have on cultural producers, and where is there room for exchange and communication? Which funding structures might contradict their own objectives? And how useful are huge sums of money, as they were recently distributed in the free scene as a result of the Corona pandemic?
Every month ONpodcast offers a new perspective into the independent scene of Cologne. What it is about and who it is with is entirely up to the host: in two episodes they give us insights into their life and work within the experimental music scene and share conversation, stories and music.
