The key theme for isa18, the 28th edition of isa, will be „Music and Democracy“. The centenary of the end of World War I and the until then dominating monarchies triggers topics from music’s role in society in general over processes of artistic production to attitudes and approaches in performance and interpretation.
isa18 will explore the wide range of questions implied from a multitude of perspectives in the research symposia of isaScience as well as in the artistic courses and workshops. The isaFestival will give us the opportunity to present programmes that involve audiences in this creative process.
