Sedaction is an artist and DJ currently based in Cologne. Spending her time in clubs for years – working and dancing her ass off – she started finding her place in mixing stylistically versatille energetic sounds. Connecting mostly rhythm and vibes, trying to break the boundaries for classic 4-to the floor sets by establishing electronic sounds from not only the western culture. This is her main focus in the selection. The Club Heart Broken member thrives to either make the crowd shake and dance hard or just chill and vibe to the sounds. As there is no limit in genres you will hear everything from house, techno, electro to experimental, jazz, rap, soul to batida, dembow, gqom and govend and dabke and … just tune in.

Hojin Kang – WEB ARi 2.0
The Statue of Peace by Kim Seo-kyung and Kim Eun-sung, commemorates the so called "comfort women" – who were sexually enslaved by the Japanese military during the Asia-Pacific War. Summer 2022, the students committee of the University of Kassel welcomed the Statue of Peace, yet the University removed her this spring. “WEB ARi“ is the virtual sister of the Statue of Peace – a portable memorial for everyone that raises the question of who decides which artworks and memorials are shown in public spaces. https://www.hojinkang.com/webari-2/
