is a quasi-palindromic propeller that diffuses the boundaries between

image, sound and word. Boundaries become blurred and complex patterns

evolve. The symmetry stumbles over its own mirror axis.

papiripar will take place for the first time in October of 2018.

The festival is dedicated to conceptual and progressive approaches

to pop music and its intersection with art, film and performance.

Among disparate spheres, intersections will be exposed and

interdisciplinary influences will be illuminated, following the motto:

More art in music, more music in art! This axiom of Düsseldorf’s

ATA TAK label defined the German underground scene in the late 1970s.

Overlapping of music and art was apparent in actions and participants

from multiple disciplines; musicians let themselves be inspired by art’s

conceptual methods, artists made music, released fanzines and ran

record labels, concerts assumed the character of performance art and

had a strong visual component.
