Aerocene Festival 2019 – Movements for the Air, Munich Landing

During the first weeks of September 2019, Aerocene Community assembled in Munich for Aerocene Festival, an occasion of entanglement and attunement with the atmosphere and each other.

In celebration of the numbers of clouds sensed and the thickness of thoughts developed during the days of gathering, community member Dalia Maini has written a poetic report reflecting and acknowledging all who made the festival possible, whether as a talk or workshop host, the public, community members and dreamers! 

Stay Attuned, further developments of the experience in Munich to follow!

In connection to the festival, Aerocene Foundation with Studio Tomás Saraceno published
