Artists speak @ incu15

September 17, 2015

This weekend The Knife is collaboration with Ful for ‘Europe Europe’, a manifesto about the current refugee situation. A true political statement, which is bold; these days not a lot of artists seem to speak out about this situation.

by Yannick Verhoeven

I was talking to the Incubate organization about this issue and we decided to start #artistsspeak: a serie of short interviews with artists speaking out about the refugee problem. Besides their opinion we’re also figuring out if it’s the duty of an artist to express themself about other topics than music, in this case either political as humanistic events.

We’re not ignorant to find the answer on burden matters like this, but we try to achieve to get it more open for discussion. Besides seeing your favourite band play, getting drunk on dance nights and having a laugh with your friends Incubate should be also a place for discussion and debate.

More interviews coming up at the Incubate YouTube channel!
