Control slips through your fingers. The future feels uncertain. Scrolling through your timeline, a world passes by, crying out for change. But where to start? Which ideas should you listen to? What can you hold on to?

At Brainwash Festival we resist doom scenarios, and set out a course. In more than 60 programmes the most ground-breaking philosophers, academics, theatre-makers and writers come together to navigate these uncertain times with us.

our timetable

Thrilling lectures, clashing conversations and audio adventures. You can find all programs in our timetable. Programmes in English can also be found on an overview page.
