Pop-Cultural Impulses

Zukunft Pop once a year sheds light on developments in music history and highlights new perspectives in the field of pop culture. The conference was initiated in 2009 by Prof. Udo Dahmen and is financially supported by the Landesanstalt für Kommunikation Baden-Württemberg. Artists and experts from the music industry, cultural policy, higher education and training, pop promotion and the media exchange views on current pop cultural topics.

The influence of sub­cultures on the mainstream, for example, is just as interesting as developments in so-called extremist pop, which explicitly deals with anti-democratic subcultures in pop music.

The aim of the heterogeneous selection of speakers is to be able to consider and discuss the respective leading topic of the year from as broad­a perspective as possible.

At the Zukunft Pop 2021 conference on Saturday, December 4, starting at 12 p.m., speakers from the music scene will address the topic of pop cultural utopias.
Due to the current Corona situation, the event will take place in Live-Stream.
