There’s a small but growing alliance of public servants, technologists, and concerned citizens who recognize the fundamental threat to our democracy if we continue to let the machinery of government decay, without doing something about it. Engagement at the local level can seem like a mystery but during this speech we will get familiarized with multiple examples around the world that by using the blockchain technology and local cryprocurrencies develop citizen-centered practices that disrupt the status quo and stand up for a strong, open and dynamic democracy.
Keynote Speech: Victoria Alcina Burgues – Υπότροφος, Fellow at the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business & Government at the Harvard Kennedy School
QnA Session: Aphrodite Bouikidis – Thessaloniki Resilient City

Kuniyuki is no doubt one of Japan’s best kept secrets. His unique musical sense can be described as borderless, and he has been highly praised by producers and DJs from all over the world. Joe Claussell, Dego, DJ Cosmo, Jimpster to name but a few, have been falling over themselves when they heard his produced tracks. Now, some of them have been releasing his works through their own labels.
In recent years, he has performed not only in Japan but abroad, as well, in Europe, South Africa and elsewhere, where his particular live style has featured a powerful combination of improvisation and dance music. Check out the ever-consistent and surprisingly prolific producer out of Sapporo, Kuniyuki Takahashi at Reworks on September 20th.

Reworks proudly presents Matthew Herbert, a pioneering, multifaceted and highly productive artist.
Tireless, innovative, sampling wizard, trained pianist, producer and writer, Matthew Herbert is one of the most versatile and prolific artists of our time. Recording and producing under various aliases, he is behind 26 albums, dozens of singles and collaborations with names like Serge Gainsbourg, Quincy Jones, R.E.M, Bjork, Roisin Murphy, Moloko, Roy Ayers and others.
He has a wide range of innovative projects, from numerous albums to music for movies, theater, television and radio. He shaped the British approach to the Minimalism using his aesthetics, while designing its connection with House. Sometimes as a DJ, sometimes with major orchestras – including his Big Band consisting of 18 instruments – he travels all over the world, from the Sydney Opera House to the Hollywood Bowl.
After two successful albums with his band, Herbert, is currently working on the next one that is a response to the British government and Brexit. It is a two year collaborative project right across Europe celebrating artistic and musical collaboration and communities across national borders. The album will be released in 2019 the same moment that Britain leaves the EU and includes sounds that anyone can upload online through the Brexit Sound Swap application. The purpose is to hear at the same time the sound contribution of up to 1000 people.
Herbert makes music from objects, instruments, custom made hardware, and even food. Bodily Functions’ album is included in the list of the best and most important albums in the history of electronic music.
One of the most important geniuses of recent decades is added to the line up of Reworks 2018.

After two successful collaborations in 2016 and 2017, the Cologne-based event will host We are Europe programmes across its festival and its convention. By welcoming Reworks Festival & Reworks Agora, Nuits sonores & European Lab forum and Sónar & Sónar+D, c/o pop will make Cologne into a meeting point of the European scene.
On Thursday 30 August, European Lab forum and c/o pop Convention will explore together the current state of copyright through the angle of music quality, piracy, blockchain and the potential repression of creativity, featuring Claudia Schwarz, Cliff Fluet, Paul Pacifico and Turo Pekari.
The same day, Sónar+D and c/o pop Convention will question the future of AI and the way this technology can reshape or destroy the music industry. The panel will host Antònia Folguera, Dr. Òscar Celma, Inderjit Birdee and Rachel Falconer.
The next day (Friday 31), Reworks Agora, European Lab forum and c/o pop Convention have co-created a panel examining the politics of dancing, counterculture, ravers in Tbilisi and techno entering museums, with Anastasios Diolatzis, Christian Arndt, Katarina Serulus, Matthew Collin and Tobias Thomas.
Because you cannot discuss the politics of dancing if you don’t know how to dance, Sónar, Nuits sonores, Reworks and c/o pop Festival have also curated We are Europe night (Saturday 01 September) in one of the city’s most renowned club spaces: Gewölbe, where KiNK, Bawrut, Gilb’r and Ison will share the stage.
