New Centuries are Rare

coyote SE, 2023, 12', DCP

The archaic topography of Norberg, with its myriad of water-filled mining shafts zigzagging beneath the surface of the earth, unfolds a narrative of deindustrialization throughout the world. These ghostified sites of abandoned industries became, during the end of the 20th century, a place of resistance and escapism — turning factory floors into dance floors. Today, this former mining town is best known for the largest Scandinavian electronic music festival, Norbergfestival. The film unfolds a sonic journey through these interlaced layers of history — juxtaposing the emblematic story of the 20th century rave scene and the resistance present in the region’s past.
