»Underworlds«: they have always exerted an uncanny fascination on people. Artists of all cultures and epochs have worked on their cultic dimension, soul archaeologist Sigmund Freud was the first to draw up a »time-path diagram« into the depths of the human subconscious, and even in the form of such profane inhabitants of its literal surface as Al Capone, the underworld has inspired artistic processes time and again. What makes it so attractive throughout the ages is its sinister existence beneath the cheerful appearance. Between Orpheus and »La resurrezione«, Resonanzen 2023 deals with corruption, the shadow economy and the carnivalesque reversal of existing conditions, excavation and revolution, the search for clues in Roman catacombs and – the most obvious may always be the most surprising - the broad field of the basso continuo.
