MAY 31 & JUNE 01


We are excited to announce another edition of the festival, HOSPIZ_24! Save the dates of 31st of may and 1st of june, and join for this occasion to immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of a meticulously curated program by the HOSPIZ crew. Renowned DJs and artists from the region and around the world take to the decks, delivering electrifying sounds that reverberate through the ancient walls of the monastery. This year, we have taken a more artistic direction in the program, as there will be several experimental performances and installations, that mean to expand the horizons of HOSPIZ Festival. With HOSPIZ_24, we aim to direct HOSPIZ into a new path of artistic experimentation and celebration of electronic music, while cherishing the connection to the region.

The setting of the festival is not an accidental one. HOSPIZ Festival in its principles intends to merge the past and the future, the ancient and the digital. The monastery represents the character and the history of the region of South Tyrol, whereas music and visual art bring forth the artistry and creativity of the present. Through this duality, HOSPIZ Festival offers their guests an immersive experience, where they can dive into the intersection of history and innovation, tradition and modernity. In recent years, HOSPIZ Festival has become one of the most relevant electronic music events in the region, as it has been curating local artists, while featuring international artists.

As a DJ, club founder, programmer and record label head, Jetti has pushed electronic music of the highest calibre through her adopted city for well over a decade. You’ll struggle to find any name more synonymous with Rotterdam’s underground scene. A musical fanatic from an early age, she’s developed an almost encyclopaedic knowledge that runs as deep as it is wide. From evenings spent with her dad in smoky jazz cafés to teenage electroclash phases, and I-F induced italo obsessions, she’s passionate about it all. A born programmer that was always destined to share her love for music in all its forms. Growing up within touching distance of the Netherlands’ major cities, the bright lights and lowm rumbles of pulsing basslines were always tantalising on the horizon. With a first taste of Rotterdam’s club scene in her early teens, she’s continued down the rabbit hole ever since, surrounding herself with club culture and raves on either side of the law. Inspired by Berlin’s late night bars, she began throwing parties in the empty buildings of Rotterdam’s West Kruiskade district. What would follow is the story of the city’s most influential venue of modern times. Jetti dropped out of University to co-found BAR and build an institution that lives on in the hearts of all those connected with the city’s underground dance music community. A class act behind the booth, she refines her broad interests into a foundation of sleek house and techno, and from this base ventures into any number of other genres with effortless dexterity. Co-founding BAR Records with her long time collaborator, Post, she’s kept the sound of the fabled venue alive since its closing in 2019. Without any single genre in mind, the pair push whatever latest cuts catch their ear from an ever widening pool of friends within the scene. Today, she’s the programmer at Rotterdam’s newest venue, BIT Club, channelling her boundless energy into curating events that bring the best out of the space and the artists she continues to be inspired by.

Manuel Zwerger studied Composition with Franz Baur, Simon Steen-Andersen, Niels Rønsholdt and Juliana Hodkinson at the Conservatory of Innsbruck and at the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus. He received further education from Hannes Kerschbaumer and Wolfram Schurig. In 2019 he was a member of the International Young Composers Academy (Festival Ticino Musica) with Oscar Bianchi and Dmitri Kurljandski in Lugano.
Manuel Zwerger moves as a composer at the intersection of new music, performance and installation art, whereby visual and extra-musical material is not subordinated to the sound quality, but made it inherent.
The thematic focus lies on the usual phenomena in the process of making music, which are connected and questioned with influences from everyday life, pop culture, anti-art, current trends and science. He works particularly with prepared instruments and new media. His works are published by Edition Gravis / Berlin.


The piece GAP MELOMANIA for audio playback, baritone saxophone, tuba, drumset and DJ, created especially for Hospiz_24, is an attempt to artistically explore the gap between an opening speech and a DJ set.
Through the mechanised movements and precisely placed accents, the process of uncovering the parameters increasingly gains the impression of a skeletal rhythmisation of all dimensions – the sonic and the physical. The processual character is central to this: similar to morphing, flowing sound transitions are created. (Sound) cells continue to develop and are subject to organic changes. The music is expanded in the sense of an extension of the instruments through new playing techniques and preparations, as well as the inclusion of various media and materials that are collaged, quoted and recontextualised. In the musical development of the piece, the various media elements gradually come together and intertwine, only to finally disintegrate again. Stylistic conventions are played with, demonstrated and transformed. Genre and language boundaries are scrutinised.

How does the beauty industry and the rising trends that influencers and celebrities promote on social media shape our perception of the perfect body? Where does beauty become toxic and unhealthy? By being exposed to variety of treatments for skincare and bodymodifications like permanent make-up and botox as well as extreme fitness pro-gramms for „healthy and toned bodies“ we distort the image of natural beauty into a „copy-paste- perfect-looking-doll-like“ image of our (female) bodies and faces. This aim for perfection not only puts pressure into aging and preservation of beauty standards but can cause addictions to the extend that the individuum doesn‘t feel good without cer- tain treatments. It is a domino effect that causes young girls to not feel good in their own skin, in order to change their outlook by seeing how easy and fast celebrities or even friends start at a very young age with treatments, diets, beautymodifications and core workouts to fit into the mainstream standard of beauty. A good example of a tippingpoint in beautystandars is when the diet and fitness programm to preserve a toned body becomes an addiction, from burning calories to counting them to  the extend of anorexia or other addictions like substance abuse.

I am 24 years old and I am studying art here in Bozen, South Tyrol.
My works are primarily focused on environmental issues through the format of installations and/or sculptures. I also like to work with video and audio but these mediums are preferably linked to more introspective and social themes of my practice.
