Blib festival

without comments

I would love to go to the blib festival NYC next weekend. I just love 8-bit sound, e.g. bitshifter . Probably I did spend to much time on my C64 back in the days.
:-)

I still have to improve on my recently bought nanoloop sequencer for gameboy classic. First audio sequencing software I ever used.
Pump up the volume!

Skulpturenpark Berlin

without comments

Skulpturenpark Berlin do have interesting public space exhibitions (and also made my Sanbox Berlin project possible, thx!)

“LANDSCAPES OF DESIRE” CONTEMPORARY ART STRATEGIES IN THE URBAN CONTEXT.

NOVEMBER 2007 – Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum

Wednesday 28th of November 7:30 pm

The Lecture will take place in the atelier and exhibition space of the artists
Neue Grünstrasse 20 Berlin-Mitte
Subway Stop U2 Spittelmarkt.

Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is a project by five artists who founded KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V. Matthias Einhoff, Philip Horst, Markus Lohmann, Harry Sachs and Daniel Seiple. Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is located on an urban wasteland which was formerly the “Mauerstreifen,” the military zone within the Berlin Wall. It remains vacant to this day. With approximately 5 hectares of open lots, it offers a vast space and unique history to host various socio-cultural activities. Modecentrum, a former fashion center, sits on the southwest boundary of this area. On the third floor, KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V. has rented an 800 square meter hall with windows which face this vacant land. Rather than encouraging “plop art” or following the tradition of many open-air museums, Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is interested in sculpture as a process that has the potential to reveal and critique the social, historical, and structural contexts provided by the site. It is not interested in placing objects into an already cultivated urban or park landscape.

Lindenstrasse

without comments

I am not the typical gallery visitor but on friday I went so see the opening of a group exhibition at gallery Gregor Podnar at a brand new ‘gallery-mall’ Lindenstrasse 35, Berlin Mitte. Why don’t they have a big checkout counter downstairs in the lobby? ;-)

I love Ariel’s very nice understatement like untitled airplane (in the clouds?).

“re:place” conference and “9 evenings” exhibition at tesla

without comments

I went to re:place media art history conference last week, listening to some panels and talks. I did like the poster presentations, in Pechakucha style ( 10 presenters in 1 h) a lot. A 2,5 h panel with 4 panelists is sometimes quite long. But over all I got some interesting insights in media art history.
On Saturday I met Eva de Groote from Vooruit.be at Tesla to take a look at the “9 Evenings Reconsidered: Art, Theatre, and Engineering, 1966″ exhibition, originaly shown at MIT.
It was great fun to see today, in the era of the end of media art, the very beginning, the original equipment and beautiful movie documentations of 1966.

“9 evenings reconsidered: art, theatre, and engineering, 1966″ at Tesla
opening hours:
10.11 through 02.12.2007
tues through sun, 6 pm – 10 pm

International Festival: "On the Town" screening

without comments

I would love to see that movie screening tomorrow, but I couldn’t get a cheap flight to NYC any more ;-)
I met Tor Lindstrand at Ars07, we had an interesting panel discussion on PublicSpace-DigitalSpace relation together with Stefan Dösinger and Mirjam Struppek.
I like the work of International Festival, the mixture of theater, performance and any kind of space a lot.

Screening at
Storefront for Art and Architecture
17.10. 2-4 PM

Find more details on the flyer.

As part of PERFORMA07, New York’s second biennial of new visual art performance, International Festival takes on the monumental task of re-shooting the entirety of On The Town (98 minutes), Stanley Donen’s seminal 1949 dance film featuring Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and others, in order to produce an inter-textual fiction engaging with the spatial and social geographies of New York City.
