UNITED WE STREAM: LIVE DJ SETS FOR A LIVING ROOM PARTY FOR ONE

UNITED WE STREAM: LIVE DJ SETS FOR A LIVING ROOM PARTY FOR ONE

Staying inside doesn’t mean we have to deprive ourselves of good grooves. United We Stream is bringing Berlin’s best clubs right into your living room – no queueing necessary. In collaboration with over 250 Berlin clubs and venues recently forced to close, this online channel is live broadcasting DJ sets several nights of the week to raise money for nightclub workers and artists in need. Tonight (26.03.2020) tune in for a techno line up from Anomalie Art Club, the multidisciplinary art and culture venue. Then over the weekend, Kreuzberg’s Ritter Butzke and SchwuZ are continuing the party with house and 80s/90s throwback jams (program here). Handy tip: you can also support United We Stream by ordering supplies from the Stay at Home Club which delivers brands like Ostmost, Einhorn and Sirplus right to your doorstep, donating €5 for every order placed. Time to tune in and keep the spirits high. (Text: Andreea Dragos / Photos: Agustín Farías & Anomalie)

GROWING, BLOOMING, WILTING — NATHAN PETER IN THE PSM GALLERY

GROWING, BLOOMING, WILTING — NATHAN PETER IN THE PSM GALLERY

In this never-ending gray weather, our next excursion will be an indoor one – namely the PSM Gallery, where Nathan Peter’s exhibition “Garden” is opening this Saturday (14.03.2020). For the Minneapolis-born, Berlin-based artist, paintings are like sculptures, a fact clearly evident in his abstract and haptic works. Cutouts based on geometric forms and repetitive patterns recall familiar scenes of planted beds, dense greenery and drying foliage – small elements held together by thread and fabric. In Nathan Peter’s vision of the garden, there is a tangible life cycle: the colors and mood of the scenes change with the seasons, from the joyful expectations of spring to the deep melancholy of winter. The garden is a place of emotional change – an exciting and thoughtful interpretation that shortens our wait for warmer days. And if you want to take a piece of this garden into your own home, our agency Cee Cee Creative had the pleasure of designing Nathan Peter’s catalog, which has just been published by Hatje Cantz.

CONTEMPORARY DANCE FROM LONDON — RAMBERT AT THE HAUS DER BERLINER FESTSPIELE

CONTEMPORARY DANCE FROM LONDON — RAMBERT AT THE HAUS DER BERLINER FESTSPIELE

Though spring seems a long way off, things are hotting up already at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele now that dance company Rambert are in residence. Founded at the beginning of the 20th century, the London ballet group is one of the world’s great contemporary dance companies – Audrey Hepburn herself danced in the group before her acting career. This March, Rambert is now in town with the German premieres of two special performances. “Enter Achilles” is the Brit pub culture dance piece by choreographer Lloyd Newson that revolutionised the ballet stage 25 years ago and has now been reworked by Sadler’s Wells. Kibwe Tavares’s “Aisha und Abhaya” meanwhile combines elements of fairytale narrative with Sharon Eyal’s contemporary choreography, accompanied by dark techno from GAIKA. Both performances show how ballet brings across emotion unlike any other art form. You don’t have to be a lover of dance to feel the impact of these works – they are bound to be a feast for all the senses.

FIGURES THROUGH A LENS — BODY PERFORMANCE AT THE HELMUT NEWTON FOUNDATION

FIGURES THROUGH A LENS — BODY PERFORMANCE AT THE HELMUT NEWTON FOUNDATION

A camera captures the moments, feelings and movements that emanate from human bodies. The fascinating diversity of these bodies is showcased in the “Body Performance” group exhibition currently running at the Helmut Newton Foundation. The show updates Newton’s legendary “Naked and Dressed” motifs, which famously bridged fashion and nude photography. The displayed works include his lesser-known 1980s series taken at the Ballet de Monte Carlo, capturing dancers off duty. In Vanessa Beecroft’s “VB55” by contrast, movement is very much the exception: this filmed performance captures 100 women posing as static mannequins, covered only by transparent underwear. The duo Inez & Vinoodh meanwhile deprive their subjects of their entire humanity, their photos distorting adult models by giving them children’s faces. These photographers and others – Viviane Sassen, Robert Longo, Cindy Sherman, Erwin Wurm and Robert Mapplethorpe – present the diversity and power of being human, leaving the observer with a feeling of humility and hope.

THE END OF THE NETWORK: DIGITAL CULTURE AND VISIONS FOR THE FUTURE AT TRANSMEDIALE 2020

THE END OF THE NETWORK: DIGITAL CULTURE AND VISIONS FOR THE FUTURE AT TRANSMEDIALE 2020

Imagine a time before the Internet. Hard, isn’t it? The all-powerful Web and its ability to decentralize infrastructure and make other networks obsolete is the subject of the 33rd Transmediale, titled “End to End.” Running until this Saturday (01.02.2020), the festival for art and digital culture will be exploring how we can approach the concept of the network again – critically, socially and personally. The group exhibition “The Eternal Network” at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt takes us back to the 1960s to address historical issues while making room for contemporary perspectives, while in the video installation “Molecular Sex” from Swiss artist Johanna Bruckner, human and artificial intelligence confront each other directly. AI is also an integral part of the Film & Video Day at the HKW: In Lawrence Lek’s feature film, a fading pop star has new songs written by a computer – “Aidol” – to great success. The week concludes with a two-day symposium, with panels, performances and screenings at the Volksbühne focusing on the pressing questions of what will replace today’s networked systems in the future and what role global political issues (like the climate crisis) will play. This year’s Transmediale focuses on message transfer – so it’s time to expand your own network.
