    The third episode of The […] Experiment seminar is part of the CTM Vorspiel Program. The inspiring theme of the session is the search and exploration of the fundamental, formal structure of a language, medium or discipline occurring in different fields of knowledge. As usual in The […] Experiment series, the chosen topic is an occasion to present concrete examples and tell stories about them. The first story comes from the present: Caterina Barbieri will talk about how her music practice is inspired by themes of emerging machine intelligence, human desire of pattern detection and the generative power of music. These are also the concepts at the core of her latest work “Patterns of Consciousness” (2017, Important Records). The second story comes from the past: it is the Communication Theory developed by Claude E. Shannon in the late 40s. Alice Cannava will introduce some aspects of the theory with a narrative approach before screening Charles & Ray Eames’ “A Communication Primer”, a 1953 educational yet incredibly poetic film about the theory.

    CATERINA BARBIERI
    … is an Italian composer now based in Berlin. Her work explores themes of machine intelligence and object oriented perception in sound through approaching music practice as an integrative cognitive feedback between humans and technology. After graduating at the Conservatory and the Faculty of Humanities in Bologna with projects focused on phenomenology of perception, philosophy of music and ethnomusicology, she has researched and produced music at the renowned EMS in Stockholm, where she has intensively composed for the Buchla 200 system. By means of synthesis, pattern based operations and subtractive counterpoint, her music draws severe geometries in time and space. A focus on minimalism in composition arises from a meditation on primary waveforms and exploration of the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of sequencers. Her work has been released on Important Records and performed in venues such as The Long Now, MaerzMusik and Atonal (DE), Norbergfestival (SE), Worm (NL), Angelica (IT), De Montfort University (UK), Manchester University (UK), EGH (IT). // Homepage

    JAKOB KOLDING

    Fri 27.01 19:00 // EXHIBITION, OPENING // GALLERY
    JAKOB KOLDING

    JAKOB KOLDING, dislocated discolated
    OPENING: FRI, 27. JANUARY 2017, 7 – 11 PM
    EXHIBITION: 28. JANUARY – 26. FEBRUARY 2017
    OPENING HOURS: FRI & SAT, 1 – 6 PM
    Curated by Elodie Evers
     
     
    Jakob Kolding is best known for his hand made collages and posters in which he samples and mixes the visual idioms of art, architecture, literature, theatre, and music. Since the late nineties, Kolding has been creating his own vocabulary of cut-outs that continues to grow and expand with time. The same elements are re-used and re-contextualized in different works, constructing a variety of context-dependent meanings and narratives. Whereas his early works were mostly made with reference to a specific time and place, usually revolving around the relationship between the ideologies of urban planning and the actual use of space, his newer works are more abstract and hence more open for interpretation.
     
    Recent years have also witnessed a gradual development towards the 3-dimensional in his work: arrangements of sculptural figures, life-sized wood cut-outs printed with black and white imagery, transfer the collages into the actual space. Kolding creates scenographies — stagelike settings that invite viewers into a tableau vivant while demanding that they constantly navigate their own spatial experience.
     
    The exhibition at ACUD brings together both a group of sculptural figures and a selection of new small-scale collages. Through their size and the depth of their frames, these collages allude to historical dioramas. Dioramas were originally produced as miniature scenes in three dimensions with objects and figures placed in front of a painted background in order to create a realistic impression. In inviting people to look at, and often literally enter such a setting, the emphasis lies on the viewer and their imagination. Instead of being presented with a complete vision, or with something posing as fact, openness and ambiguity are at the core of these viewing apparatuses.
     
    The show’s title, dislocated discolated, represents Kolding’s ongoing fascination with the potential for something new that lies in every breakdown, collapse, or change in general. Dislocation stands for disruption, for a state of being displaced. More concretely, it can be read as a reference to one of the most challenging issues of our times. ‘Discolation’, on the other hand, is a word made up by Kolding himself by simply rearranging the existing letters of the original word (a word game that he pursued to an extreme in his new four-part poster produced for this show, which will also be hung up around Berlin). It entails the word ‘disco’ that is associated with a variety of celebratory, shimmering meanings.
     
    The concept of dislocation probably comes into focus most prominently with the collage Foreign Fish (2017), in which a couple of men stand inside Mies van der Rohe’s famous Seagram building and stare at a gigantic, colorful fish passing though the otherwise grim surroundings. The safety of the rigidly planed inside collides with the chaotic phantom-like outside — a landscape and a group of people on a raft taken from the original illustration of Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth. All of the cut-outs are black and white except the fish. Simultaneously strange and beautiful, it introduces a new order. By continuously creating these speculative topographies, Kolding points at an openness that is at once challenging and reassuring.
     
    +++The exhibition opening will be followed by an after-party with DJ sets by Wolfgang Tillmans and Lars Erik Frank+++
     

    Jakob Kolding (*1971 in Albertslund, Denmark) has exhibited extensively throughout Europe and the United States. dislocated discolated is the artist’s first solo show in Berlin. He is currently working on a stage set for the Bregenzer Festspiele and regularly writes for the Berlin based magazine Starship where he translates his interest in reinventing and (de)constructing meaning into texts that reflect on his favorite books.
     
    Kolding´s previous exhibitions include: The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; The Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; The Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt, Germany; Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, Austria; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France; Kunstverein in Hamburg, Germany; Museum Villa Stuck, Munich, Germany; Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden; CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, USA; The Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, California; and The University of Michigan Museum of Art, Ann Arbor.

    BELONG ANYWHERE

    Sat 28.01 20:00 // OPENING // STUDIO
    BELONG ANYWHERE

    Am 28.01. eröffnen wir die Ausstellung BELONG ANYWHERE an zwei Orten in Berlin. Der zentrale Ausstellungsort ist eine AirBnB Wohnung, im Anschluss an die Eröffnung gibt es im ACUD Studio, dem zweiten Teil der Ausstellung, Musik und Drinks.
     
    Von der Wohnung zum ACUD Studio wird es einen Transfer mit Uber-Cars geben, die gleichzeitig der Ort für eine eigens dafür entstandene Arbeit sind. Die Location für den Ausstellungsteil in der Wohnung wird am Tag der Eröffnung via Mailinglist bekannt gegeben, hierzu bitten wir um RVSP an: belonganywhereex@gmail.com
     
    Die Ausstellung geht von AirBnBs Tagline “Belong anywhere” aus, dem Versprechen, überall auf der Welt zu Hause sein zu können. Berlin, Beirut, Beijing: AirBnB-Kunden bereisen diese Städte nicht mehr als Touristen, sondern erwerben das Erlebnis des temporären Dazugehörens zu einem Ort. Dabei stellt sich das anywhere zunehmend als imaginärer, translokaler und global homogenisierter Raum dar.
     
    Die Arbeiten der Ausstellung gehen der Frage nach dem Zusammenhang zwischen den ästhetischen Strategien des AirSpaces und den wohnungswirtschaftlichen Verdrängungseffekten der Sharing Economy nach. Aus unterschiedlichen künstlerischen Perspektiven sollen die Verflechtungen der Corporate Aesthetic der DIY Bourgeoisie mit der semantischen Sphäre des englischen Verbs to belong aufgezeigt werden, welche auch auf die Gewalt von Privateigentum und Klassifikation verweist: Dies gehört mir und nicht dir. Der gehört dorthin und nicht hierher. Die Ausstellung nähert sich den kodierten Attributen und den Funktionsweisen des sozialen, imaginären Raums an. Welcome Home.
     
    Eröffnung am 28.01. in der AirBnB Wohnung 18–21H, im ACUD Studio ab 20H. Im Anschluss legen im ACUD Marlene Stark und Elliver auf.
     
    Die Ausstellung ist am 29.01. von 12-18.00 Uhr in der AirBnB Wohnung geöffnet. Die Adresse der Wohnung schicken wir euch. Bitte Email an:

    SHARI VARI

    Shari Vari – The electronic based pop group founded by Helena Ratka and Sophia Kennedy – are about to release their first EP ‘Life Should Be a Holiday’ which contains 5 pieces of music that oscillate between songwriting and a more club based track character.

    20H Doors
    21H Start
     
    //
     
    ABOUT
     
    Every piece on ‘Life Should Be a Holiday’ has a way of dealing with traditional forms of songwriting, breaking those rules and structures while combining psychedelic lyrics and chords with dark electronic sounds and weird, stubborn beats.
     
    You are going to have a teenage crush on a white cat on a roof, while drowning in a pool and who ever can write a song „while checking the phone“, needs to have at least one fan.
     
    Looking forward to plunge into the world of “Shari Vari”, so hit the booze and run (to the concert)!

    Dystopian sisters throw out some distant de-stabilisers aimed right between the eyes of a world in disarray. Heartless vocals offer no comfort from disorienting synth lines… you’d lie down if you could but there’s that booming rhythm section shoving it all forward, keeping your toes tapping. You’re on your own and you like it.

    Phages are micro-organisms that invaded the planet one million years ago, having one main goal: to make life simply better. In spite of being the largest population on Earth, phages are so silent that their presence is defined by the absence of bacteria.
     
    In this hands-on workshop, expect a face-to-face encounter: you will finally meet the phages using our DIY display technique. Practically, you will manipulate the interaction between phages and bacteria on a microfluidic device.
     
    The workshop is open for everyone, no prior knowledge, nor registration are required. All the materials are provided by us.

    AIR CUSHION FINISH
    … formed in Berlin in 2007 and comprises of composer/player jayrope and natural vocal synthesizer Lippstueck, who had enjoyed playing Berlin’s underground together since the 1990s. Lippstueck prominently sings, wordless and backwards in time, while his partner jayrope tends to also appreciate any DIY, electronic, string or percussion instrument small enough to fit into a single suitcase altogether. Changing setup and subsequently music is programmatic to them, as well as having friends as guest musicians, all resulting into an unforeseeable slow motion cacophony of whispers, bleeps, rhythms and harmonies. There’s a notion of Dada, but you never know.
     
    After seven albums and following a friendly invitation by members of GY!BE, they recorded at Montreal’s renowned Hotel2Tango studio with Thierry Amar in 2014. Flink was the result of this session, an immersively psychedelic (sweet, rather than head-frying) world unto themselves, sensitively placing Lippstueck’s flighty vox – which range from Schwitters-esque gibber to avian and ecclesiastical runs – drifting around the centre of a sound sphere pieced together from intricately laced rhythmic mechanisms, reverberant dub basses and insectoid blues. // Homepage

    VIRGINIA WING

    Mit ihrem Debüt hat die Süd-Londoner Band Virginia Wing 2014 den Shoegaze-Olymp im Sturm genommen. Und Forward Constant Motion, der gerade erschienene Nachfolger, treibt die Formel Broadcast-Warpaint-Cluster noch einmal weiter: mit dem Ausstieg von Schlagzeuger Sebastian Truskolaski befreien sich Virginia Wing vom rockistisch-stringenten Grundgerüst und übersetzen ihren Dreampop-Eskapismus in ein zeitgemäßes Synth-Pop-Kostüm. Und so spielen Virginia Wing Pop-Musik nach wie vor als cineastische Betrachtung: retro-futuristisch, cinemascopisch verlangsamt, warm-pulsierend und diesig-mysteriös. Jedoch stets mit Groove – und der Gewissheit (und dem technischen Beistand) eines unaufhörlich vor sich hinblubbernden Maschinenparks.
