    ABOUT
     
    WATAR – JUNDI MAJHUL
    … a Syrian rapper/musician, started his music journey back in 2008, and continues today to deliver his political/social messages by bringing a tinged mellow groove, accompanied by smooth flow that makes his production an easy listening music with heavy content. He is releasing his first solo album ”El-Mahatta L’ hula” (The First Station) at the end of June 2017 and it’s going to be the official Album launch party.

    BU KOLTHOUM
    … a Syrian Producer/Mc that combines the dark sounds, Arab samples and boom bap hardbody beats with conscious lyrics and poetry under a comedic awkward cover.
    His stage name, Bu Kolthoum, is a tribute to Um Kulthoum, the famed Egyptian singer, and Bin Kulthoum, an Arab warrior and poet from the pre-Islamic era. His lyrics often reflect frustration with the ongoing conflict in Syria and the emotions of leaving home and being in exile. He released his first solo album, ”Inderal”, in November 2015, earning international recognition both as a producer and a rapper. and his new album ”Bo’Bo” is planned to be released at the end of August 2017.

    CHYNO
    In a region where hip hop is still largely unchartered territory, CHYNO (Syria/Lebanon) has broken new ground on all fronts. The Syrian-Filipino has lived all over the world and his debut solo album,”Making Music to Feel at Home” , deals with his consequent feelings of disenfranchisement and marginalization through a hip hop perspective. A range of soulful vocals, upbeat electro-synth kicks, ambient guitar riffs and Chynos powerful MC skills create the landscape for the various ways in which the artist is musically recreating home. In 2017, he released a 9-track EP, titled ”El Dahleen”, which featured seven artists, seven distinct sounds, and follows the journey of the “El Dahleen” series. and currently working on a new EP called “The Merchants of Menace”.

    For the third time, Max Gadow and Sven Björn Popp of virtuellestheater invite you to take part in VÖLUSPÁ LOCATION ANALYSIS.
     
    Based on the cosmogenic opening part of the Edda (the famous Norse book of myths), their nomadic performance installation investigates the atmosphere and the potential of selected locations. After analysing Ballhaus Ost in Berlin and the Hallo-Festspiele in Hamburg in 2016, they now continue with Kunsthaus ACUD. Joining forces with London based artist Elizabeth Prentis, whose practice explores sculpture and performance. They will transform the ACUD gallery into their new temporary camping site. Here they will collect, discuss, sing, read, build, destroy, eat and dance in the space.
     
    Together with a variety of guests, they will inspect the past and present, to try and cast an optimistic glance into the future. // More Info
