    MARCELLE/ANOTHER NICE MESS
    Surprise, adventure, entertainment and education: Four key words often used for describing Dutch DJ and producer Marcelle/Another Nice Mess. Using live (and in the studio) three turntables, Marcelle takes her mix talents to high heights. She is as much, or even more of, a musician as she is a DJ. She is an original, skilled mixer, with a very distinctive style of her own, avoiding most DJ-cliches and stale rules. As much inspired by avant garde art movements as fluxus and dada, the real life absurdism of Monty Python as by the wild experiments of dub, post-punk and the latest developments in electronic dance music Marcelle has always been following musical developments very closely and has a keen ear for innovative and new sounds. She strongly believes in the excitement and artfulness of creation and development. With her extensive record collection of some 20,000 vinyl and counting, Marcelle has a strong historical knowledge of past and contemporary underground music. She also produces her own music; on the German label Jahmoni she has started putting out a series of vinyl only releases. Marcelle also does weekly and monthly radio shows for various radio stations in Europe.

But also gamechanger videos from the next generation of artists on the rise appeared online. Videodrome will combine all these happenings of 2017 to a wild audio-visual voyage on Dec, 8.

    … is a cutting edge Dj from Berlin via Tunis who plays whatever the fuck she wants. Bored of mindless club attitude and inspired by all kinds of Experimental sounds, Ambient bangers, Electro and Rave music, she makes people dance all over the world, hosts a monthly show at Noods Radio and recently launched the experimental label Lazy Tapes, a perfect sensory assault for those who like to drift, starting with the tape Guided Meditation on which she collaborated with Bristols future dub fellow Ossia.

    UCC HARLO
    … proposes sonic reconciliations between the old and the new and contemplates contemporary relationships to the natural world. A classically trained viola player and singer, many of her ‘ecclesiastical-wave’ sound projects use samples of her own performances of medieval, Renaissance, and baroque music as their starting point. Others begin from scratch and channel influences as disparate as new-age, left-field house, American minimalism, and early vocal polyphony. All dance around the venn diagram between eco-grief and wonder.

Drawing from clubmusic, free improvisation, drone, dub and sonic futurism they exhale an alienated ontology, haunted by the presence of the real and memories of the future. In May 2017 they contributed the soundtrack for the performance Transcultural Protocol by Admire Kamudzengere & Rachel Monosov that was shown at the Zimbabwe Pavilion at the Venice Art Biennale 2017. // Homepage

    DANIEL MUHUNI + SVEN KACIREK: EPA

    Thu 30.11 20:00 // CONCERT // ACUD STUDIO
    DANIEL MUHUNI + SVEN KACIREK: EPA

    Sven Kacirek & Daniel Muhuni have recorded critical voices in Kenya who speak their mind about EPA, the Economic Partnership Agreement between the EU and the African Caribbean Pacific countries (ACP). The interviews are the core material for a new album that will be presented at ACUD Studio.
     
    //
     
    ABOUT
     
    The European Union (EU) and the Africa, Caribbean, Pacific (ACP) countries have been negotiating an Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) since 2008. In the already agreed text of this new free trading agreement, each East African Country is required to open up 82.6% of its market.
     
    When Kenya s President Kenyatta refused to sign the agreement, the EU imposed tariffs that placed a severe strain on Kenyas cut flowers and beans and forced President Kenyatta to acquiesce to the agreement.
     
    Daniel Muhuni, Agnieszka Krzeminska and Sven Kacirek recorded several interviews about this issue with smallholder farmers, economists and politicians in Kenya; and are now in the process of turning those interviews into music.
     
    Daniel Muhuni and Sven Kacirek have already presented this project live at the Berliner Festspiele in May 2017.
     
    The music is set to be released in November 2017 as free download and vinyl on Pingipung Records (The Kenya Sessions).

    DEAD LADIES SHOW: CHRISTA REINIG // LEONORA CARRINGTON // MEMPHIS MINNIE

    Tue 21.11 20:00 // PERFORMANCE, LECTURE // ACUD STUDIO
    DEAD LADIES SHOW: CHRISTA REINIG // LEONORA CARRINGTON // MEMPHIS MINNIE

    The DEAD LADIES SHOW is a series of entertaining and inspiring presentations on women who achieved amazing things against all odds. Every two months, the show hosts three passionate cheerleaders of too-oft forgotten women, inviting its loyal audience into a sexy séance (of sorts) celebrating these impressive icons, their turbulent lives, and deathless legacies.
     
    Show number 14 brings you three out-and-out rebellious ladies who took their lives in their own hands and gave us great art: an East German writer who found recognition and then disapproval in the West, a painter who shaped both Surrealism and feminism, and one of the most influential blues musicians of all time. Presented by top Berlin writer ANNETT GRÖSCHNER, Australian author JESSICA MILLER, and your favourite regular, FLORIAN DUIJSENS. Co-host KATY DERBYSHIRE will be holding the reins and welcoming you all. So throw caution to the wind, embrace your inner rebel, and raise a glass to a trio of fabulous females with us in the ACUD STUDIO on 21 November, 8pm.
     
    Presented in a messy mixture of English and German. €5 or €3 reduced entry. Now generously supported by the Berliner Senat. Doors open 7:30 – come on time to get a good seat!

    ABOUT
     
    Our dead Berliner is CHRISTA REINIG, born right here in 1926. A working-class lesbian writer, her remarkable life took her from Trümmerfrau to floristry to museum curating, all the while refusing to conform to authority. Having been banned from publishing her work in the GDR, she got her poems and stories into print in the West. In 1964, she went to West Germany to accept a literary award – and never went back. The 1970s saw her discovering feminism, finding a sometimes satirical voice to articulate women’s experiences and ways to write poetry about lesbian love. But – surprise! – the literary establishment wasn’t much into that. Christa Reinig is remembered for her “life-affirming sarcasm” and brash, Berlin-style charm.
     
    The painter and novelist LEONORA CARRINGTON was born in England but spent most of her adult life in Mexico. Even as a child, art offered her a way out of the constraints of her family’s expectations, and she was soon drawn to Surrealism – and the artist Max Ernst. Not one to settle for muse status, Carrington began painting and sculpting in the Surrealist style. She also wrote to deal with the blows life threw at her, from incarceration in an asylum to aging while female. In Mexico, she became a fêted political artist and helped begin the country’s Women’s Liberation movement. She received the ultimate posthumous honour in 2015, with a painting of hers made into a Google Doodle.
     
    Tobacco-chewing blues singer MEMPHIS MINNIE ran away from home at the age of 13 and made a living off music from then on, from street performances supplemented by prostitution to hundreds of now classic recordings. It was said she never put her guitar down until she could no longer hold it in her hands, and she was known to use it as a weapon when required. Her songs were about the joys and hardships of everyday black life; according to the poet Langston Hughes, she played “music with so much in it folks remember, that sometimes it makes them holler out loud.” Largely forgotten for many years while white men covered her songs, she is now celebrated for her huge contribution to blues music and what came after.

    SALON FRAUEN IN DER KUNST: WHY HAVE THERE BEEN NO GREAT WOMEN ARTISTS?

    Fri 17.11 20:00 // PRESENTATION // ACUD STUDIO
    SALON FRAUEN IN DER KUNST: WHY HAVE THERE BEEN NO GREAT WOMEN ARTISTS?

    „Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” ist der Titel eines Essays von Linda Nochlin aus dem Jahr 1971. Die amerikanische Kunsthistorikerin untersucht die institutionellen Hürden, die für die massive Unterrepräsentation von Künstlerinnen in der Kunstwelt verantwortlich sind. Der SALOON, das Netzwerk für Frauen, die in der Berliner Kunstbranche arbeiten, nimmt zusammen mit Performing Encounters Nochlins Gedanken zum Anlass, Frauen in der Kunst der vergangenen Jahrzehnte ins öffentliche Bewusstsein zu rücken. In Kurzvorträgen stellen SALOON-Mitglieder Themen und Persönlichkeiten vor, die das Kunstgeschehen ihrer jeweiligen Zeit sehr wohl mitprägten, in der Geschichtsschreibung jedoch wenig bis gar nicht berücksichtigt wurden.

    CÉTIEU
    Tekla Mrozowicka, a Warsaw based versatile purveyor of ambient (but she can drone, go into harsh noise mode and has a penchant for a good beat, too) has been extremely busy with keeping her stream of sounds at bay. Her main alias is cétieu, which is an ambient-drone moniker of a multifaceted „técieu / cétieu / éctieu” project, under which she has released over a thousand minutes worth of music. In doing so, she has also happened to generate quite a buzz by striking deals with record labels from around the globe. Her efforts garnered her comparisons to Ian Hawgood, Hakobune, Steve Roach, Tim Hecker, Celer and Stephen Mathieu. However, it’s worth mentioning that not all of Tekla’s inspirations are musical. The textural approach with which she sculpts her sounds is an extension of her keen interest in painting and visual arts, that to her is as essential as the sonic constituents.
