Magic Life: A Group Show

For our last show of 2015, we have crafted a group show featuring some of the best free-spirited painting talents in european contemporary urban arts.

‘Magic Life’ unites under one roof the magic wizards of Vienna, aka the Irga Irga Crew (Mik Shida, Fresh Max, Mafia_Tabak and Knarf), the Western Germany spirits of Nartur Kunstgruppe (Henning Bischof, Nils Leimkühler, Moritz Neuhoff und Stefan Wiesnau) and our free electron Resident Artist Johannes Mundinger.

All the 9 invited artists are painters, using walls to express their energy and talent with scale, and are characterized by free brush strokes, extreme free flow, disdain of conveniences, and abstracted graffiti.

The exhibition will open on Saturday 24.10.2015 and will run until 27.11.2015.

Please refer to the Galerie page here for more info about the show. Please request the catalogue of the show to galerie@urbanspree.com

Tutti Frutti Fest #4

– TUTTI FRUTTI FESTIVAL # 4 –

December is approaching and thus the fruity time of the year. At least in the house  pøj pøj , with its fourth edition of the Tutti Frutti Fest on 08.12. make the  Urban Spree  colorful again. Welcome to the Tutti Frutti Festival # 4.

OY  (DE / CH)
The two Swiss have been living and working in Berlin for several years, where their current album “Space Diaspora” (Crammed Discs) was created.
Avantgarde Electronica meets jazz, pop & world music – the album sees itself as a kind of “space opera”. The listener goes on a crazy journey to a planet between dream theater and future disco.
OY have already traveled to this place, discovering strange customs, interesting political processes, artistic practices, and never-heard sounds. https://www.oy-music.com

Sea Moya  (DE / CA).
Recently emigrated from Germany to Montreal, Sea Moya released their debut album in October 2018. After their EP “Baltic States” from 2016, songwriting and recording in the Italian Alps went wild with elements of funk, afrobeat, krautrock and electronic music. Now based in Montreal (CA) and after several North American tours including concerts at the SXSW in Austin and the Canadian Music Week in Toronto, she is leading her trip back to home in Europe this fall.

Vague  (AT)
In June 2018 the Wiener Gruppe Vague presents their second album Land. The band plays dreamy, light-footed indie pop, sometimes the five in the arrangement to Jazz and Bossanova-Fusion.
Especially as their songs change between soft, complex soundscapes and subversive post-rock bonds.
An album that looks forward and thus expresses a self-conscious aging of the band.
https://vague1000.bandcamp.com

Modern floor coverings  (DE)
Modern floor coverings have been devised by Joshua Gottmanns and Niklas Wandt at the relevant Berlin corner counters and bulky waste collections.
The vinyl single “I never fall in love / care for myself” (Themes For Great Cities, 2018) was the first sign of life on four-track tape and musically sets the course towards synthpop, cool NDW and herb repeater. Drums heavy, dublastig and at the same time scary pop – sweeter the needs and crises were probably rarely heard.

Bechamel  (DE)
Bechamel is a Europunk trio from Berlin, which was founded in 2017. With their new EP “Mucho” in their luggage, the band are currently touring Europe on a tireless basis.
Classic bass drum / guitar instrumentation creates a hybrid of bone-dry punk, garage rock and humorous psychedelics. https://bechamelband.bandcamp.com

CV Vision  (DE)
Odd Couple s Wüterich plays under his pseudonym CV Vision early electronic kraut-music (live)

Hendrik Czakainski returns to Urban Spree with his 3rd solo show “SWITCH-OVER”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “SWITCH-OVER“, the third solo exhibition of the Berlin-based visual artist Hendrik Czakainski at Urban Spree Galerie.

Hendrik Czakainski’s materia prima is the urban matter captured at different stages of dereliction. Adopting a bird’s eye view, the artist creates large-scale post-architectural panels which are dark anatomical explorations of the urban body.

The artist becomes a forensic architect, collecting evidence of disasters, past, present and future, incorporating them in surreal compositions of large proportions, creating 3-dimensional landscapes which have become void of human presence and frightfully beautiful at the same time. His creations bring us to a state of contemplation and fascination, owing to the combination of shape and colour.

His monumental cuts, holes, and excisions to his fantastic architectural matter reach us beyond the scope of architecture and strip down those man-made artefacts to the minimum, lay them bare, and essentially on the brink of abstraction.

In SWITCH-OVER, the artist distantiates himself from the highly densified housing settlements he has been creating in the past years to pursue a more radical approach. His apocalyptic tableaux give away few clues as to when the mutations happened, what exactly happened, how was it even possible to switch from one state to the next, and which situation we are actually in, leaving the spectator forging his own clues. Are we investigating a foregone reality, are we already processing the next move, or are we trapped in between ?

In his new compositions, we ask ourselves if humanity is still part of the global equation or if the tipping point has been already reached; if a reversal is even possible.

Most works of the show are constructed in two or three parts, creating a dynamic impulse, searching for life in interstitial space, infusing tension, and establishing a mutual dialog, a new social contract of what’s left.
