All Day Book Launch Party

11694955_10152982484428857_7575464270330926603_nTwo of Berlin’s most popular independent websites, Abandoned Berlin and Slow Travel Berlin, are joining forces on Sunday July 19th to celebrate their respective new books.“Stories From The City: A Berlin Anthology” is Slow Travel Berlin’s third publication. The large-format, full-colour volume collects almost thirty of the best articles that have appeared in Slow Travel Berlin since its inception in 2010 – all re-edited and re-designed – along with several newly commissioned pieces and exclusive photo-essays.With articles covering a wide-range of Berlin’s social and cultural life – from 18th Century salonnières to 20th century post-punks, neglected urban districts to contemporary street photography – Stories from the City captures the allure and fascination of a city that offers endless rewards to those willing to explore it.

“Verlassene Orte/Abandoned Berlin“, published by serial trespasser and Abandoned Berlin author Ciarán Fahey, is also a compilation of stories, taken from some of his own favourite abandoned spaces in and around the city.

http://www.abandonedberlin.com/2015/02/the-book-verlassene-orte-abandoned.html

The collaborative launch party will take place in the Galerie and Biergarten starting at around 2pm and ending when the last person has fallen over, the day will feature feel-good summery sounds (reggae, soul, hip hop, funk, disco) all day long from DJs Döner Summer, Zed Lepellin and guests.

The Urban Spree Summer Sessions will feature the soulful Ray Mann Three in a 3-hour outdoor gig from 16:00 to 19:00.
Add a specially designed pub quiz (with prizes!), street food, a full bar, live painting, photo exhibitions, specially discounted and signed books – and a guaranteed lack of boring speeches!* – and you have what will almost certainly be the best summer party since, well, the last great summer party you attended.


Violence Conjugale + Videodrome

Teenager Menopause Series / 2 

Violence Conjugale (Born Bad / Teenager Menopause) FR

14680638_341040656241407_5062143151365485442_n

From completely opposite cultural backgrounds, one is the son of a rich german industrial man and the other of a craftsman, Hans and André meet early in highschool. Their mutual love for Bowie and Kenneth Anger pushes them to flunk school and smoke in their tiny school movie room. There they dream of an ideal future, made of space travels and industrial music. Feeling the pressure from this private institution, they eventually decide to go to Berlin and see what taste has decadence there. They meet Marianne Katza, an excentric woman who tells them to come to an artist squat in Mitte district. As Warhol’s Factory, the place is an indistincte magma of ideas, musics and drugs. Here, as André begins to fiddle with a korg ms20 synth (he never told where he found the money to afford it) and dreams of exquisites performances, in another room, Hans tries to write his wildest nightmares to exorcise them. Marianne decides to introduce the future band to one of her lovers: Marc Berron, a young arrogant and rich kid blessed with a perfect ear. He helps them to slow down their drugs issues and take a new direction: to play a cold and personal music in pop format but with a feeling of urgency which caracterized young berliners. So he kidnaps them in his own studio for several weeks to experiment, give feelings and eventually find Violence Conjugale’s ultimate sound.

M.Rux, who is known for his remixes and his DJ sets around the German capital, is more than just “a sample guy”.
The musician, originally from Rostock, has an interesting and chequered musical history and says he’s often torn between real instruments and the digital world.
His sets travel through time and continents, eclectic, electronic but always organic.

The garden as always invites you to chill and listen to beautiful international grooves and laid back electronics, selected by your hosts Cher Monsieur & Renzo joined by Aroma Pitch.
These chaps from Cologne certainly know how it’s done. Their unique dj sets lure hundreds of music lovers to their gigs all over Europe !

ogino:knauss | Re>Centering Periphery: Marginal Notes/Randbemerkungen Exhibition

“Randbemerkungen | Marginal Notes” is a photographic exhibition summarizing 8 years of urban explorations by the ogino:knauss collective into the modernist built environment. After their award-winning movies about Cuba and Moscow, the exhibition also becomes the platform to launch the new movie project about Berlin, called “Randbemerkungen”, as well as the release of travelogue books about Berlin and Cuba and the launch of “Reconnoitering Berlin“, a series of urban “dérives” that will investigate the urban identity of the Hauptstadt through multiple perspectives.

MarginalNotes_OginoKnauss_web2

For 3 weeks, Urban Spree will host an installation of printed works and videos, completed by a series of events including live concerts, talks, workshops, book presentations, screenings and performances.

About OGINO:KNAUSS
ogino:knauss is a Berlin-based, independent research group dealing with audiovisual language, urban cultures and human environment’s transformations.

R>CP PROJECT
Re:centering Periphery originated in 2006 with a live-media work commissioned by the Biennial del Arte de la Havana. Starting from Alamar, a new city built in the 70s in Cuba, the group investigated everyday life practices that inhabit, question and reinvent urban peripheries produced as a result of modernist ideology. The main outcome of the project was a film-series produced through a participative methodology. Until now the group has worked extensively in La Habana and Moscow, with the production of two films, set preparatory works and surveys in Kiev, Belgrade and Berlin; and opened up research files on such cities as Mexico City, Casablanca, Marseille, Tel Aviv, Detroit and Hong Kong. The project advancements are regularly published on the R>CP blog.

R>CP FILMS

The first film in the series “Doble Forza” (2008, 30’) tells the story of a self-constructed new city built with Soviet-style prefabricated panels in the 70’s in the outskirt of La Habana. It has been awarded with the Best International Documentary at the Istanbul Architecture Film Festival in 2008 and at Sezze Videofest.

The second episode “Dom Novogo Byta“, explores the imagined and built landscape of Moscow, confronting utopian visions which emerged in the light of the October revolution with the reality of contemporary post-communist Russia. The film takes the cue from the dilapidated Narkomfin building, a prototype for revolutionary communes designed in 1927 by Moisei Ginzburg, today facing hard survival in a central plot of land highly attractive to real-estate speculators.

During the exhibition the two films will be screened at Il Kino in Neukölln.

R>CP EXHIBITION
The exhibition displays a selection of photographs of La Habana, Moscow, Kiev, Belgrade and Berlin, capturing the urban and social landscape of modernist peripheries and the inner margins of the metropolis. The textures, geometries and patterns designed by the brutal architectural practices of the 20th century are shown alongside cracks, eruptions, signs of colonization and the re-appropriation by the everyday life.
Two video installations complete the set up, representing opposite directions of research. The first, focusing on the abstract substance of the architectural modernist vision, shows geometrical patterns and symmetries being digitally explored and transformed into a hypnotic graphic landscape. In the second work, conceived as a study for the forthcoming full-feature film, the attention is conversely shifted towards the human body- “Der Mensch, das Maß aller Dinge”, following through a longer sequence an elderly hindered man slowly crossing the streets of Berlin, Mitte. A live audiovisual performance will be presented at the opening night.

R>CP OPEN WORKSHOP
More than a showcase of past productions, the event at Urban Spree is primarily intended as a discursive platform for realising the new film project Randbemerkungen.

During these 3 weeks, a series of events will involve known as well as new collaborators of the group presenting and performing theme-related works in progress. According to the participative methodology of the group, interdisciplinary conversations, live audio video performances, live sonorisation of films, workshops of spatial assessment and dérives, will act as resource-material for the upcoming film. During the last days of the exhibition, the launch of Reconnoitering Berlin will take place, a series of urban dérives that in the following months will investigate the urban identity of Berlin according to multiple perspectives.

R>CP BOOKS
The Re:centering Periphery Travelogues is a new series of photographic essays documenting the survey into global urban peripheries done by the collective:

-La Habana InT/Ext (2006) is a 5-week diary shot in Cuba, focusing on the strong dichotomies affecting the Cuban social landscape.

The basic cinematographic dialectics interior / exterior is variously reinterpreted as centre and periphery, legal and illegal, private and public…

-Exposing Berlin, is the result of a long-term observation of the transformations of the city since 2007, when the collective moved its base. The photographic essay dedicated to Mitte and Friedrichshain points at the conflation of image and spatial production in a neo-liberal urban development. The camera investigates the attempt to reinvent a unified central identity of Berlin in the place of the fragmented urban reality which carries scars and memories of a divided past.

The R>CP Travelogues are printed in a limited edition of 200 copies, available at Urban Spree’s Bookshop.

R>CP Crowdfunding
One of the exhibition’s main purposes is to sustain the future development of the project and support the realisation of the film Berlin Randbemerkungen. In the occasion of the exhibition a crowdfunding campaign will be launched to support the pre-production work for the film. Photographic prints, silkscreen prints, books and other limited-edition products will be on sale during the events at Urban Spree.

FULL PROGRAM: The full program of events accompanying the exhibition is available here.

R>CP RANDBEMERKUNGEN is a production of Ogino Knauss and Tesserae Urban Social Research in association with Urban Spree.
