Kaleidobolt + Orkan

Easy Tiger + Sound of Liberation present:

KALEIDOBOLT + Orkan LIVE!

A Kaleidobolt live show is both a sublime and startling affair: it will leave leave you with a grin on your face, gasping for air and possibly partially deaf. Their music is a dizzying maelstrom of progressive song structures, pulverising riffs and loose psychedelic soundscapes, delivered with joy and ferociousness. Kaleidobolt is a power trio that was formed in 2014 in Helsinki, Finland, they have released two albums: Kaleidobolt and The Zenith Cracks (Pink Tank Records 2015, 2016) and toured all over Europe.

ORKAN

One of the Swedish Gothenburg music scene’s most exciting and brightest shining names at the moment is the prog quintet Orkan. Meaning “Hurricane” in Swedish, it’s both a perfect metaphor for
the band’s sound as well as their recent success. Orkan tell tales of an unjust system, of the ruthlessness of modern society and of the resistance and revenge of Mother Nature, making the amps
scream as well as the on-looking audience. The band touches on difficult themes in with the times, and there is room for both anger, sorrow and joy in their songs. The music of Orkan is dance-friendly and easy to sing along to, but it is also earnest and highly serious. The band’s sound is almost reminiscent of that of classic punk rock, characterized by drummer Moa-Linn Rosenlöf’s and bassist Theresia Dufva’s energizing rhythm section, where an extra punch is thrown into the mix in the form of Kim Bertilsson on the saxophone. Josephine Green’s straight-forward and high-powered riffs blend perfectly together with Fredrik Pettersson’s more melodic Stratocaster solos. The concept of Orkan is undoubtedly inspired by the 1970’s Swedish progressive musical movement, but the band should not at all be described as project based on pure nostalgia. While one foot is resting in the progressive rock heritage, the other is steadily planted in our contemporary times with moving and insightful lyrics that
encourage the listener to reflect and show solidarity with fellow humans.
2017 was an especially exciting year for Orkan. After a successful cross-country tour as the opening act of the prog rock veteran band Nynningen Orkan has played for packed venues wherever they go
and no one is left unaffected by their progress. “Orkan is leading the new prog rock movement”, acknowledges the band Nynningen, and no one seems to object to this claim. In September 2017 Orkan released their self-titled first full-length LP on the Gothenburg based label Alleycat Records. Since before the band have released a 7” single on the same label. The band is currently working on new material and receives new bookings.

Eröffnung SP38: Post-Vandal 2 Kunst Residency

Berlin-based street artist SP38 was invited by Urban Spree Galerie and Boddinale for a special gallery residency alongside the film festival (15-25.02.2018).

After 2 weeks of daily indoor work and street interventions in Friedrichshain, we invite the public to discover the outcome of the art residency over the upcoming weekend together with the artist. 

The exhibition opens on Saturday, February 24th from 14:00 to 23:00 and will continue on Sunday February 25th from 12:00 to 23:00. Visitors will be able to acquire the original works on canvas and paper produced during the residency in addition to a selection of screen prints and stickers.

SP38 will also screen print “Post Vandal” tote bags live on Saturday!

Post Vandal 2“, explores the notion of vandalism at the age of post-graffiti.

“ERASED”
 
When street art pays homage to toying.
 
„Erased“ – „Effacé“ – „Ausradiert“
 
Erased: the walls, the city, the memories, 1UP, childhood, history, words, life, empty monuments, hope, innocence, dreams, signs, green trees.
 
Erase oblivion, rub out memory.
 
Erase the work before it’s finished, self-efface one’s own work by covering it with its duplicate.
 
Erase history, both recent and distant. Erase the cruel crystalline nights with repetitive blood red slogans like so many mute, slowly illegible words. Turn a piece of wall lost in a rigid historical street into an evolving and unfinished artwork that derides content by erasing-replacing the same signs, the same forms, the same useless repetitions.
 
ERASED was written on a large roll of paper found in the trashcan at a kindergarten. The series ran until
the paper ran out. The first one hit the street the day Fidel Castro died …
 
Pasted up mainly in Berlin, Paris, Seoul, Wilhelmshaven …
 
“Street art must reinvent or erase itself before it’s too late.” SP38, Berlin 2017 (Transl. Nicholas Grindell)

A relentless urban wanderer and street typographer, SP38 (b.1960) uses different lo-fi techniques (collages, paste-ups, stickers, screenprints, paintings) to imprint his vision of the city and his letters to the walls. Involved at an early stage with the „Figuration Libre“ movement in Paris and participant to the first graffiti and street art meeting in 1985 with Vive la Peinture, Speedy Graphito, Futura, Miss Tic, and Blek Le Rat, SP38 has navigated in different squat scenes (including the infamous Berlin’s Tacheles) before moving to Berlin in 1995.

A prime witness of the fast-paced gentrification of the metropolis, his art subtly reveals the fractures of the city through successive campaigns and catchy slogans („Who kills Berlin?“, „Erased“, „Escape“, „Occupy“, „Vive la Bourgeoisie“, Vive la Crise“…), where the intimate, personal level often collides with the bigger scale.

The residency will follow its own strenuous path and will increment itself everyday from 12:00 onwards. The public is invited to witness the progression of the residency. A vernissage is scheduled at the end of the residency, on Saturday and Sunday, 24 & 25th of February from 14:00.

Info

Das Kunst- und Kulturhaus Urban Spree in Berlin-Friedrichshain widmet sich auf 1.700qm urbanen Kulturen mit einem vielschichtigen Programm aus Ausstellungen, Künstlerresidenzen, Do-it-Yourself Workshops, Konzerten uvm. Ein Art Store und ein großer Biergarten gehören ebenfalls zum Konzept. 

Gelegen auf einem 70.000qm großen postindustriellen Gelände im Herzen Berlins, steht im Mittelpunkt des Kunstprogramms die 400qm große unabhängige Urban Spree Galerie mit Fokus auf zeitgenössiche urbane Kunst. Der Galerie kommt ihre Verwurzelung in einem künstlerischen Ökosystem zugute; ihr ambitioniertes Residenzprogramm bietet geladenen KünstlerInnen und FotografInnen einen idealen Raum zum Experimentieren.

Monatlich finden kuratierte Ausstellungen in der Galerie statt, die nicht selten auch die Außenräume miteinbeziehen. Eye-Catcher ist dabei die sog. Artist Wall, eine 15m lange und 8m hohe Außenfassade zur Warschauer Straße, die mit bis zu 100.000 Besuchern am Tag zu den frequentiertesten Verkehrsschalgadern Berlins gehört. Zu den KünstlerInnen, die diese Wand bisher bespielt haben, zählen Above, Klone, Zevs, Broken Fingaz Crew, Twoone, Low Bros, Nychos, 1UP Crew, The Grifters, Peachbeach, Rylsee, m-city, Johannes Mundinger, Anthony Lister u.v.m.

Der Urban Spree Buchladen befindet sich im Galeriegebäude und listet eine handverlesene Auswahl an Graffiti-, Street Art- und Fotografie-Titeln, deren gemeinsame Klammer eine Vision von Städten und postindutriellen, verfallenen Räumen darstellt. Der integrierte Art Store beinhaltet eine große Auswahl an Siebdruckarbeiten lokaler und internationaler Künstler, die eng mit uns zusammen arbeiten. Hier können ebenfalls T-Shirts erworben werden, die vor Ort designt und im Siebdruckverfahren bedruckt werden. Um unsere reichhaltige Auswahl an Fanzines und selbstveröffentlichten Publikationen zu erweitern, haben wir 2016 als neues Projekt unseren eigenen Verlag gegründet, um Eigenpublikationen voranzutreiben.

Die Künstlerresidenzen bilden das Herzstück unseres künstlerischen Ökosystems. Mit einer Mischung aus permanenten und temporären Ateliers und Gaststudios befruchten sich sich die KünstlerInnen stets wechselseitig und liefern mit ihrem Output einen erheblichen Beitrag zum künstlerischen Geist des Hauses. Zur Zeit bestreiten folgende KünstlerInnen eine Langzeit-Residenz in unseren Ateliers: Andrea Wan, Rylsee, Tavar Zawacki/Above, Johannes Mundinger. Die Siebdruckwerkstatt Mother Drucker von Dolly Demoratti rundet diesen Bereich ab.

Regelmäßige Workshops wie z.B. der monatliche „Make your Own Sign“ Lettering-Workshop von Rylsee und Otto Baum von KLUB7 bieten unseren Gästen die Möglichkeit, selbt kreativ zuwerden.

Der Urban Spree Konzertraum lädt ganzjährig zu einem ausgiebigen Live Musik-Programm ein, das quer durch verschiedene Genres von Garage oder Psychedelic Rock bis hin zu innovativer elektronischer Musik feinste Undergroundströmungen aufgreift. Mit den Summer Sessions holt das Urban Spree in den Sommermonaten zusätzlich die besten lokalen Musiker von Freitag bis Sonntag auf die Bühne des Biergartens.

Das Kunst- und Kulturhaus Urban Spree beheimatet zahlreiche Festivals und Events wie z. B. das Pictoplasma Festival, das Krake Festival, die ComicinvasionBerlin, das Berlin Seafood Festival, das Amaze Berlin, das Midsommar Festival, das Druck Berlin Festival oder die Berlin Graphic Days. In unregelmäßigen Abständen finden Filmvorführungen, Dinner Events, Food Festivals und vieles mehr statt.

In den Sommermonaten gehört der Biergarten zu den entspanntesten Hangouts Berlins und führt ein eigenes Sortiment an lokalen und überregionalen Craft-Bieren, Erfrischungsgetränken, lokal gerösteten Kaffee von Bonanza Coffee und veganes Eis am Stiel von Paletas. Unser Street Food Container versorgt unsere Gäste mit hausgemachten Speisen rund um die Uhr.
