Off The Radar Booking at Urban Spree

Off The Radar Booking presents:
Serengeti from the legendary label Anticon and K The I???.

The alternative Hip Hop artist Serengeti from Chicago/Illinois, a member of Sisyphus along with Son Lux an Sufjan Stevens.
With his Serengeti solo show he brings his sharp depature from most mainstream Hip Hop to Europe. Serengeti has been active since the early aughts and is known among cerebral rap nerds for his seemingly flippant insight, hilarious characters and sloppy perfectionism.

K The I ???
The grand sympathetic is live electronica and live rap in a way that has hardly been offered so far.
One of the strongest voices and most powerful (underground) rappers of our time, all beats are self-produced and constantly improvised at the shows. The work of art K-The I ???, is
headnicker sound for advanced!

Jim Avignon: « Business as Unusual » Book Release + Concert

4 months after his solo show « Permanent Jetlag« , Jim Avignon returns to Urban Spree Galerie for the special launch of « Business as Unusual« , the most complete monograph of the German artist to date, spanning 30 years of an unacademic career in 400+ illustrations.

 

Jim will sign his book and perform unplugged as Neoangin together with Jens Friebe on the grand piano.

Concert 19:00
Free Entry

 

The painter, illustrator and conceptual artist Jim Avignon is one of the most unconventional characters in the current German art world. Vibrant colours and unpretentious materials, a good dose of wit and an enormous output are his trademarks. For the first time an opulent monograph allows a comprehensive insight into the complex oeuvre of the artist, who has always sought confrontation with the establishment and who could never decide whether he wanted to be pop-art, street-art, Picasso on acid or whether he was simply the fastest painter in the world.
Avignon’s narrative about « things not going as planned » is full of concise quips and not without a certain delight. He expounds his peculiar relationship with the art market and describes the exhibitions that finally put him on the map as an exceptional artist. We get to read about odd detours into the world of commerce, a stolen bear, paintings that need ironing, call-for-help socks and how a mural almost landed him in jail. Avignon spills the beans about the high and lows of one of the strangest careers the art world has seen in the last 25 years—expect a lot of detail, an ironic undertone and an abundance of images.
 
« Business as Unusual » is a hardcover, 160 pages, 400 illustrations book published by the local imprint The Green Box with texts written by ATAK, Sandra Prill, and Lars Willumeit.
