DRUCK BERLIN is back, this time at URBAN SPREE !
Our international festival aims to provide a comprehensive overview of everything print focused.
For this third installment we focus on interaction and engagement; and you will get a chance to liaise with print professionals and experience printing techniques in workshops, live printing sessions and exhibitions.
Gladly we are expanding our ink-jammed program this year to represent all forms of print such as Linocut, Etching, Riso, Litho, Letter Press and Silk Screen.
If that wasn’t enough for you, music, food, coffee and Urban Spree’s beloved craft beer will be providing entertainment for you long after the day’s events have succeeded.

As Part of the 3 week OGINO:KNAUSS exhibition, we would like to invite you for an Aperitif followed by a live set of JD Zazie.
Born in Bolzano (IT), JD ZAZIE is a DJ, turntablist and sound artist based in Berlin. Coming from a DJ and a radiophonic background JD Zazie has explored over the years different approaches of real-time manipulation on fixed recorded sound.
In her work she redefines DJ and electroacoustic activities. As a solo performer, in small groups or large ensembles she moves in an area which is constantly stretching the borders of what is supposed to be DJ mixing, free improvisation and composed music.
Intended as music instruments CDjs, turntables and mixer are her tools to mix the specific sound-sources she plays (mostly electronic music, electroacoustic music, musique concrète, field recordings and improvised music).
The typology of the sound-sources varies from already existing audio publications and sound effects, to self recorded audio files – as live-set and field-recordings -, to selected pre-mixed material. Juxtaposition, decontextualization, fragmentation, repetition, sonic texture, scratch and error are elements of the grammar adopted to relate, organize and rearrange the sound material following her “Äpfelzerstörer’s method”.
In her sound installations she explores everyday life, refers to urbanism and relates to sound atmosphere.
She is a member of the Italian label Burp Enterprise and co-runs Staalplaat Radio.
She has participated in numerous exhibitions and events including High Zero Festival (US), Music Unlimited #27 (AT), Tuned City Bruxelles (BE), Open Provocation festival (UK), Festival Rue du Nord (CH), Audiograft 2012 (UK), Echtzeitmusiktage 2010 (DE), STEIM’s Turntable Night #7 (NL), Audioscoop / IntroInSitu (NL), Avantgarde Festival Schiphorst (DE).

Painted near the back garden of Urban Spree in the Astra/Suicide Club passageway, and most likely to be seen by partygoers getting out from Suicide Circus in the early morning hours, ‘Hangover’s Hot Summer Nights’ is a collaborative piece between Look (Peachbeach/The Weird) and the Low Bros realized in June 2013.
The other half of Peachbeach, Vidam, was in the meantime sketching his piece with Rylsee, a mural that was painted in the next few days in the Urban Spree Artist Wall (covered here).
As part of our reopening program, we have the pleasure to host a new series of paintings and etchings by Sophia Hirsch. Born in 1987, Sophia has studied painting at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin.
Curated by our resident artist Johannes Mundinger of XX Crew, the show will take place on December 1st, 2012 in the ateliers spaces located on the first floor, an artistic space devoted to young emerging artists.
We will update you in the coming days with the full program of the artistic events of Dec. 1st as well as the rest…
