Einlass: 20 Uhr, Trucks: 21 Uhr, Priests: 22 Uhr

Priests sind das 2011 gegründete Quartett um Katie Alice Greer (Vocals), Daniele Daniele (Schlagzeug), G.L. Jaguar (Gitarre) und Taylor Mulitz (Bass).

Und wir erinnern uns: in der Peripherie Washington, DC’s wurde nicht nur Hardcore erfunden, nein, er wurde dort auch stets erweitert. Angefangen mit den Bad Brains, über Fugazi und deren Dischord Imprint, Ian Svenonius’ The Nation of Ulysses, später Q and not U und den fantastischen Black Eyes, bis eventuell sogar hin zu Chain and the Gang. Allesamt Bands, deren politische Grundhaltung sich durch eine gewisse musik-ästhetische Sperrigkeit fortformulierte – zwar nicht unbedingt in Form eines einheitlichen Sounds – jedoch unisono und unmißverständlich als klares Statement gegen eine white-male-dominated Rock’n’Roll-Konditionierung.

Und nun, zwei Jahre nach der Veröffentlichung ihrer erstmals überregional wahrgenommenen EP Bodies and Control and Money and Power (auf ihrem eigenen Sister Polygon-Label), legen Priests unter produktionstechnischer Mithilfe von Hugh McElroy (von besagten Black Eyes) und Kevin Erickson ein Album nach, dass so swirly, auf den Punkt und post-Kathleen Hanna ist, dass jedes letzte Julie Ruin-Album freiwillig aus dem Regal fällt.

Zwischen hymnischen NoWave-Eskapaden, funky Post-Punk-Stompern und melancholisch flirrenden Noise-Ausbrüchen treiben Greer’s angerörte Vocals wie Schlingpflanzen durch das Rhythmus-Gerüst. Eklektizismus und Groovyness bilden die Hauptkoordinaten im Sound der Priests. Und daraus ergeben sich ganz zwangsläufig Traditionslinien: New Wave-Koryphäen wie Kleenex, Bush Tetras, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks kommen in den Sinn; Nineties-Phänomene wie Dog Faced Hermans oder aber auch Lush lassen sich verorten; in ätherischen Essenzen kann man sogar The Creatures und Siouxsie and the Banshees nachspüren.

“The pictures here highlight how artists have brought the creative activism of subversive graffiti into (or onto) these commercialised infrastructures of urban mobility. As trucks and vans move consumable goods of the elite urban economy around the city, they carry with them the viruses of activism. Like the New York subway trains in the 1970s, the graffiti trucks of Paris are a mobile gallery of graffiti and its affront to the sterile spaces of urban commodity movement.” – Dr. Oli Mould.

With a foreword by human geographer Dr. Oli Mould The Graffiti Trucks of Paris was published in March 2017 and featured in Huck Magazine, HERO Magazine and Tate Britain acquired a copy for its library collection.

Tomasz Kobialka: Monster Trucks and Fireworks

Galerie KLOT and Urban Spree present the second exhibition in the Artist Curated Section of Urban Spree, a space run by resident artists and focused on emerging visual artists.

Monster trucks and Fireworks
Over the past 50 years women have struggled to confront and transcend the way they where defined as women, and now it is time for men to do the same. Misogyny and chauvinism are not acceptable cultural ideas or practices – but can the macho-bullshit be striped away and redefined, or as Western men are we stuck with it? This show is a exploration of male identity – a look into what it means to be a male, to define yourself as masculine but to step away from the normative characteristics associated with men. Can we get beyond the violence, fast cars and cheap sex and express a new masculinity?
A series of oil paintings and drawings by Tomasz Kobialka.

Tomasz Kobialka is a Polish born Australian painter, presently living and working in Berlin.



« Here Comes the Bad News »: New Solo Show with Jim Avignon

Jim Avignon returns to Urban Spree Galerie for his second solo show « Here Comes the Bad News », 2 years after « Permanent Jetlag ».

In his only exhibition in Berlin for the year 2019, Jim Avignon describes the mood in the world and in Berlin in particular with his usual wit.

Gentrification, Global Warming, Surveillance Capitalism, Alt Right… here comes indeed the bad news. His paintings are a mash-up of cartoony figuration, expressionistic composition, – a maximum of expression with a minimum of lines.

Jim Avignon is a painter, illustrator and conceptual artist. Always ready to confront the establishment he is torn between pop art, street art, Picasso on acid or simply being the fastest painter in the world. His signature style consists of vivid colours, a biting humor, unpretentious materials and a mind numbing output. His art works like pop music in DIY mode.

According to the legend, the artist became stranded in the Provence city of Avignon at some point in the ’80s when his car unexpectedly broke down. He resorted to painting Dali images onto pavements, gradually raising money to repair his car. The name stayed.

In the early 90s, he became an ubiquitous painter of the techno movement, designing makeshift clubs and Love Parade trucks.

By creating a colorful flood of affordable, rapidly-produced works, Jim disrupts the well-oiled art market and pervades it with black humor and self-irony. Avignon’s images caricature the modus operandi of the art market and are also aimed at people who are bored or deterred by the gold-framed aura of so-called high art. « Good Artists Go To The Museum, Bad Artists Go Everywhere ».

The Joy of Mechanical Force

Early Industrial and Avant-Garde, Berlin school and Psychedelia originated in the 70s. The character of the event is purely Experimental. Reconciling different disciplines such as Performance and Video Art. The Joy of Mechanical Forces is a meeting, where the Acts will melt with the spontaneity of the moment. We will travel to other places and to other times. Recovering the Energy of places that perished in time such as Zodiac Free Arts Lab. Attracting those who want to share and breathe an Analog air, a new Multicoloured flavour! Metallic sounds that collide with each other like trucks on the road, heraldic voices that pronounce the arrival to other dimensions, a ritual that brings us closer to Catharsis…
