The show “MEANS TO AN END” at Kreuzberg Pavillon

Friday, 13 September 2013 17:48

“4 artists - 5 cities - 4 boxes - 1 van”, Hannah Cooke, Benedikt Dichgans, Jan Erbelding and Grazyna Rogusky are touring with their conceptual show MEANS TO AN END in Baden-Baden, Ulm, Hamburg, Berlin and Leipzig. They will perform in Berlin at Kreuzberg Pavillon on Saturday 14th, 2013 at 8pm.

The special feature of the show is the fact that the four artists are not trying to hide the before and after of the exhibition. On the contrary, transport, packaging, setup and dismantling and exhibiting itself it are part of the show. The show's setup will thus happen in presence of the audience.

The artists are on a big tour with custom-made boxes that contain and are part of their works. The boxes are actually the initial point of their work and they will remain in the exhibition as their inherent part.

“Promote Diversity” party at Berghain/Panorama Bar

Thursday, 12 September 2013 17:32

The world-famous Berlin nightclub Berghain is hosting on Tuesday 12th of September 2013 at 8pm a “Promote Diversity” party.

“Promote Diversity” supports the idea of diversity everywhere, values like equality on all levels and tolerance. The movement is born after recent laws in Russia against “homosexual propaganda” which authorize oppression of lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender people and their supporters.

Worldwide a lot of clubs take part under the motto »Promote Diversity«, New York’s Output, Munich’s Harry Klein, Paris’ Rex Club, Zurich’s Heaven Club, San Francisco’s Holy Cow and many more. On Tuesday night in Berlin, Berghain with the Panorama Bar supports the protest. The entire admission charge of the party will be donated to the globally active “All Out” organisation which is a charity supporting global LGBT right.

A good way to summarise the campaign is the message shared by the club’s in-house record label Ostgut Ton “Equality and tolerance are basic values that the club and music scene has always supported. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that the level of freedom we have achieved cannot be taken for granted, be it here or elsewhere.”

Line up : Ades Zabel (gmf), Aerea Negrot (bpitch ctrl), Andre Lodemann (best works), Balzer & Hossbach, Ben Klock (klockworks), Bianca Checker, Biggy Van Blond (gmf), Boris (ostgut ton), Cormac (wetyourself!), Dasha Rush (fullpanda), Ellen Allien (bpitch ctrl), Finn Johannsen (hard wax), HGR (tresor), Hops (hard wax), Jennifer Cardini (correspondant), Jessamine (://about blank), Johanna Knutsson (klasse rec), Karin Park LIVE, La Fleur (watergate), Lakuti (uzuri), Marcel Dettmann (mdr), Marcel Fengler (ostgut ton), Mischa (Hard Wax), Miss Italia (tresor), nd_baumecker (freundinnen), Nick Höppner (ostgut ton), Norman Nodge (ostgut ton), Paula Temple (r&s), Portable (perlon), Resom (://about blank), Rødhåd (dystopian), Ryan Elliott (ostgut ton), Sebastian Wilck (watergate), Seth Troxler (visionquest), Spencer Parker (rekids), Steffi (klaxon), Tama Sumo (ostgut ton), Tobi Neumann (cocoon), Virginia (ostgut ton), Voin (blitz), White Collar Boy LIVE.
