Don’t miss the finissage screening of Adonis XIV & Sel’kincek this Saturday!

The two films Adonis XIV (1977) by Bako Sadykov and Sel’kincek (The Swing, 1993) by Aktan Arym Kubat represent two outstanding examples of Central Asian cinema before and after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Shot sixteen years apart from each other, these two shorts culminate in poetic film languages of the region—one reflecting a harsh reality through the prism of a slaughterhouse, the other diving into a coming-of-age story by revealing an intimate universe during the perestroika years.

As part of the finissage of AS THOUGH WE HID THE SUN IN A SEA OF STORIES, the screening of the films is followed by a discussion with Aktan Arym Kubat, moderated by Saodat Ismailova.

Take part in a performative sonic labratory workshop with .now this Saturday!

SOUND STORIES SILENT SITE is a performative laboratory for improvised music and storytelling. Step into a sonic playground and set aside a formal understanding of sound, composition, performance, and writing. SOUND STORIES SILENT SITE wonders how a collective ethics of a place sounds, especially when inspired by difference and contradiction.

The multiplicity of voices and lineages present in the exhibition AS THOUGH WE HID THE SUN IN A SEA OF STORIES serves as a dynamic starting point for the ephemeral laboratory. By engaging with, reflecting on, and branching off from the artworks, you are invited to become part of a musical ensemble that experiments with sound modules, synthesizers, storytelling, and orchestration.

Join us this Sunday for the finissage performance by Sergio Zevallos 🦋

For the finissage of EXERCISES IN TRANSFORMATION, Sergio Zevallos, in collaboration with artist Luisa Ungar, invites the audience to engage in a performative act of communicating with HKW’s architecture as a site inscribed by political and geopolitical histories. The performance IN THE BELLY OF DEMOCRACY: LARGE DIVIDED OVAL on Sunday, 14 January approaches the building as a body that is imprinted with symbols inherited from the Cold War.

By proposing a parkour through the building, a series of exercises make room to listen to and speculate on the present moment. The performance tackles the Henry Moore sculpture “Large Divided Oval: Butterfly” (1987), located in the Violeta Parra Pond and, as with many of Moore’s public works of the post-war era, regarded as an allegorical symbol of Western democracy. Through this engagement, the performance fosters various dialogues and clashes with the semiotics of political values and their historic and current manifestations.

A heartfelt invitation to our last programme weekend of the year...

Join us this Saturday for “RAW ON—Ancestral technologies of resistance”, a collaboration by choreographer and visual artist Ana Pi and producer DJ Firmeza. Guided by the sonic threads created by DJ Firmeza, Ana Pi’s choreography constitutes a new reading of traditional sacred and popular dances, where there is always a dialogue between the basic steps and the drumming.

Over the course of 2023, HKW has been host to numerous communitarian cultures across its programmes. The workshop series “Bullerengue—Planting the Seeds for Community Healing” lays a particular focus on rhythmic cultures. To wrap up this year’s live programmes, previous and new participants are invited to take part in a session this Sunday led by Berlin-based vocal folklore facilitator Carolina Riaño and drummers Leo Mejía and Dante Parraguez.

The workshop is followed by a screening of María Fernanda Carrillo Sánchez’s documentary “Cantadoras—Musical Memories of Life and Death in Colombia”, expanding on how traditional music, including bullerengue, has served to resist, sooth, and narrate the experience of violence, and to lead the way out of it.

During the weekend, you can also join two walks through the exhibitions with Shohreh Shakoory (Exhibition Practices) in Persian and with Eva Stein (Cultural Education) in German.

Fragments of the Exhibition—A Closer Look 🔎

The work of Małgorzata Mirga-Tas offers a first-hand representation of Roma culture, portraying it as vibrant and contemporary, while deeply rooted in a rich heritage. Using large-format chromatic textile collages and painting as her primary mediums, the artist captures the history and daily life of Bergitka-Roma communities in her hometown of Czarna Góra and in the broader Podhale and Spisz regions of south-eastern Poland. Inspired by daily interactions and experiences in her home and community, Mirga-Tas’s oeuvre acts as a powerful counterpoint to the stigmatizing stereotypes of Roma people frequently perpetuated by external gazes. In her most recent series of textile collages, the artist brings to life scenes from her family archive, capturing three generations of Mirga women pictured in the familial embrace of daily life in their hometown during the 1960s and 70s, set against the backdrop of the communist regime in Poland.

Introducing the SOOTHING SUN WEEKEND 🎧

At HKW, art is something that we believe should be equally accessible to all. A quiet environment can help visitors concentrate on the works and content of an exhibition or make the space more suitable for those who use hearing aids or have particular sensitivities.

To provide an engaging experience for as many people as possible, the audiovisual works in the exhibition “As Though We Hid the Sun in a Sea of Stories. Fragments for a Geopoetics of North Eurasia” are modulated for the SOOTHING SUN WEEKEND on 9 and 10 December. Over the course of the weekend, the audio tracks of video works are mostly available via headphones and the noise level in the entire building is reduced.

+++

Das HKW ist überzeugt, dass Kunst für so viele Menschen wie möglich zugänglich sein sollte, und sie ist hier meist mit der Intensität aller Sinne zu erleben. Viele Menschen bevorzugen jedoch – ob wegen persönlicher Vorlieben oder der Nutzung von Hörgeräten – eine ruhige Umgebung, um sich konzentriert den Werken und Inhalten einer Ausstellung widmen zu können.

Daher werden am SOOTHING SUN WEEKEND am 9. und 10. Dezember die audiovisuellen Arbeiten der Ausstellung “Als hätten wir die Sonne verscharrt im Meer der Geschichten. Fragmente zu einer Geopoetik Nordeurasiens” anders präsentiert als sonst. Die Klangkulissen von Videoarbeiten sind zumeist über Kopfhörer verfügbar, außerdem wird der Geräuschpegel im gesamten Haus reduziert.

We are honored to have witnessed INHERITED TESTIMONIES this weekend...

Since 2022, Forensis and Forensic Architecture have collaborated with the Ovaherero Traditional Authority (OTA) and the Nama Traditional Leadership Assocation (NTLA) on research into the German colonial era genocide between 1904-1908 in present-day Namibia. INHERITED TESTIMONIES is a live performance of culturally inherited, collective testimonies, delivered by traditional leaders and oral historians within a continuously transformed visual and auditory immersive environment—a large projection of evolving architectural and environmental scenes—conceived by Forensic Architecture/Forensis.

It was a great honor to host Ovaherero Paramount Chief Prof. Dr. Mutjinde Katjiua who was accompanied by his Chief Kaangundue and his Senior Councillors, and the Director of OTA, as well as Deputy Chairperson of the Nama Traditional Leaders Association Gaob Dawid Hanse.

The project is a partnership between Forensic Architecture, Forensis, NTLA and OTA, conducted in collaboration with the Staffordshire University Centre of Archaeology, ECCHR and Medico International. Supported by Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation), as part of the research project “German Colonial Genocide in Namibia: Infrastructure of Genocide”.

Join us for TONGUE AND THROAT MEMORIES with Chef Sean Sherman tomorrow 🌽

Sean Sherman, also known as The Sioux Chef, has dedicated his three-decades-long cooking practice to revitalizing Indigenous culinary traditions of the Americas and beyond. His work has greatly contributed to the preservation of cooking methods of Sioux communities but also to a greater understanding of the food systems developed on ancestral lands.

The Tongue and Throat Memories series is activated in the frame of a conversation on Indigenous culinary knowledge, food justice, and food sovereignty with Chef Sherman, Gunnar Cynybulk, and Marie Helene Pereira. The next evening, a curated dinner hosted by Chef Sherman is followed by tea and poetry readings by Chef Sean Sherman, Atabey Carlos Maria Romero, Leyla Rossbach, and Sara Morais dos Santos Bruss. The event is also an occasion to screen the film “Gather “(2020) directed by Sanjay Rawal.

Angélique Kidjo’s music embraces a wide spectrum of rhythms from the African musical legacy such as Congolese rumba, Nigerian highlife, West African funk, and Cameroonian makossa. Alongside this she combines her interest in tracing African roots in Jamaican reggae, zouk, guaguancó and descarga from the Caribbean, rock, blues and soul from North America, and samba from Brazil.

With her timeless understanding of genres, energetic performances, and innovative productions, Kidjo’s music unfolds an array of sonic cultures and languages creating a unique space, from vintage to afrofuturism, from poetry to melody, from Benin to the world, back and forth. Kidjo is indeed not only one of the most important artists of her home country but also a key figure of international African music.

+++++

Angélique Kidjos Musik deckt ein faszinierendes Spektrum an Rhythmen afrikanischer Musik ab: Kongolesischer Rumba, nigerianischer Highlife, westafrikanischer Funk und kamerunische Makossa sind nur einige ihrer Inspirationen. Ihre Suche nach afrikanischen Wurzeln verbindet sie mit jamaikanischem Reggae, Zouk, Guaguancó und Descarga aus der Karibik, mit Rock, Blues und Soul aus Nordamerika sowie Samba aus Brasilien.

Mit ihrem zeitlosen Genreverständnis, ihren energiegeladenen Auftritten und innovativen Produktionen entfaltet Kidjo einen einzigartigen Raum für Klangkulturen und -sprachen, die von Vintage bis Afrofuturismus, von Poesie bis Melodie, von Benin in die ganze Welt und zurückreichen. Kidjo ist nicht nur eine der wichtigsten Künstler*innen ihres Heimatlandes – sie ist auch eine Schlüsselfigur der internationalen afrikanischen Musik.

Open Call for Workshop Participation ✏️

The workshop INTERGENERATIONAL SOLIDARITIES: GRAPHIC NOVELS takes place within the framework of ECHOS DER BRUDERLÄNDER— a multidisciplinary project that critically maps the German Democratic Republic’s complex history and relations with its so-called ‘brother countries.’ This workshop seeks to foreground the liberatory aesthetics of storytelling by leveraging visual storytelling practices such as graphic novels, comic books, and poster art among others.

The two-day workshop in Berlin is mentored by visual storyteller Hamed Eshrat and moderated by Thu Hoài Trần. It brings together former GDR contract workers or foreign students, themselves artistic practitioners, such that they can engage with younger generations.

📧 Since places are limited, please submit a brief statement of interest until November 13 to workshops.bruderlä[email protected]

INTERGENERATIONAL SOLIDARITIES: GRAPHIC NOVELS

Der Workshop nutzt visuelle Praktiken wie Graphic Novels, Comics und Plakatkunst, um auf die befreiende Ästhetik des Storytellings aufmerksam zu machen.

Der zweitägige Workshop unter Leitung des Comicautors und Illustrators Hamed Eshrat und moderiert von Thu Hoài Trần gibt Zeitzeug*innen, die in Ostdeutschland Vertragsarbeiter*innen oder ausländische Studierende waren und selbst künstlerisch tätig sind, Gelegenheit, mit Menschen jüngerer Generationen in einen Austausch zu treten.

Free admission on Museum Sunday – join us for guided tours through our current exhibitions!

AS THOUGH WE HID THE SUN IN A SEA OF STORIES––FRAGMENTS FOR A GEOPOETICS OF NORTH EURASIA is an exhibition and research project that races the many worlds that have existed in parallel, often in spite of or against the oppressive visions imagined by successive regimes—the Russian Empire, the USSR, and contemporary Russia—that have controlled areas across Eastern Europe and Central and North Asia.

EXERCISES IN TRANSFORMATION––SERGIO ZEVALLOS is dedicated to the more than four decades of Sergio Zevallos’s practice of embodying, investigating, and transmuting dominant knowledge systems, from whence other ways of thinking and imagining sprang up.

🎤 Learn more about the exhibition with us: This Sunday at 13:00, you can join a guided tour through AS THOUGH WE HID THE SUN IN A SEA OF STORIES in Ukranian with artist Anton Kats. At 15:00, Daniel Neugebauer (HKW, Cultural Education) will give a guided tour through both exhibitions in German.

🗣️ At 16:00 you can join an Interactive Guided Tour in German and English with the Siribox. The Siribox consists of experiments and instructions for visitors to playfully engage with works of the exhibition. In analog form or using an app, visitors are invited to embark on an interactive guided tour with members of the Shadow Museum in order to experiment and discover hidden aspects of artworks together.

🪩From 14:00-18:00 we offer free childcare, and from 15:00-17:00 there will be a Children’s Discotheque (under parental supervision).

📧 Register for the interactive tour with the Siribox and book our childcare via [email protected].

Meeting point for all events is the ticket counter in the Sylvia Wynter Foyer.
