5-7 pm: LUPO (acoustic-interface, Berlin)
Co-founder of Der Leiseste Club der Welt, works with found sound material of digital everyday life.
The idea of Der Leiseste Club der Welt resulted from the desire to offer events of friends for friends as an alternative to the established weekend clubs. Since 2000, Der Leiseste Club der Welt was hosted in warehouses, water storage facilities and similar places. Since the autumn of 2004, Der Leiseste Club der Welt has ceased its regular and by then non-commercial events, but on request it is still in action.
7-8 pm: MOMUS (cherry red / creation rec./analog baroque / american patchwork, Berlin)
Songwriter, blogger and journalist. For over 20 years, Momus has been producing extremely slanting pop songs on labels in the UK, the United States and Japan. In his songs he builds up his own world, which is characterized by values such as variety, orientalism and respect for others. His descriptions of sexual fantasies and futuristic societies are characterized by a black humor, which is also reflected in the well-read wit and the carefully cultivated persona of the artist. In 2006, Momus participated as an "unreliable museum guide" at the Whitney Biennial in New York City, where he accompanied visitors through the exhibition.
8-10 pm: Thaddi Herrmann (city-center-offices/büro/de:bug, Berlin)
Publisher of the German music magazine de:bug, label manager of the city center offices and musician with herrmann & kleine
Mona Jas: Oriental I and II (96 minutes each, Berlin 2006)
The works Oriental I and II by Mona Jas show Hi8 films and photo contacts, which were recorded in Istanbul about 10 years ago. The image sources provide a glimpse of the spaces in this complex and ever-changing city and its people, which no longer exist today. The film material on one side and the photographic material on the other side are mixed over the course of one and a half hours each in twelve passes, each of eight minutes. The temporal windows are designed in their chronology in such a way that the viewer has seen the image material only after the twelfth and final sequence in its entire extent.
Mona Jas, born 1963 in Rheden, the Netherlands. 1989-94 Studied fine arts at the Hochschule der Künste Berlin. 1995 Master's pupil with Professor Katharina Sieverding. Lives and works in Berlin.
