And guess who may be taking you for a ride today? The Surrealist Taxi is back and with a performing passenger!The BALLAD OF SKINNY LATTES AND VINTAGE CLOTHING is a solo performance installation, accompanied by a driver, navigator and occasional passengers. Its subject is globalisation and the effect on our high streets. “The Manifesto of the Revolutionary Middle Classes” will serve as our central theme as we take an aleatoric journey through Berlin chronicling the rise of the middle classes as they invade the city with fair-trade coffee and chi-chi retro clothes. The performance will take place in the Surrealist Taxi – which will also be available for booking if we choose to answer the phone: +49 (0) 151 53100608
New projects for today are also:
FAMILIAR BINARIES by Seda Yildiz, who asks “…but do you think is it possible to present a work of art without talking about it?” The idea of Seda’s un-going project “Familiar Binaries”, originates in the very well-rounded idea of “unknown”; indirectly talking of history, theory, image, a document, a book; but more of the unknown in a work of art; a progress of artist among the production way. Her project starts at 20:00 at District Kunst- und Kulturförderung (free entrance).
The crew at Waterloo, a former public toilet turned into a fantastic space for music, performances and experimentations of various kind, brings you today AV FORMAT with Moran Sanderovich, Dísa and Wooguru. Three performances, each lasting 30 minutes that will touch and twist their way around ideas of sexuality, repetition, space, body, uncanny, body-horror, alterity and more…It starts at 21:30 (entrance: donations)
