We are happy to present our first musical project in Brandenburg. Just north-east of Berlin, by the gates of the beautiful Naturpark Barnim. In collaboration with the Galerie Bernau, musicians based in Berlin are invited to perform on the annual topic Heimat, Herz, Orte at each of six different exhibitions. Join us for a live concert from Brendan Dougherty, followed by a DJ set from experimental dub label Meteosound owner Daniel Meteo, plus art exhibitions from Emerita Pansowova & Ofri Lapid on Friday, 13th August.
Brendan Dougherty is a Berlin based sound artist and musician. Originally from Philadelphia he moved to Berlin in 2002. His solo LP, Sensate was released in 2016 on Entr’acte records and he currently plays drums in Transmit, a side project of Tony Buck (The Necks). Dougherty is equally known for his work in theatre and performance art.
Daniel Meteo moved to Berlin in 1997 and splits his time up between many artistic activities. Along with Tom Thiel, he’s one-half of the duo Bus. He also runs his own label, and frequently plays DJ sets to accompany Bus shows or with Shitkatapult, Oceanclub Radio or Scape, spinning everything from abstract elecronic or mellow reggae, roots and hip-hop.
The Gallery Bernau is a municipal space for contemporary art, located in the heart of the historic centre of Bernau north-east of Berlin. It was opened in September 1989 by the initiative of artists and art lovers, making it the last non-commercial gallery to be founded during GDR. In collaboration with Digital in Berlin, musicians based in Berlin are invited to perform on the annual topic, “Heimat, Herz, Orte” at each of the six exhibition openings. The S2 S-Bahn line can take you from Berlin to Bernau within 35 minutes. The concerts and exhibitions are free of charge.
In the spirit of our Kiezsalon series, the stylistically coherent concerts will last 30 minutes and will take place inside of the gallery sharing space with the exhibited artworks. This is intended to create new artistic forms, open spaces and synergies. The aim of the joint project is to initiate a creative and constructive exchange that will appeal to an audience both from Brandenburg and Berlin and to start a dialogue between two cities that are regionally close to each other and yet have noticeable differences of a cultural, social and economic nature.
