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 Australian experimental guitarist Julia Reidy, followed by a DJ set from Berlin-based music selector konkrit, plus art exhibitions from Ana Hupe, Gudrun Sailer, Anna Lauenstein & Max Hilsamer.
Julia Reidy is a Berlin-based guitarist and composer from Sydney. Her 12 string guitar instrumental compositions are the culmination of vivid exploratory and improvisatory processes. Last year Reidy released her Editions Mego debut album ‘Varnish’, the third and final piece in a trio of releases, which also includes ‘brace, brace’ and ‘In Real Life’.
konkrit is the DJ and occasional writing alias of Kristoffer Cornils, a music journalist and selector based in Berlin.
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.
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.
