La Plaque Tournante is a non commercial artist space (ex praxis medical cabinet), located in Berlin (Neukölln) and ran by french composer Frédéric Acquaviva and english mezzo-soprano Loré Lixenberg.
Every three months, there is an exhibition, partly based on the Acquaviva Archiv (avant-garde records, tapes, books, ephemera, manuscripts, drawings, paintings, sculptures, films, photographs, multiples, objects…) and (un)related events (concerts, performances…). The openings (« Tabulé Rasa » soirées) are free entry (« Create or Donate« ), and then by appointment only.
This is the time for the only retrospective in this year of lettrist pioneer (90 years old) Maurice Lemaître. Curated by Frédéric Acquaviva, it’s a display of 400 documents and artworks, films, sounds from 1950 to 2016.
Performances will be lettrist poetry of Lemaître performed by Marie-Thérèse Richol Muller and a true event, Conlon Nancarrow Studies Pieces for Mechanical Piano Players adapted for the voice of Loré Lixenberg.
Other concerts or soirées (contemporary music with Loré Lixenberg and others) will be periodically programmed, with or without any particular relation with the ongoing exhibitions focused on «art and writings » (lettrism…), « extended body » (body art, bio art, actionnismus…) and « books and sound » (sound poetry, experimental music…).
