The small pop series PIA concludes at the Ausland club with a matinee program combining film, noise, coffee and cakes as well as progressive DJing.
For PIA, the pop-film expert Tim Tetzner has put together a retrospective of the Berlin video artist and filmmaker Oliver Pietsch, entitled SPLICING THE CINEMATIC SELF: THE ALLUSIVE FILMS OF OLIVER PIETSCH.
Pietsch’s films are fantastic collages of found footage that plunder through film history and formulate meta-themes to then dissolve them again in the subsequent sequence.
Music often plays a central role in his films, but less as a soundtrack and rather as a further element of the picture, which repeatedly intervenes in the narration and sometimes even takes over.
The legendary band HIJOKAIDAN, founded in Kyoto in 1979 by Jojo Hiroshige and Naoki Zushi, is considered the mother of all noise bands. Their uncompromising Harsh Noise absolutely defines the style and has been a key influence on numerous generations of artists.
Hijokaidan started as a performance art project, whose anarchic shows often included extensive devastation of the venue, pelting the audience with garbage and food and public urination. Over the years, the focus of the band has shifted from a performative to a musical emphasis.
For the festive finale of PIA, the Berlin DJ CAMBODIAN KNIVES will pull out all the stops from a record case that is excellently sorted, especially when it comes to Hiphop. His currently preferred style responds to names like Love Trap, Drama Twerk, Sling Bass or Dirty Skew.
This event is presented by Digital in Berlin. Check out our Facebook page to win tickets.
