MINSKBAR w/ Perera Elsewhere and Kaan Bulak at DAS MINSK / Thursday, 20.6.2024

The series MINSKBAR will once again take place three times this year as part of the summer exhibition. On one Thursday each month, DAS MINSK and the bar will be open longer in the evening. There will then be an opportunity to speak with mediators in the exhibition and to linger over music in Café HEDWIG and on the MINSK’s terraces. The music program of MINSKBAR will continue to be curated by Robert Lippok.

Award-winning experimental pop auteur, Sasha Perera aka Perera Elsewhere is a producer, songwriter and DJ who has garnered critical acclaim from Pitchfork, NPR, FADER, Vogue, KCRW, and more. Her use of technology to create and to experiment with her voice, lyrics, percussive beats, deep bass frequencies and sound design to explore the human experience, all led to the ‘Doom-Folk’ coined sound of the Perera Elsewhere project, where she found a home on LA label Friends of Friends, releasing two widely-acclaimed albums.​

Elsewhere, but always rooted. No matter where Perera has found herself musically– from live shows & DJ sets at institutions such as Berghain, the Guggenheim, the Hamburg Philharmonic, Mutek Festival, or music licensed for Ava Du Vernay’s ‘Queen Sugar’ or by Oscar winning director Paolo Sorrentino – she has constructed a creative habitat and welcomed others to it. A true multi-hyphenate, Perera’s open and autodidact technique is also highlighted by a long list of collaborations, composing music for moving image, art installations & dance.

Composer and pianist Kaan Bulak works between cultures and explores diverse musical approaches. As a composer his works found their ways into the repertoires of international classical soloists, as a performer he developed a signature sound with for his augmented piano and strings ensemble, powered with custom-built radial speakers by Martion.
