Spektrum is an exciting new open art space in the heart of Kreuzköllns Reuterkiez. The location has an inspiring concept that seeks to bring the practices of art and science together in an open community space. Spektrum will feature regular installations, exhibitions, talks and performances as well as offering workshop spaces for collaborative exchange and experimentation. The opening weekends program includes Nenad Popov, Mikomikona, Matthijs Munnik, Kris Limbach, Hopek Quirin and many more.
SPEKTRUM is a space of convergence for cultural communities and transdisciplinary groups emerging and operating in and off Berlin. The project aims to bring confrontation, open knowledge and a platforms for idealisation, realisation and presentation of technology-based artworks, science-focused events and futuristic utopias based on the principle “do-it-together-with-others”. Above all, we are an open space promoting participatory processes to co-define and co-design a social and physical playground for curiosity and critical understanding.
Nenad Popov is a media anarchist with a focus on live cinema pieces, sound installations, film installations, weird sound making contraptions and occasional parasitism on public cultural funds. He has collaborated with artists such as Daan Brinkmann, Electronic Opera, Erfan Abdi, Klara Ravat, Lillevan and his works have been exhibited at Sonic Acts, Dis-Patch, TodaysArt, E-Pulse, Share and Ars Electronica.
Mikomikona experimentally investigates the dynamic transformability of sound into image, image into sound and the effects of cross media interference. They develop devices that enable us to connect and transform visual signals into acoustic signals and vice versa. They explore these devices in different audio-visual set-ups creating a synaesthetical environment. Their work has been presented in international major festivals such as Ars Electronica, CTM, TodaysArt and Netmage.
Matthijs Munnik is an artist exploring the limits of our sensory capabilities, using light, sound and new media in installations and performances. He is interested in the interaction between light and our senses. He has shown work at museums and festivals internationally, among others Sonic Acts (NL), Ars Electronica(AU), NCCA (RU), Mostra de Arte Digital (BR).
Kris Limbach is a sound and audiovisual artist residing in Berlin. As a graduated physicist, he applies his scientific knowledge into his sound and visual works. He is also involved in film projects since 1998, exploring constantly formats and aesthetics of cinema. He is part of the audiovisual trio Panoptik and curates, together with Pierce Warnecke, the emitter micro label and emitter micro festival, a biennial experimental sound festival in Berlin.
Hopek Quirin is a sound artist exploring dynamics based on mixed instruments such as electric bass, objects, micro-tapes, motors and effects. He is collaborating with Jochen Arbeit (Soundscapes, Stupid Green), Anton Mobin, Anthony Donovan, Kris Limbach, Bryan Lewis Saunders, MaCu, Classwar Karaoke, ABQ and Tomas Nochteff (Mueran Humanos).
