The Aesthetics of Resistance. Rap Remixes on Peter Weiss’s description of the Pergamon Altar in German, Turkish, English. An open-ended experiment! – Ayben, the renowned Turkish rapper from Istanbul; Volkan T error, the German-born Berlin resident and pioneer of Turkish Hip Hop, Hard- & Metalcore; and David Moss, the American-born Berlin resident and doyen of experimental vocal and percussion forms, have been invited to work with the magnificent description of the Pergamon Altar that opens the monumental three-volume novel “The Aesthetics of Resistance” (1976–81) by Peter Weiss. Using the installation, the three deconstruct and remix the text into new musical rhythms in German, Turkish and English.
Coproduction by Freunde Guter Musik Berlin e.V., Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, and Ruhrtriennale. Funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation, with support from the SAHA Association.
