E-Studio - Grand Opening

Das Studio für Elektroakustische Musik der Akademie der Künste hat am Hanseatenweg ein
neues Studio bezogen. Das Eröffnungskonzert zu einer neuen Ära des Studios präsentiert
ausgewählte Studioproduktionen im Spannungsfeld von Neuer Musik, Improvisation und
Elektronik mit Werken von Hans-Joachim Hespos, Georg Katzer, Chris Newman, Michael Beil
und Ludger Brümmer.
Eigens für diesen Auftakt treffen sich zudem drei exzeptionelle Musiker der internationalen
musikalischen Avantgarde-Szene: Blixa Bargeld (Einstürzende Neubauten), Caspar
Brötzmann (Massaker) und Michael Wertmüller erarbeiten im neuen Studio ein Klangereig-
nis, einen improvisierten Big Bang, der bekannte Zuordnungen und Hörerfahrungen zum
Einstürzen bringt. Die Klangregie und Produktion übernimmt Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode)
als erster Producer in Residence des neuen E-Studios.

Vom Esprit der Gesten – Hans Hartung, das Informel und die Folgen

curator Andreas Schalhorn

Kupferstichkabinett Berlin, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
Matthäikirchplatz 6, 10785 Berlin-Tiergarten

Den besonderen Anlass für die Ausstellung bildet die im April diesen Jahres erfolgte, von Clemens Fahnemann, Berlin, vermittelte Schenkung von 213 druckgraphischen Werken Hans Hartungs (1904- 1989) durch die Fondation Hans Hartung & Anna-Eva Bergman, Antibes, an das Kupferstichkabinett.

Der zeitliche Rahmen der Ausstellung erstreckt sich von der Epoche des Informel und des Abstakten Expressionismus, also der Jahre um 1950 bis 1960, bis hin zur unmittelbaren Gegenwart: von Wols und Jackson Pollock bis zu Günther Förg und Damien Hirst. Zu sehen sind ferner ausgewählte Werke von Pierre Soulages, Karl Otto Götz, Emil Schumacher, K.R.H. Sonderborg, Salvador Dalí, Günter Brus, Maria Lassnig, Emilio Vedova, Peter Brüning, Cy Twombly, Willem de Kooning, Mark Tobey, Roy Lichtenstein, Hana Usui, Emil Schreiber, Chris Newman, Gabriele Basch, Katharina Hinsberg und Mark Sheinkman.

'Chris Newman is one of Britain's great all-round artistic talents, famous for his outrageous and hilarious songs, but just as important for his radical take on composition and for his work in the visual arts such as painting and video. Now resident in Berlin, Newman is seldom seen or heard in his native country and we are delighted to welcome him back, together with his recital partner Michael Finnissy and other close collaborators, for an evening of his music, paintings and videos. A special event and not to be missed.’
