Animismus, the exibition + conference, and Orfeu Negro by DuChamp

[#] Open  Thu 15th the exibition Animismus, in Haus der Kulturen der Welt HKW! Aside of the exibition, there will be a conference!

“How do we distinguish things from beings? The exhibition “Animism” examines the delineation between life and non-life on the basis of aesthetic symptoms.

The scientific positivism of modernity was based on the categorical separation of nature and culture, of the subjective and objective world. Animism stood for the counter-image of this self-concept. It is at this juncture that the exhibition intervenes. With works by some 30 international artists, curator Anselm Franke transforms the Haus der Kulturen der Welt into a self-reflexive “anthropological museum of modernity”.

With works by: Adam Avikainen, Agentur/Agency, Anna und Bernhard Blume, Marcel Broodthaers, Didier Demorcy, Walt Disney, Jimmie Durham, León Ferrari, J.J. Grandville, Candida Höfer, Tom Holert, Ken Jacobs, Yayoi Kusama, Lars Laumann, Len Lye, Daria Martin, Angela Melitopoulos und Maurizio Lazzarato, Vincent Monnikendam, Istvan Orosz, Roee Rosen, Dierk Schmidt, Erik Steinbrecher, Paulo Tavares, Rosemarie Trockel, Martin Zillinger a.o.

[#] and tonight, in Mindpirates the screening of “Orfeu Negro”, a tale of love, loss, magic and music. Oh the music!

Winner of both the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus (Orfeu negro) brings the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to the twentieth-century madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its eye-popping photography and ravishing, epochal soundtrack, Black Orpheus was an international cultural event, and it kicked off the bossa nova craze that set hi-fi across America spinning.
‘A riotous, rapturous explosion of sound and color’ – (The Washington Post).


Schlesische Strasse 38
Haus F (3rd Hinterhof)

Screening starts at 20!
