RETUNE FESTIVAL

RETUNE FESTIVAL

06.10.2016 - 08.10.2016
@ GlogauAIR
Martha Church // Glogauer Str. 22
BadaBoom Berlin // Glogauer Str. 19

Facebook event

The Retune Festival transforms GlogauAIR into a playground of the futures. The space will be turned into experimental design studios, workshops, lecture halls, and offline chatrooms.

Exhibitions, talks, and workshops are clustered around four main themes:
# Immersed Narratives – Exploring the opportunities of storytelling in virtual reality.
# Neuronal Creation – Expanding creative expression with Artificial Intelligence.
# Networked Transplantations - Extending bodies and senses.
# Creative Production - Investigating how creatives get from prototypes to products.

Check out our line-up of participating artists & speakers and the schedule.


# Immersed Narratives
With the advent of affordable high end virtual reality headsets, content creators can immerse their audience in a way like never before. This opens up possibilities for new kinds of experiences, interactions and narrative methods. The language of the medium has not yet been set and makes it an ideal playground for artists and explorers.

Within this track, the Retune Festival will explore the opportunities and pitfalls of narration in virtual and augmented reality.

# Neuronal Creation
Artificial Intelligence is invisibly changing our everyday interactions with computers. Artistic practice drags these technologies into the open. Working experimentally with these algorithms makes them a powerful tool to expand creative expression. A worldwide community of coding artists mediates between research, industry practice and the wider public.

The Retune Festival triggers a debate about these technologies' implications on culture and society.

# Networked Transplantations
Smart prosthesis seamlessly replace limbs and implantable RFID chips are widely sold in online shops. New senses extend our perception of the world, networked subcutaneous computers with subconscious interfaces will become part of our bodies. Artists and pioneers are starting to explore those new ways of living with technology and open our eyes to new perspectives.

The Retune Festival gives stage to actors in this new field of body extensions, transhumanist practice and networked senses. Together we explore implications to ourselves and to society.

# Creative Production
Times for creative minds to become creative producers have never been better. Artists and designers have been incorporating interactive and networked technology in their works for decades. Now their experimental products create new impulses and resonate perfectly with a market that puts high value on the creatives' core competences: individuality, design and experience.

The Retune Festival explores the way creative entrepreneurs get from prototype to serial production. What is needed to bring ideas not just on the streets, but on all the streets in every city?

Photo-Berlin 2016

VII Masterclass 2016-2017

27.09.2016 - 30.09.2016
@ GlogauAIR

The VII Masterclass is an educational initiative which aims to sustain participants in the making of  long term projects, laying the foundations for their photojournalistic identities. After the 2014/2015 Milan event, Berlin will play host to the upcoming VII Masterclass, which will take place over a period of seven months. Among the photographers who attended the very first VII Masterclass, some have obtained international recognition, such as Carolina Arantes (Prix Fondation Lagardère) and Nadege Mazars (Magnum Foundation Grant 2016).

During the VII Masterclass, participants will have direct access to six teaching Masters over three scheduled sessions of four days each. They will also be supported and monitored by a Master of their choice through a monthly Skype call, in order to evaluate progress and solve any potential issues.

Within each of the three Masterclass sessions, participants will benefit from the contribution of a number of guests hailing from the editorial, artistic and visual culture worlds. Diversity in the contributions offered is a distinctive feature of the Masterclass curriculum and reflects the commitment of VII Photo to further widen the horizons of photojournalism.

The photojournalism industry has deeply changed over the past 15 years and a different kind of training has become mandatory for the new generation of photographers, who are now required to increase their skills and expand their knowledge through interaction with disciplines culturally aligned with photography.

For this reason, some of the themes explored in the last VII Masterclass program were – amongst others – video art, crowd-funding, exhibition design, digital archiving and the concept of mental maps, which enable better and alternative work organization.

The VII Masterclass is open to all photographers, with no age limit or nationality restrictions. Classes will be taught in English. Participants will be selected by a jury after the submission of a 20-image portfolio and a text illustrating the project that they intend to develop following the year’s theme: The other.

The project

The theme of the second VII Masterclass, The Other focuses on a fundamental issue of contemporary society: The Other is what is different to us. The Other is not us, but it is also us.

The Other is an immigrant, if we are still living in our homeland, or a foreign native that we don’t understand, if we are the expatriated.

It is an ill person, when we are in good health, or someone privileged, when we are less fortunate. The Other is our most truthful mirror, even though we often think that this mirror is distorted.

As a consequence, photographers have a duty to reflect on encountering The Other, in order to instill a positive change in people’s mentality, through the stories they portray.


First session // September 27 – 30, 2016
Finding your story and your own style

The first session of the second VII Masterclass will focus on the importance of finding a personal style and how to hit upon the right story to tell.

Two VII photographers will guide participants through this process, starting from the experience of one of the participants of the previous Masterclass.

A guest historian will illustrate the many stories that it’s possible to uncover in the city of Berlin, and a guest journalist will help participants to acquire and use the necessary skills that are needed to search through the news and develop a narrative.

To complete the picture, two internationally acclaimed photographers, who turned their quest for a personal and unique style into a professional career, will give a presentation of their most recent projects.

VII Photographers: Stefano De Luigi, Ashley Gilbertson

Uzma Sultan // Natalia Urnía // Maud Vareillaud-Bouzzine

The variety of subjects treated and the diversity of mediums used reflect by itself the commitment to openness, innovation and to the development of the artists’ own identity that resides at GlogauAIR’s core. Promoting artistic dialogue across cultures is also one of the aims of the institution which sees itself as a facilitator platform for this interchange. This is the reason why during the 23rd and 24th the Open Studios September 2016 will merge the multicultural voices of the resident artists with the artists of the guest exhibition Self-translation, along with the four invited musicians and will likewise include an artists’ talk on The state of contemporary art in Turkey.

Every cosmos is a realisation of the possibilities of a dialogue.
And with this insight, I have the basis for a field theory of translation.

Vilem Flusser, Für eine Feldtheorie der Übersetzung, 1967.

Whilst we are living in rapidly changing political and cultural environments maybe we think more about the neighbourhoods in which we lived or are living now. Are there still the same borders, the same societies or the same neighbourhood, or do we actually know our neighbours at all? How long could we remain within these environments? What are the motives that make us to move or remain? And how do we perceive all and translate it into our world with our inner interpretation?

In other words, are we all Self - Translators?

Are we Self-Translators, simply a metaphor for the process of relocation or cultural transfer and negotiation precipitated by exile, migration or travel? As translators, are we devoid of ‘originality’ as cultures are inevitably becoming increasingly hybrid in this age of globalisation?
The fact is most evident to the artists who self translates, who is conscious of both the hybridity of the culture s/he creates with in and her or his own art.

When you sit down to write a joke you are doing this:
                              OO
Where each O is a reality. They are both north magnetic poles that resist and resist and flip over and pinch your goddamn finger.

You want them to find a shared point; a singularity from which the reality of the first part can be lead astray (ashtray) and end up barreling down the curve of the second reality – hustling around the bend and down the stairs before it can apprehend that, based on its previous assumptions, nothing makes any sense. Then the bewilderment, then the yawning of new realizations, the glance back to that singularity beyond which everything is TILT, beyond which the blue lens is now red.

A joke is winking your left eye and then winking your right eye and then coming to a see- sawing between the two winks that coalesces into plain old vision. Vision is always made up of two competing scenes: the left and right eye – the winking between them proves that it is an illusion. Two complete and contradictory spheres vibrating in the same space.

In a joke there is economy: Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.*

When a piece of art makes a joke it is an agent independent of the artist: Among our articles of lazy hardware we recommend a faucet which stops dripping when nobody is listening to it... **

The artists in The Greatest Nonsense present you with a group of works that tell some jokes; about art, about sex, about discovery, about condiments.


*Maybe Groucho Marx, who knows.

Kino Loop is part of the International Kino Movement. It's a global network of filmmakers that meet for regular festivals, so called Kabarets, to produce short films in very limited time. It's all about exchange and sharing, no competition and no awards.

Everybody, from beginner to full professional, is welcome to join our first Kabaret this September. There will be three rounds of filmmaking: 1x48h and 2x72h. Each round starts with informal production meeting to introduce people and project ideas and ends with a screening of the finished films. What happens in between is entirely up to you. There are no restrictions or guidelines in terms of genre, content, style or team building. Everything is possible and everything will be screened without reviewing or censorship.

Capture your life with art. try to tell a story with art.
It's a personal journey. art became an instrument to express my personal changes.
Malsomalso exhibition takes the vistors through my world. a world of constant development, emotions and different sceneries.

Abstract art is mostly unplanned and makes you rethink and can redefine yourself. I want to invite you to this special moment, where a young artist shows his thinking and his mind-set through mixed art pieces and hopefully it will move something.

Wolf Moon Tour 2016

@ GlogauAIR

Facebook event

The central theme of the performance Wolf is to highlight the relationship between day and night, the cycles of the moon, and how it affects nature’s drives and instincts.

The performance Wolf explores our basic needs, how they act in tune with the phases of the moon and the interplay of day and night. Wolves relation to the moon is a sign of their affinity with its life giving force. Wolf is the final performance in the trilogy MOON. The moon’s gravitational force controls the rhythm and cycle of water. It is the middle ground between the light of the sun, the darkness of night, and the sphere between the conscious and the unconscious.
The performance/concert is an unique live act with butohartist/dancer Frauke and electro/glitch musician TM404 (Andreas Tilliander).
Wolf is touring internationally 2016 and has its premiere at GlogauAIR.

Coven Berlin

14.07.2016 - 16.07.2016
@ GlogauAIR

Facebook event

Coven Berlin’s new performative experience, Labor or Labor, approaches all these questions and answers none. Within a queer feminist frame, current global politics of production and reproduction will be dissected and reinvented by invited artists, witches, and other unproductivity advocates in this celebration of taking time.

Imperialist and sexist systems of control are imprinted in the way society thinks about -and acts around- labor. Be it how we work, how we give birth, or how we use our bodies in order to make money, we carry traces of labor exploitation and social privilege in our sweat. Almost inevitably, our professional choices determine our lifestyle, our careers define who we are, and our success (or lack thereof) assigns us a place in society. Which queer feminist strategies help us challenge the oppressive working dynamics of patriarchal neo-liberalism? What are the socio-political implications of unpaid work, mail-order brides, and emotional labor? How can we move on from the nuclear family model? What defines sex work? Is “having it all” a middle-class white women dream?

Labor or Labor will present the work of artists of various disciplines with a common focus on labor. This queer feminist experience will take place in the form of talks, performances, screenings, and other events like a vigil ritual, where everyone will be invited to lose their sense of time and space throughout the night. The topics addressed by the invited artists, activists, academics, witches and workers will include but not be limited to motherhood, queer parenting, birth, sex work, body politics, labor exploitation, social privilege, and politics of production and reproduction.

@ GlogauAIR

Facebook event

This is an exhibition of contemporary art created as a result of a workshop on cultural enterprise managed by Instituto Cervantes, La Red and GlogauAIR Berlin. It is being carried out by a group of multidisciplinary artists with one purpose: to make visitors question the nature of certain impulses established as 'normal' in a social context.

The artists Irene Cruz, Sara Ferrer, Ana Guallart, Candela Paniagua, Georgina Espasa, Sergi Solanas, Belén Majdalani, Diego Puerto, Jorge Benavides, Camilo Correa, Elen Moos, María de Sande and Ana Márquez present a series of reactions to stimulae that are a part of our daily lives.

New sensations invite us to experiment with the limits of consciousness with the intention of surprising. Participants are invited to perform actions prohibited or accepted by society. What if we forget taboos? Would that change our daily lives?

Friday 8th of July
