Celebrating Pride Month 2021, Chromatic Wednesdays focus on “Gender” as a theme in this month’s program. The first episode brings together Teo Vlad and Arielle Cottingham to produce a collaborative live performance at Apartment Project’s space in Neukölln.
On the second episode of Chromatic Wednesday’s Ecology month, we are happy to host Andrei Cucu and Janine Eisenächer. The event will begin with Cucu’s sound performance titled NESTS, drafted as an attempt to disrupt the hierarchy between biophonic and anthropogenic sounds.
Where is my body: in the middle of destruction. I destroy. I listen to the destruction with all my senses. I listen to nature in cooperation with nature. I use nature’s reflections and I travel from birth to collapse. How does my body react to and take part in this destruction? How does the destroying body turn into the destroyed one?
Seçil Yersel is hosting Yelta Köm for the 15th episode of Chromatic Wednesdays. Their conversion will cover a long span, which is from inhabiting practices to modes of living. The discussion will be around the questions: How do we witness the practices of living together? Who transforms the city? Can architects make a neighborhood? Can we reconsider the invisible power of the inhabitants together with the power of everyday life practices? What are the ownership discussions on land? The talk will evolve strolling through different neighborhoods of Istanbul and Berlin.
Apartment Project’s aim to give voice to the figures who have been resisting the gentrification projects in Berlin, results in another episode where we welcome Berlin-based artist KAI at our studio to talk about a special case: Eschschloraque!
For the first iteration of this month, we will host .PK. in our cellar. .PK. is going to present an exploratory aural satori whose aim is to present a story obsessed with incompatible sounds. Her fast industrial beats will be accompanied by video projections by Chromatic Wednesdays crew to form a sharp and deconstructed narrative about the livelihoods of our city and its inhabitants.
On the third episode of Chromatic Wednesday’s “Sustainability” month, we will be leaving the floor to violinist/violist Penelope Gkika and double bassist Adam Goodwin who reinterpret sacred music practices from various cultures around the world.
For the first episode of our Borders theme, we are thrilled to welcome the musical embodiment of the region’s intertwined and rich composition — A.G.A. Trio, namely Deniz Mahir Kartal, Mikail Yakut, Arsen Petrosyan.
