For this edition of Chromatic Wednesdays, I will perform several pieces from the cassette tape Letter to N released by Het Generiek in June 2021.
For the first episode of “Chromatic Wednesdays” theme “Survival”, we have an experimental electronic improvisation duo in our studio. Sara Persico and Melih Sarigöl debuted their project after a “blind- date” on stage in August 2018 at Multiversal in Berlin.
We finalize our program for June with good music and cold raki. We host Gazino Neukölln in the Apartment Project. An intimate “Gazino” night with flying napkins, plate smashing, song requests, love stories, lots of fun, and a little bit of sadness.
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?
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.

Apartment Project is pleased to host Leman S. Darıcıoğlu’s new performance titled There is an ocean between us on 28 July 2020, Tuesday. The 7-hour long performance is the result of a thread of self-directed questions. Darıcıoğlu’s ongoing exploration of the body’s boundaries and its role as a vessel in personal expression responding to predominant social and political paradigms continues by addressing the newly arising definitions for distance, limitation, intimacy, and borders. These notions that are recently restoring their contexts are at the center of the artists’ new work, where she* reconsiders the four windows (‘screens’) of Apartment Project as a single narrative, utilizing only the facade as the project space, keeping the doors
of the venue closed for public access.
AARC is an experimental artistic solidarity project conceived by Errant Sound and Apartment Project in Berlin. After the racist murders in Hanau, the two groups met to initiate a collaboration between the two project spaces – also as a political statement – by forming the “Artists Against Racism Collaborative (AARC)”.
The short form AARC refers to the word arc — arc as a bridge between artists of different fields and cultural backgrounds. At the same time, the title phonetically evokes the “AARGGH!” interjection, conveying common feelings of despair, fear and exhaustion among communities who are affected by racist attacks and/or exposed to subtle forms of racism. The collectively formulated voice develops individual and/or joint responses to such emotions and names and unveils everyday practices of racism. Through this collaboration, the two venues aim to create a mutual artistic conversation, facilitate a process of collaboration and develop new forms of solidarity.
The exhibition “Funke” by Selda Asal, Emre Birişmen and Melih Sarıgöl for 48h Neukölln Festival intends to reflect the timeline of transmutation – the process of pressure and explosion expansion – and the spark that provides clues to a possible path in the fog after the first explosion. The exhibition is designed in two modules…
