NK PRESENTS: Heart Beat Ear Drum – A film about Z’EV by Ellen Zweig
SPEKTRUM | art science community
Bürknerstraße 12 12047 Berlin
A portrait of the artist and musician Z’EV, known for his punk era scrap metal music – how his music changed and grew and how his personal journey led him to the margins of art and the depths of heart.
In addition to interviews with Z’EV, there are interviews with a community of artists who have known him since the 1970s, curators who have encountered him in the 1990s, and young people who have only heard his recorded music or read his philosophical texts.

Video Out Distribution (Vancouver, Canada) is pleased to present SyntheticSound, a program of experimental video shorts for an evening at NK.
This screening, curated by Alan Kollins, formerly of Video Out Distribution, brings together a collection of significant experimental video and music works from the Crista Dahl Media Library & Archive.
The program attempts to chronicle important cinematic experimentations, technological advancements, sub cultural movements, and societal analyses with works dating from the 1970s to now – videos by Laurie McDonald, COUM Transmissions with Cosey Fanni Tutti, Arlo Action with Terry Riley, Fantasy Factory, Clark Nikolai, Eric Lorenz, Michael Venus, Mathilde Geromine, Elizabeth Vander Zagg, Brendan Baudat, Lief Hall, and Duane Linklater.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Berlin based artist and theorist, Nine Yamamoto-Masson.
*** NK as an on-site location will cease to exist as of Mid September 2015, but will continue as a Collective. We are no longer handling requests for on-site events, but are open to external projects & curation requests. We will continue our activities off-site at other venues. The NK mailbox will be answered on a weekly basis. Please subscribe to our mailing list to hear about our future activities.***
We will still host a couple of more events before closing our doors to the public as a concert space. A benefit fundraiser for NK & a few more events that needed our support to happen.
