REGULAR LINE

PORTRAITS OF MASTERS is a series of art works / drawings by Slovak visual artist Martin Derner consisting of interventions into existing portraits of the most important composers of contemporary music such as John Cage, Steve Reich, David Tudor, Earle Brown, Morton Feldman, Philip Glass and Milan Adamčiak In these works Derner is using various draftsmanship materials and techniques (pencil, pen, chalk, etc.). By using character based, symbolic and material, author examines the formation of dialogue – a game with rules of re-contextualization, but also deteritorialisation of original. These interventions are kind of a commentary on the original photos while also an unique homage to each composer

Spontaneity in Structure: The Parametric Method of Group Improvisation for Musicians and Nonmusicians

Improvisation is often called composition in real time; however, the word improvisation means a sort of spontaneous action. How the balance between spontaneity and structure can be found without damaging the free flow of a consciousness stream? How to interact spontaneously in a group improvisation to create a music stuff which sounds same time structuralized and attractively unpredictable?

Heart Beat Ear Drum – A film about Z’EV

NK PRESENTS: Heart Beat Ear Drum – A film about Z’EV by Ellen Zweig

VENUE:
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.

Closing Statement

*** 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.
