Conversas Berlin #7
A weekly series of informal meetings to discuss a variation of projects and interests.
Mittwoch 9. November 2016, 20 – 22 Uhr
Following ‚Conversadores‘ joining this night:
Christina Kral (Proposals Formations Workbooks)
Martin Skauen (Twisted, dark and stupid)
Fatima Camara (Developing artistic direction… deciding where to go next?)
Christina creates site-specific, sculptural objects and installations—proposals that investigate the transformative potential of everyday objects and routines. She works as solo artist, in temporary collaborations, and as permanent member of the Finnish-German artist collective YKON. As part of the Hybrid Publishing Group she explores new forms of knowledge production and dissemination with open source technologies. http://christinakral.net/
Martin Skauen is a Norwegian artist living in Berlin and Oslo. Surrealism, tragedy and humor are main ingredients in his work, be it large scale figurative drawings, video performance or painting. At converses he will talk about his Instagram project and his daily posting of absurd art world commentary, erotic surrealism and other absurdities in modern culture. http://www.martinskauen.com/
Camara released her debut album in April 2016 on Parachute records. Canadian born to a large Portuguese family, she now resides in Berlin. As producer and writer, the sound she has cultivated exists as a collage of the diverse musical influences that have defined each chapter of her storied life: bass guitar lines wrought with the new wave sound that marked her formative adolescence, drums that echo the electronic music she migrated to during her early adulthood in Toronto’s dance music scene, and an overriding melancholy that signals the conflicted feelings she has when considering the thin layer of dust that has collected upon her chair at the family dinner table since she made her move to Berlin. http://www.parachuterecords.com/artists/camara
Conversas Berlin is a series of weekly informal meetings so that we can get to know and discuss a variation of projects and interests.
During the Conversas two/three Conversadores (those who talk at Conversas) bring something to share with the gathered group, for thirty minutes each. As the title suggests itself, Conversas (Conversations in Portuguese) aim at an equal set up from which both the Conversadores and the group, should be able to profit.
Conversas exists of a series of 10 and runs every Wednesday until November 30.
Initiated in Lisbon 2012 by Constança Saraiva and Mafalda Fernandes, Conversas is nowadays a project of many people and cities. Conversas Berlin takes places at a shared studio space, and is co-organized by Sabrina Basten and Sarie Nijboer.
