Residenzen Berlin – Detroit – Berlin

Part of "Detroit – Berlin: One Circle"

In preparation of “Detroit-Berlin: One Circle” the artists Joana Tischkau and Anta Helena Recke embark on a research trip to Detroit together with the Berlin-based sound artist Nguyễn Baly (the trip is supported by the Goethe-Institut and HAU Hebbel am Ufer). Recke and Tischkau explore a pop-musical historiography that is deeply influenced by Black music and Black music history. Their research materials on Detroit’s history of entertainment and techno music complement an archive that was established in collaboration with the artists Elisabeth Hampe and Frieder Blume. This archive focuses on Afro-German folk music (Schlager) as well as on hip hop and pop music from the 1950s on. The artist group will not only fuse their findings into the fictional artist movement Schwarze Deutsche Welle (SDW), it will also perform them in an installation at the “Detroit-Berlin: One Circle” festival. Nguyễn Baly travels to Detroit to find out how particular sounds allow us to connect music to specific places. For her live sound-performance, she has teamed up Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation: they explore acoustic atmospheres in performative spaces, asking how they transmit certain moods. The artistic duo is interested in the relation between movement and sounds that are perceived as spatiality.
